PRESS STATEMENT FROM WARNER BROS:
"Born from the creative vision of filmmaker Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300), Warner Bros. Pictures presents the action-adventure Sucker Punch, a mind-bending vision of reality that audiences will be unprepared to witness.
"The film features an ensemble cast of young stars, including Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung. The film’s main cast also includes Oscar Isaac and Carla Gugino, with Jon Hamm and Scott Glenn.
"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 (Browning) has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls-the outspoken Rocket (Malone), the street-smart Blondie (Hudgens), the fiercely loyal Amber (Chung) and the reluctant Sweet Pea (Cornish)--to band together and try to escape their terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue (Isaac), Madam Gorski (Gugino) and the High Roller (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 (Glenn), their unbelievable journey--if they succeed--will set them free.
"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.
"Opening worldwide beginning March 25, 2011, Sucker Punch is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company."
