Say what you will about Zack Snyder’s storytelling skills, but it’s an irrefutable fact that the dude can conjure up images of sheer gorgeousness from his talented mind. I think the guy’s great, and have loved all of his films so far (haven’t seen that owl one yet, mind) so I’m looking forward to his next one.
Sucker Punch tells the tale of a young girl locked up in a mental institute, whose only escape from the pains of daily life is to escape into a fantasy world inside her imagination. Her friends at the institute join her there, and somehow they come to realise that the alternate reality may help them escape their real-life fate. I’m not sure how much sense that makes, but after watching this trailer, it doesn’t really have to.
Subtle it ain’t, but goddamn, them’s some sweet visuals. What do you think?
