Easily one of the most hotly anticipated films to debut this month, Zack Snyder’s “SUCKER PUNCH” looks to channel a little bit of “PANS LABYRINTH”, mixed with a very healthy heaping of steam punk and blow our freakin’ heads off. With designs by legendary cult artist Alex Pardee, the film has been on many peoples’ radars for awhile, especially genre fans. However, for those of you who haven’t been keeping up, did you know that there were zombies? Yea…we didn’t either. However, according to the all new animated short that has just gone live that is the case, and you can take a look at the short in all of its glory if you make the jump. Read on for the skinny!
“Set in the 1950s in the vivid imagination of a young girl placed at a mental institution by her step-father some time after her mother died, with only her dreams providing 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, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary.
She has been locked away against her will, but Babydoll (Emily Browning) has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls—the outspoken Rocket (Jena Malone), the street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), the fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung) and the reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish)—to band together and try to escape their terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue (Oscar Isaac), Madam Gorski (Carla Gugino) and the High Roller (Jon Hamm).”
