We know Sucker Punch is on the fringe of horror at best, but it’s one of our most anticipated films of the year, and damnit, the marketing campaign is too damn cool to ignore. For instance, check out these five new WWII style retro posters that recently hit the Net.
Russian site Kino Gallery revealed the vintage character posters you’ll see below. Look for the film in theatres on March 25, 2011, from Warner Bros. Pictures.
Close your eyes. Open your mind. You will be unprepared.
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 (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.
Born from the creative vision of filmmaker Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300), Sucker Punch features an ensemble cast of young stars, including Emily Browning (The Uninvited), Abbie Cornish (Bright Star), Jena Malone (Into the Wild), Vanessa Hudgens (the High School Musical films), and Jamie Chung (Sorority Row). The film’s main cast also includes Oscar Isaac (Robin Hood) and Carla Gugino (Watchmen) with Jon Hamm (The Town, TV’s “Mad Men”) and Scott Glenn (The Bourne Ultimatum).
Zack Snyder directed Sucker Punch from a screenplay he wrote with Steve Shibuya, based on Snyder’s story. Snyder and Deborah Snyder produced with Thomas Tull, Wesley Coller, Jon Jashni, Chris deFaria, Jim Rowe, and William Fay serving as executive producers. The behind-the-scenes creative team includes Academy Award®-winning production designer Rick Carter (Avatar) and Watchmen and 300 veterans director of photography Larry Fong, editor William Hoy, and costume designer Michael Wilkinson. The music is by Tyler Bates and Marius DeVries.
