Buzz surrounding Sucker Punch hasn’t been favorable. Much of this seems based on the trailers since I don’t believe anyone has actually seen the film yet. Hell, I don’t even see it until 10 PM, 24 hours before it’s being released (not a good sign). However, buzz and press screenings aside, I can’t help but get something of a dirty feeling when I take a look at the batch of 48 new images from the film I just received, two of which I’ve included here.
The image of an innocent Emily Browning in her pink tank top above. Appearing as a porcelain doll, trapped behind bars on her bed. The image of Vanessa Hudgens below in a bustier and fishnet stockings with her big doe eyes and pouty appearance. I know both actresses are 22-years-old, which means Richard Roeper is probably calling them up and asking for a date, but I can’t help but feel screenings of Sucker Punch will be filled with dirty old men, sitting in the back row pulling a Paul Reubens.
When Sucker Punch was first announced writer/director Zack Snyder described it as “Alice in Wonderland with machine guns.” What he forgot to add is Alice and her clones would be half-naked throughout the adventure and trust me, there is more where these two pictures came from. Just click here and browse the gallery.
Sucker Punch hits theaters on March 25, a weekend I can only assume much of the male audience this film is probably geared toward will be at home watching the NCAA tournament, which is strangely ironic given Sucker Punch is advertising all over CBS’s tournament brackets.
