The word from Comic-Con was that Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch, while difficult to explain, was one of the more stunning highlights of a quality overall showing. The posters we showed you mere days ago were hot, wet and on fire. Cole Abaius’ report from the Hall H panel talked about a some of the strongest female characters we’ve seen on screen in a while. It all sounds like a wild Kill Bill-esque ride through the visually supercharged mind of director Zack Snyder. Nothing about that seems underwhelming. At least not to me. Today brings us the first bit of bonafide proof that Sucker Punch is going to be off-the-rails, both visually and conceptually. It’s a trailer that features badass ladies, burlesque musical numbers, dragons, samurais and suits of armor. As Cole said in his report, it’s breath-taking. And it awaits you after the jump.



Our Comic-Con 2010 coverage is in full swing, and while the gents on the ground in San Diego continue to bring you their assessment of what’s happening in and around Hall H, I’ve got the lovely task of keeping up with all of the hot materials being released by studios. This means trailers, posters and hot breaking news. This little update is red hot — a set of character posters for Zack Snyder’s stylish, sexy actioner Sucker Punch. If you remember, we showed you the first photo last week. Now we’ve got individual looks at each of the film’s dangerous ladies — and you’ll be hard pressed to be able to take your eyes off of them. Check them out after the jump… Click here for more from Comic-Con 2010



The upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly, their yearly look at Comic-Con, has drawn a lot of attention even before hitting news stands, as it is showing off some of the hot geek properties that will grace the stages of the San Diego Convention Center next week. Yesterday it was a first look at Green Lantern. Today we get a look at the cast of Zack Snyder‘s girl-power shoot ‘em up Sucker Punch. It’s got sexy and dangerous visions of Emily Browning, Jena Malone, Abbie Cornish, Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung. And as an exclamation point on the whole affair, Scott Glenn as a Nazi. Check out the full image after the jump.



It may just be me, but the first several moments of this brand new Legend of the Guardians trailer — the new animated film from director Zack Snyder — feels a lot like 300. Super slow-motion and angry warrior faces. All that’s missing is the voice of Gerard Butler screaming “This is Ga-HOOLE!” while one owl kicks the other one down a pit of despair. That doesn’t exactly happen, but some other cool stuff certainly does.



Jane Campion’s ‘Bright Star’ is an intensely romantic film that’s never trite or dated, despite its PG rating and early 19th century setting.



Snyder works to assemble an all-female cast for his upcoming Sucker Punch, an action fantasy set in the 1960s featuring crazy people.


Although the picture is occasionally compelling and has hints of honesty, the script by Pierce and co-writer Mark Richard is a one-way ticket to nowhere.


I am getting so tired of these movies about the war in Iraq. But Hollywood isn’t. And they are doing exactly what they’re accusing George W. Bush of doing – not listening to the American people. But like John Stewart pointed out at the Oscars, it’s Hollywood’s job to stay the course and keep making these movies. [Grade: C-]


I don’t know about you, but I’m getting tired of these war movies. If only I could have drank when I saw the movie. Everyone else does in the film, so why can’t you?
