Sucker Punch, the new film by 300 and Watchmen director Zack Snyder, will be released tomorrow at Nu Metro cinemas and on Friday at Ster-Kinekor. To coincide with the release, I have posted a clip showing the first 5 minutes of the film. See the full video after the jump.
Synopsis (via IMDB):
An action fantasy set in 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 (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). 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 (Scott Glenn), their unbelievable journey -- if they succeed -- will set them free
These "First 5 minutes of..." clips have become very popular with film studios lately because it's another method of promoting their product. That being said, I never watch any of them because they do tend to be mildly spoilerish at times and I'd rather go into a film knowing as little as possible about it, especially if it's a film that I'm really looking forward to like Sucker Punch. So, no, I haven't watched this clip and I therefore can't comment on how good or bad it is.
What do you think of the clip? Does it make you more, or less excited to see the film?
