Zack Snyder delivers a SUCKER PUNCH; new trailer online

One of the unexpected highlights of San Diego Comic-Con this year was the SUCKER PUNCH panel. Sandwiched in with GREEN LANTERN and HARRY POTTER: THE DEATHLY HALLOWS, it could have very easily been overshadowed, but they had footage and panel members that blew the other Warner Bros. films out of the water. And now, the full-length trailer is online for the whole world to see!

SUCKER PUNCH, directed by Zack Snyder (300, WATCHMEN), follows a young girl who is institutionalized by her stepfather. She retreats to an alternative reality as a coping mechanism, where she envisions a plan which will help her escape from the facility. It stars relatively unproven actresses such as Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, and Jamie Chung. The biggest names attached are Jena Malone (indie darling, with previous roles in SAVED! and DONNIE DARKO) and Vanessa Hudgens (former Disney teen queen).

While a shorter version was released months ago, catch the first full-length trailer after the break.

This reveals more of the plot and I'm completely intrigued to see how this adventure in the mind plays out. The visuals are arresting, in that distinct Zack Snyder fashion. Visually, this will be a hit. We'll have to wait until its March release to see if the story lives up to it.
