‘Sucker Punch’ trailer

Posted by · 9:50 pm · July 26th, 2010

Warner Bros. turned quite a few heads with its presentation of “Sucker Punch” at Comic-Con.  The crowd was treated to an extended trailer featuring Led Zeppelin’s “When the Levee Breaks,” which, of course, won’t likely ever be seen outside those walls given the rights issues with such a track.  But the new trailer has been released and it kind of gives you a vibe, but I still don’t get what the hell’s going on.  Intrigued, but confused. Click on the image below to check it out via Appple, or watch the embed on the jump.

    Even though its artificial, Zack Snyder has a pretty epic sense of scope.

    Excluding “Dawn of the Dead”, which doesn’t really fit in with the rest of his filmography since, I have found the trailers for his movies far better than the movies themselves. This looks like “Dungeons & Dragons” with a bigger budget, but we’ll see. I’m always keen to see a big budget movie with women at the front and centre of it.

    “The Legends of Ga’Hoole”, on the other hand has an awful trailer and I doubt the movie’s any better.

    looks a little too much like an ad for a video game for me…but I do enjoy Jena Malone so we’ll see.

    I’m there. Simple as that. I will be leaving my brain at the door but that looks like way too much over the top insistent fun to pass up. My only question is why isn’t it in 3D?

    He didn’t want to do it in 3D andWarner didn’t press him to do it. He made Guardians in 3D and likes it a lot, so he feels *spoiled* and doesn’t want a lesser post-conversion 3D in his films. Collider has an excellent interview with him at comic-con where he talks about the production of the film, including the premise, which actually sounds very creative and intriguing.

    I haven’t liked Snyder since “Dawn of the Dead” (“300” was terrible, and “Watchmen” was more ambitious than successful), so we’ll have to see about this one. All of the trailers to Snyder’s films have been excellent, but two of the films have completely failed as far as getting me to feel anything.

    Was incredibly impressed with just how good “Dawn of the Dead” was, but “300” was a disappointment and “Watchmen,” while ambitious, failed for a number of reasons. I would like for Snyder to get back into some sort of groove, but this looks to be in the same vein of his last two features. I’m not holding my breath for this one…

    “Dawn of the Dead” was an impressive film, but I found “300” to be boring and overrated, and I loved “Watchmen”. But none of this even matters because after watching “Bright Star” I’ll look at anything Abbie Cornish is in.

    The trailer was a mess, but a fun mess. Snyder obviously doesn’t bring any masterful dialogue or acting out of his films, but they’re always a damn fun time at the movies.

    The perplexing presence of Vanessa Hudgens aside, I’m on board so far.

    I think I’d rather take a sucker punch to the face than see this.

    What surprises me is that Snyder can get a studio to sponsor his juvenile puerile fantasies. I thought this was gonna be his Death Proof, a low budget chicks kicking butt B movie. But this has also inevitably turned out to be a big budget green screen laden exercise in excess.

    I mean there is footage of dragons and blimps and all. If von trier or someone wants to make something trippy, they won’t even get a fifth of this budget. All this money spent in the service of a soulless meaningless vision.

    “The film follows a young girl in the 1950s about to be lobotomized and as she attempts to escape an asylum with her inmate friends.”

    Best premise ever for a film? I vote yes.

    Y’all are harsh.

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve rolled my eyes at a Snyder film, only to be dragged by my curiosity at the last minute to the theater and having an awesome time.

    This is going to be loud, stupid, messy fun. And after the drudgery of winter, I for one will be ready for it.

    Dawn of the Dead is one of the few good horror remakes, 300 was decent fun, and Watchmen, contrary to fanboy belief, was ambitious and succeeded IMO. This looks like balls-the-the-wall insanity and I love it.

    Dammit, why do they have to cut so fast?

    I cannot tell if I’m interested or not.

    I was the same as Red Wine. I was somehow under the illusion that this was going to be a smaller movie.
