Hey gang! Here's a nice batch of ten character portraits for Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch featuring the badass sexy girls that star in the film, Jon Hamm's character, and a couple of the creatures. Each image is accompanied by a little note.
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, 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 has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls—the reluctant Sweet Pea, the outspoken Rocket, the street-smart Blondie and the fiercely loyal Amber—to band together and try to escape a terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue and Madam Gorski, before the mysterious High Roller comes for Babydoll.
Led by Babydoll, the girls engage in fantastical warfare against everything from samurais to serpents, with a virtual arsenal at their disposal. Together, they must decide what they are willing to sacrifice in order to stay alive. But with the help of a Wise Man, their unbelievable journey—if they succeed—will set them free.
Snyder confirms that there was indeed one more sequence with the actor, excised from the final act in order to secure a PG-13 rating. What happens in the scene? He told us... but it would spoil wayyy too much. But yes, an R-rated director's-cut DVD is indeed in the works.
"The look of Babydoll was designed to be ''the personification of innocence and vulnerability.The women in the movie take control of the sexual trappings foisted upon them, even turn [that iconography] into their own weapons. The challenge was to confront the concept of exploitation of women without creating exploitative imagery. My approach was to shoot the action the way I'd shoot any kind of action in any film, whether the subject was male or female."
"Catchphrase: ''Eat lead, you ugly motherf---ers!'"
"Key line: ''I'm here to keep you from getting killed.'"
"Key Line: 'We weren't exactly the sweet little girls Mom wanted.'"
"Key line: 'Like it.'"
"Originally, there were just going to be 30 regular samurai guys. But then I thought: 'What if they were 10 feet tall, just to accentuate the height difference with Emily? And what if one of them had a machine gun? And what if every shell casing was engraved with awesomely ornate Japanese symbols that you can barely see, but are totally there if you squint? And what if...' It got more crazy-insane from there — and cooler, too."
"I'm interested in the theme of freedom — from guilt, pain, control. The fact that the movie is set in a prison — well, you're halfway there in terms of bringing that theme to life."
"The Wise Man. Key line: Don't ever write a check with your mouth that you can't cash with your ass."
"I had to find a way to kill these German soldiers without them being alive. I thought: What if they were, like, mechanized, and when you hit them, steam came out of them instead of blood? It's like the stormtroopers in Star Wars. There were people in those costumes, and they got mowed down left and right in those movies! I guess anonymity is the trick."
Sucker Punch is set to be released on March 25 in the US, and April 1 in the UK!
