April 1 2011. That’s the day Sucker Punch hits cinemas in the UK. Have you seen the trailer? Above is the trailer. Watch it. Then continue…
Tell us you don’t think that’s a good trailer and we’ll say to you: “No, actually, that is a good trailer. Here are some reasons why it’s a good trailer (in order of appearance in the trailer): 1/ Dead people 2/ Violent blonde lady 3/ Led Zeppelin 4/ Mental asylum 5/ A not-sure-this-is-like-real-life number of attractive ladies inside the mental asylum 6/ Eastern European Angelina-Jolie-in-20-years lookalike 7/ Sudden transformation into an alternative reality 8/ Fire 9/ Snow 10/ A small army (a battalion or a platoon, perhaps) of female fighters 11/ Weapons 12/ A wise old man 13/ A big robot monster thing with a machine gun and 14/ A dragon and it’s only two minutes and 19 seconds long.”
And you won’t know how to respond to that because basically we’re making a good point.
But listen. The trailer is old news. What we’re here to talk about the new Sucker Punch banner poster. Yeah, banner poster. "Yeah, yeah. No, no, no. Yeah." They’re making a lot of posters for this, are the Sucker Punch people. Presumably because they realise that websites like this one will almost always say words like “yes, okay” when confronted with the question “would you like to publish some pictures of attractive females dressed up all fighty and scary?” And there you have it and here it is and really that’s all there is to say about this.
Witness: Babydoll (Emily Browning), Amber (Jamie Chung), Sweetpea (Abbie Cornish), Rocket (Jena Malone), Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), Madame Gorsky (Carla Gugino).
