Sucker Punch

Sucker Punch is an upcoming movie directed and co-written by Zack Snyder to come out in 2011. I was first interested in the movie after seeing concept art for it, created by Alex Pardee.

The director for the movie described his upcoming feature as “Alice in Wonderland with machine guns.” The narrative focuses on a girl called Baby Doll whose evil step-father has sent her to a mental institution, where she drifts into a dream-like alternate reality. A lot of the focus on this movie seems to be about the protagonists struggle with her imaginary world and reality and how the two eventually blur. I believe Snyder referenced Alice in Wonderland because of Baby Doll’s fantasy world which may or may not be reality.
