Robin Wright has an increasingly promising slate of films coming up: she’s in Robert Redford’s The Conspirator (in the title role) and is shooting a part in Moneyball, where she’ll play the ex-wife of Billy Beane, played by Brad Pitt.
And now she’s in talks to work with David Fincher in his new version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which was recently confirmed to star Daniel Craig and may also feature Stellan Skarsgård. Read More »

If you weren’t at Comic-Con this weekend, then you probably still heard the insane buzz coming out of Warner Bros’ panel for Zack Snyder‘s next film Sucker Punch. The promo reel which screened at the presentation was almost indescribable, a combination of anime and video game-like imagery, but on crack, and shot in the visually intense style we’ve become use to from Snyder. You can watch the video blog we recorded in Hall H by clicking here. Warner Bros is riding the buzz and has launched the first official movie trailer online today. Watch it now, embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

A couple weeks back we posted the first photo from Zack Snyder‘s Sucker Punch. Last week, I posted some props and maquettes (giving us a better look at our group of girl heros, a World War I masked zombie solider, and a mech suit featuring a pink bunny) and the first set of character banners. On Sunday, I spotted a new poster for the film on the Comic-Con show floor. Check out the full poster, after the jump.

Last week we posted the first photo from Zack Snyder‘s Sucker Punch. Last night I posted some props and maquettes on display from the film spotted on the Comic-Con show floor (giving us a better look at our group of girl heros, a World War I masked zombie solider, and a mech suit featuring a pink bunny). Today Warner Bros has released a bunch of character banners, giving us an even better look at the characters in the film. Hit the jump to see them now.

The Entertainment Weekly Comic Con preview issue is starting to make its way out into the world and onto the beds of scanners everywhere. There were a half dozen Green Lantern photos from the mag yesterday, and today there’s the first real image from Zack Snyder‘s Sucker Punch.
Here you can see (l-r) Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Emily Browning, Scott Glenn, Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung. The film follows Emily Browning’s character, Babydoll, who is confined to a mental institution from which she fantastizes an alternate reality. Browning and the other girls seen here are all wards of the institution, and this shot is part of the fantasy reality, in which Browning is trying to find a handful of objects that will allow her to escape.
Snyder has said many times that the film will be a dark, violent fantasty full of guns, action and monsters, and this photo certainly suggests that he wasn’t exaggerating. We’ll know more when we see footage at Comic Con next week. Read More »
While promoting Sorority Row, actress Jamie Chung has been talking about Zack Snyder‘s upcoming film Sucker Punch, in which she is featured alongside Emily Browning, Jenna Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish and supporting players Carla Gugino and Jon Hamm. We know a few things about the film: Browning plays Baby Doll, a girl confined to a mental institution by her stepfather. She escapes into outlandish, violent fantasy to deal with her predicament. Chung gets a bit more specific, though, and her comments follow the break. Are they spoilers? Not really, if you’ve been reading what we’ve covered so far. Read More »
Zack Snyder has lost two more Sucker Punch cast members: Evan Rachel Wood and Emma Stone have both dropped out due to “scheduling conflicts”. This comes one month after it was announced that the film’s lead Amanda Seyfried was forced to leave the project, also due to “scheduling conflicts”. Am I the only person that finds it strange that half of the announced cast have been forced to drop out due the scheduling issues? The cast was announced before Watchmen‘s underperformed at the box office. And while I have absolutely no proof what-so-ever that the events are connected, my gut is telling me that they are.
Seyfried, star of Big Love, Mamma Mia, and Mean Girls was replaced with Emily Browning, whose credits top out with a bunch of crappy horror flicks (The Uninvited, Standed, Darkness Falls, Ghost Ship). And tonight Stone and Wood’s replacements were announced: Jamie Chung (Dragonball Evolution) and Jenna Malone (Into The Wild, Donnie Darko). Malone is a great catch. She’s definitely a talented and underused actress but it’s hard not to see a pattern: Warner Bros is trading down, casting considerably lesser known actresses which most likely will save them considerable cash on the budget side. Could it be that Warner Bros is concerned about the profitability of Snyder’s R-Rated $100 million fantasy film?

EW’s Hollywood Insider tells us that Emily Browning will be taking the lead role of Baby Doll in Zack Snyder‘s Sucker Punch from Amanda Seyfried. This news immediately struck me as I had idly considered Browning a good option for the lead in Tim Burton’s currently-in-post Alice in Wonderland sequel/subversion and Snyder has made the Alice connections in Sucker Punch clear.
You will most likely recall Browning from her star turn in the Lemony Snicket picture and, more recently, The Uninvited. I’m curious as to why she hasn’t been getting more roles – her studies, perhaps? – but if she’s somehow wanting for opportunities, a collaboration with Snyder is likely to get her meetings at the very least. I’m definitely interested in seeing what sort of fist she can make out of this one. A good sock to the chops, please, Ms. Browning.
