Sucker Punch Synopsis

Close your eyes. Open your mind. You will be unprepared. Sucker Punch is an epic action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what痴 real and what is imaginary.

She has been locked away against her will, but Babydoll (Emily Browning) has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls葉he outspoken Rocket (Jena Malone), the street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), the fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung) and the reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish)葉o band together and try to escape their terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue (Oscar Isaac), Madam Gorski (Carla Gugino) and the High Roller (Jon Hamm).

Led by Babydoll, the girls engage in fantastical warfare against everything from samurais to serpents, with a virtual arsenal at their disposal. Together, they must decide what they are willing to sacrifice in order to stay alive. But with the help of a Wise Man (Scott Glenn), their unbelievable journey擁f they succeed謡ill set them free.

The 10 Most Disappointing Movies Of 2011 The 10 Most Disappointing Movies Of 2011
There were plenty of movies from this year that I absolutely loved and others that I absolutely hated, but there痴 a very special category that exists between both of those ends: the ones that left me utterly disappointed. While I always enter a movie theater hoping to love the hell out of whatever I知 watching, the truth is that there are some films that I spend a lot of time thinking about and anticipating, only to be left frustrated at the end.

Jamie Chung Moving From Hangover Sequel To Human Trafficking Drama Eden Jamie Chung Moving From Hangover Sequel To Human Trafficking Drama Eden
Chung has signed on to headline Megan Griffiths gritty independent drama Eden. Though the title hints at paradise, the plot suggests anything but, as Chung would play a girl kidnapped by human traffickers who is forced into prostitution for two very long years.

Sucker Punch Puts Up Its Dukes On Blu-Ray This June Sucker Punch Puts Up Its Dukes On Blu-Ray This June
Fans of sound and fury, signifying nothing, mark your calendars for June 28. That's the date Warner Home Video has set to release Zack Snyder's cinematic train wreck known as Sucker Punch as a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, Blu-ray, and a standard DVD. And while you won't actually get a coherent or interesting story in exchange for your hard-earned cash, I'm sure it'll look grand in high-definition.

Once he's done with the Man of Steel, I'm dying to see Snyder handed $30 million and a shopping mail again, to prove he's still a director who knows how to get out of his own way, who knows his great talents are sometimes even better when we don't see quite so much of them.

Unless you are a completely diluted, self-centered individual, you understand that you need others to help you survive in this world, whether it痴 just getting by in your day-to-day life or trying to escape a mental hospital. So when Babydoll (Emily Browning) plans the latter, she doesn稚 try to go it herself, and enlists the help of Amber (Jamie Chung), Rocket (Jena Malone) and Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens) to help her.

Feel Sympathy For The Stormtrooper With This New Animated Sucker Punch Short Feel Sympathy For The Stormtrooper With This New Animated Sucker Punch Short
When talking about Star Wars - which I love to do - one of my favorite debates is in regard to the innocence of stormtroopers. On the one hand they are henchmen working for what many consider to be an evil organization, but on the other they can simply be seen as government employees who are just trying to do their job and don't deserve to be blown up along with the Death Star.
