Comic-Con 2010: Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch

Sucker Punch, the title of Watchmen‘s Zack Snyder’s newest upcoming film, was a surprise hit in my Comic-Con 2010 itinerary diary.  I immensely enjoyed the trailer, which was played two times for us.  It looked like a cross between a mythical/fantasy adventure and 300, with women in the starring role.  And what would Sucker Punch be without the female cast?  The trailer really took my breath away.  My wife did not particularly care for the fantasy aspect of it (dragons and all), but I say bring it on Mr. Snyder!  Bring it on! The movie’s ensemble female cast includes Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Vanessa Hudgens, Carla Gugino, Jena Malone and Jamie Chung (Sorority Row).  Warner Brothers’ Sucker Punch will be unleashed in theaters and in IMAX 3-D March 25, 2011.  Don’t miss it!  In the meantime, don’t miss some of the below photos I snapped from the press pit  either.

The famous director was kneeling right in front of me during the trailer.

    I’m so in for this. I’ll see it in regular theaters since it wasn’t shot in IMAX, it makes no sense to see it in that format.

    Yes it does! You are seeing the movie on the biggest screen possible! Plus IMAX has a great sound system. I’m against their greedy ticket prices but you have to admit they do provide the best movie experience around. I’m going to see Inception tonight on an IMAX screen. Sucker Punch will either be really good or terrible. I don’t see a middle ground for this movie.

    It doesn’t matter if it’s the biggest screen. Since it wasn’t shot in IMAX it will NOT fill up the entire the screen. It will still be a 2.35:1 image but you’ll see that the top and bottom are cut off. We saw Watchmen on a REAL IMAX screen (the 6 story screen) and it looked and sounded great, but was shrunk up to fit the IMAX screen. It’s a placebo thing.

    Even if it wasn’t filmed in the IMAX format it’s still better than watching in a regular theater. I’m not disagreeing with you that it would be better if it was filmed in IMAX but it still beats average theaters even if it doesn’t fill up a 6 story screen. It’s just unfortunate that IMAX still charges that much for movies that weren’t filmed in IMAX.

    It doesn’t justify the price, in my opinion.

    That’s the whole of IMAX. To see the film projected in full on that 6 story screen. I also don’t follow those IMAX “lite” screens either. That’s another rip-off. There is only one IMAX screen and that’s the 6 story one.

    I get what you are saying but even if it fills half of an IMAX screen, that’s still a 100 times better than an average screen. I am totally in agreement with you on the IMAX lite screens and the fact that they charge the same amount as the real IMAX screens is crooked. I also agree that the prices are too high in general and the IMAX theater in Sacramento needs to replace their old uncomfortable chairs.

    Vanessa Hudgens is absolutely gorgeous in person.
