Our heads are still reeling from the absolutely insane trailer for Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch that debuted over the weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con. We wished we could immediately hit rewind and play it over and over again, but of course ... we couldn't. Thankfully, Warner Bros. has released it to the public, so now we can—and so can you!

Here's what we liked the most about what we saw:


The film's pedigree

Snyder directed both Watchmen and 300, and his lush visual style seems perfectly suited for this trippy tale set in an alternate reality dreamworld.


Our heroine

Emily Browning stars as a young woman who escapes into that dreamworld and embarks on a quest to prevent herself from being lobotomized. The stakes are high, and Browning as Babydoll seems up to the challenge.


We can go anywhere

Once we're in a dream world, we can go pretty much anywhere—such as, startlingly, directly underneath the ringed planet Saturn.


A fire-breathing dragon

And that includes dragons!


We've got Samurai

Who doesn't love samurai?


Girls with Guns

Or girls with guns?


Zeppelins

Now toss in a steampunk zeppelin, and the movie's got pretty much everything we want. Except for one thing ...


The one thing we DON'T like—the release date!

We have to wait until March 2011 for this? Come ON!


Now that you know what WE like, watch it yourself and tell us what YOU like!
