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 »
The have been a couple crazy rumors in the last 24 hours. Yesterday E! reported that Universal has met with Kristen Stewart to possibly star in Wanted 2. This morning MTV UK is reporting a wacky rumor that High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens is in talks to play Spider-Woman in her own stand-alone movie based on the Marvel comic book.
MTV’s inside source claims that “The idea is for this to be a fun, comedic movie and Vanessa is perfect for the title role,” and that “Spider Woman is strong and sexy but in this case hilarious. Vanessa is apparently very interested in the idea.” This all sounds a bit too tabloid-ish to me, and I refuse to believe it until we see an announcement in the Hollywood trade papers.
That said, recently we learned that Marvel was looking to produce lower budget films ($20-$40 million) based on their third teir characters. Hudgens also has that Disney connection.

The impending existence of the film Beastly, a modern and teen-centric version of Beauty and the Beast, had escaped me until now. But with the power of the teen dollar once again having been reasserted over the weekend, it’s time to get the promotions cranking for films that might siphon off a bit of that cashflow. And so here’s a brief teaser for Beastly. Be afraid. Be very afraid. 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 »
