We've been hot to see Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch ever since we first caught the film's trailer back at San Diego Comic-Con. So as far as we're concerned, any news about the movie is good news—like Warner Brothers' newly released official synopsis.
We don't think there's anything spoilery here, so it's probably safe to read on—unless you're one of those who want to see Sucker Punch completely cold.
Here's how Warner Brothers is marketing the new film:
Sucker Punch is an epic action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, but her incredible adventures blur the lines between what's real and what is imaginary ... with potentially tragic consequences.
Born from the creative vision of filmmaker Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300), Sucker Punch features an ensemble cast of young stars, including Emily Browning (The Uninvited), Abbie Cornish (Bright Star), Jena Malone (Into the Wild), Vanessa Hudgens (the High School Musical films) and Jamie Chung (Sorority Row). The film's main cast also includes Oscar Isaac (Robin Hood) and Carla Gugino (Watchmen), with Jon Hamm (upcoming The Town, TV's Mad Men) and Scott Glenn (The Bourne Ultimatum).
Zack Snyder is directing Sucker Punch from a screenplay he wrote with Steve Shibuya, based on Snyder's story. Snyder and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Thomas Tull, Wesley Coller, Jon Jashni, Chris deFaria, Jim Rowe and William Fay serving as executive producers.
The behind-the-scenes creative team includes Academy Award®-winning production designer Rick Carter (Avatar) and Watchmen and 300 veterans director of photography Larry Fong, editor William Hoy and costume designer Michael Wilkinson. The music is by Tyler Bates and Marius DeVries.
Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Legendary Pictures, a Cruel and Unusual Production of a Zack Snyder film, Sucker Punch. Opening nationwide on March 25, 2011, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
