Sucker Punch Opens This Thursday!

Posted by on Mar 22, 2011

So I’m pretty sure we haven’t talked about it on NNAR , but Wade and I have discussed Sucker Punch at great length. This is a movie that all people should be wildly excited for… okay, maybe not all people, but all true lovers of movies, comic books and the like.

First off, if you haven’t seen the trailer yet, a little indoctrination:

Excited yet? I thought so. Let me count the reasons:

  1. It’s directed by Zach Snyder, who has shown a particular aptitude for creating fantastically stylized movies out of comic book stories. While this isn’t a comic book since Snyder wrote it himself, I think it fits the genre.
  2. The aforementioned Snyder has described this movie as “Alice in Wonderland with machine guns”… nuff said
  3. In the trailer above, I saw samurai, robots, dragons, WWII trenches, and biplanes… Add guns, put in a stylized environment, and I think you’re looking at an incredibly fun movie outing.

Are you as excited for Sucker Punch as we are?  More?  Be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments.

  • So very excited.
