Artwork for Zack Snyder’s ‘Sucker Punch’ Revealed


While at Comic Con, director Zack Snyder is in attendance for a screening of the director’s cut of Watchmen, which was simultaneously streamed to Blu-ray users utilizing the BD-Live service, but one thing those watching at home didn’t get was a t-shirt sporting the first piece of artwork for Snyder’s upcoming “girls with machineguns” feature Sucker Punch.

Photos of the shirt began circulating the Internet, but now Alex Pardee, the artist responsible for the artwork has posted an actual image of the piece and not a shoddy picture of a t-shirt. Unfortunately, in his post at his official website he doesn’t give any clues as to what the imagery means in relation to the feature, but he does give something of a new synopsis:

Set in the 1950s, SuckerPunch follows Babydoll (Emily Browning) who is confined to a mental institution by her stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. While there, she imagines an alternative reality to hide her from the pain, and in that world, she begins planning her escape, needing to steal five objects to help get her out before she is deflowered by a vile man.

Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Jamie Chung and Jena Malone co-star in the film, targeted for a March 25, 2011 release.

Now, for the art:
