Zack Snyder's action girls hit the panic switch in the new trailer for Sucker Punch

Feb. 22, 2011by: Dave Davis

I don't know what kind of mental checklist director Zack Snyder had for his madhouse action epic SUCKER PUNCH, but if he forgot to include anything, I can't imagine what it might be.

Snyder's massive mélange of stylized hyperviolence, sexy gun-girls and comic book/fantasy imagery brings unreality into our reality on March 25th, and certainly seems hellbent on being something you've never experienced before.

You probably decided long ago whether it had your interest, but if you needed further convincing we have one last peek in the new frantic trailer.

Check it out below or in HD at Yahoo. (And if, for some inexplicable reason, you feel compelled to "paint" on the trailer, you can do that HERE.)

Extra Tidbit: Jamie Chung originally auditioned for Vanessa Hudgens' role of "Blondie", and got the part of "Amber" after original star Emma Stone dropped out.

I thought Watchmen was decent, not really what I wanted out of a film adaptation, but it was at least faithful and respectful of the source material. I haven't loved a Snyder film since Dawn of the Dead, and I'm looking forward to seeing what he does with another original project. I know, I know, Dawn of the Dead wasn't exactly an original concept, but "mall+zombies" is about the only thing that it took from the original version. This looks like it could be the all out eyeball fuck that

Finding it tough to feel enthusiastic about this film, despite enjoying Watchmen, but it's still something I'll probably give a chance at the cinema. There's just a degree to which Suckerpunch feels like it's trying too hard to be cool, and it kinda looks like the best music video the Spice Girls never made. Hopefully it'll have some depth to back up the eye candy, but the trailers don't really suggest that to me. Time will tell.

This looks like a real fun live action anime.

Also, is anyone else glad to see that Jena Malone is in this?

PS: What's with the crazy amount of neg'd comments on this story?

I dunno. Looked like a helluva lot of fun by the first trailer, but the more I see, the more I think this thing looks like a hot mess. And not in a good way. I think Watchmen was Snyder's best effort so far. And I didn't know anything about it until I saw it in the theater. This shit just looks goofy at this point.

Snyder = McG 2.0

Snyder is a talented music video/commercial director - BUT I'm still not convinced by his storytelling skills

"Sucker Punch" does look nice but I reckon it gets tiresome in the long run. Happy to be proven wrong though...

It's going to be pretty looking, and have lots of slo-mo sequences to be sure, but I don't think there's a story in there. And from all the chatter I'm hearing about bad test screenings, I may just wait to see this on dvd.

Have no idea what to think of it.

Basically if this has a sh*t story, I don't care how cool it looks. So here's hoping it's something good. I think all the gals he cast are pretty good, so here's hoping! This will be one of those wait & see type movies for me.

Is it too early to call this the best movie of the year?

Hot chicks, dragons, robots, Nazis, and giant Gatling gun wielding samurai. Seriously, what more could you ask for?

This looks like a great visual experience. I mean finally a movie that looks good and is not a remake. Not sure why people are not pumped for it. I mean it actually looks like a good time. Remember when movies were fun to watch?

fuck Vanessa Hudgens

Other then that dumb annoying bitch being in the movie, it looks ....ok I guess. We'll have to see though. I liked 300 and Watchmen, but I dunno, this doesn't grab me like those did.

want to see this but this trailer looks bad

I like prefer to play videogames rather than watch them. I hope this is good. The design looks awesome. But do really have to go through the movie knowing its all the lead character's escapist fantasy? Lame-out.

Cannot. Fucking. Wait.

Have been stocked on Snyders trip since 300 and have enjoyed everything I've seen by him. This thing just looks like a wet dream.

And Emily Browning looks bang on stunning in this.

Cannot wait for this!

I don't know if I'm in the minority here or what, but I thought Watchmen was as near a perfect film as you can possibly get. I think Snyder has serious Nolan potential, and at some point one of his movies is just going to literally blow peoples' minds. I don't know if it will be this one, but it DEFINITELY looks like it will be a crapload of fun, at the very least.

Why the thumbs down? He SAID he was sorry!

Me, I'm damn stoked for this. If anything it's hot chicks with guns and swords fighting giant samurai and robot nazis.

This looks fucking awesome. I just have a feeling this thing is going to bomb badly. But as long as I get to watch Jena Malone kicks some ass I am a happy man.

This looks fantastic. Can't wait to see what Synder does with Superman: Man of Steel.

And I had no idea Emma Stone dropped out of this.
