    YouTube - Sucker Punch - Official Trailer 2 [HD]

    I find myself hard pressed to describe this without using the phrase 'Live Action Anime'.

    From wikipedia

    Our stars from left to right: Emily Browning (Baby Doll), Vanessa Hudgens (Blondie), Abbie Cornish (Sweet Pea), Jamie Chung (Amber) and Jena Malone (Rocket).

    So what say you members of TFW2005, has Zack lost his mind or has he succeeded in translating anime concepts into a workable western movie formula. I for one want to check this out because, well....

    Honestly, I can't help that my first reaction to the trailer is that this just looks stupid. I donno why.

    Maybe because it just looks like all flash and no bang. Maybe it's because what is suppose to be the real world in the film looks just as made up as the imaginary world. Maybe if the girls in the asylum didn't all look like super models, the contrast would work better. It just all looks like nothing but eye candy. And I like eye candy, but there needs to be some taste to go along with that candy. This just doesn't look like it has any taste.

    I'm surprised there wasn't a thread about this sooner.

    Will definitely check this out, just for the promise of everything awesome crammed into one movie, and that it's by Zack freakin' Snyder.

    Yeah, something about the trailer just doesn't work for me. Looks like a triumph of style over substance. The effects are good and the cinematography is pretty, but the whole affair just indulges itself in too many ridiculously juvenile male fantasy elements to be taken seriously. It seems fairly trite and superficial, and yet appears to have pretensions like there's depth and meaning to it all.

    You're probably right, I'd be willing to see the movie in case ol' Zack has a surprise in store for us and actually underpins a solid narrative to this orgasm of titties and mecha.

    Given it's the guy who did Watchmen and 300, that's probably right on the money.

    Oh I don't disagree that will make the meat of this sammich, but it would be nice to see somone make something that is both visually engaging and has a good story to deliver said visuals. Like adding a nice pepper sauce to a juicy steak.......

    ......now I want steak.

    After the first trailer, I was super psyched for this. However, the recent TV spots have really begun turning me off of the movie. Just haven't liked what I have been seeing lately.

    I haven't seen any of the recent tv spots. It's still on my radar, but not anything that I'm super excited for and I have to see opening week. I think I'll see it, but whether or not it's in the theater is still in question.

    I'm fully intending seeing this, but only because it will be a totally vacuous couple of hours :lol

    That's what I was thinking. I can't judge the story yet, but I would have been more interested if the girls were a little less on the super model variety. It's a known fact that chubby girls have problems to.

    Still, I probably just don't fall in it's demographic and hope it turns out good for those that do.
