Sucker Punch is the first movie Zack Synder has worked on that is not based on existing material. Set in 1950s, Synder’s steampunk sci-fi flick follows the story of Baby Doll (Emily Browning) who has been imprisoned in a mental institution by her villainous stepfather. With a lobotomy scheduled in five days, Baby Doll imagines an alternative reality where she needs to steal five objects to escape captivity.
Fresh from Comic-Con comes a set of delectable posters for Sucker Punch complete with school girl outfits, bust-enhancing corsets, fishnets, guns, and mecha. We’re sold already. Check out the sexy posters after the jump.
The cast is thus: Amber (Jamie Chung), Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), Rocket (Jena Malone), Sweetpea (Abbie Cornish), and Baby Doll (Emily Browning). Mad Men’s Jon Hamm and Carla Gugino from Watchmen are set to take part in what looks to be an awesome shoot ’em up. Sucker Punch is set for release on March 25th, 2011.
