New Sucker Punch Trailer Blasts The Led Zeppelin
To say that I was floored by the footage of Sucker Punch shown at this year's Comic Con would be an understatement. Though it was nearly impossible to recap everything I saw because of it's fast pace and incredible amount of content, it absolutely took my breath away. One aspect that I truly loved about it, however, was the use of "When the Levee Breaks" by Led Zeppelin. Sadly, director Zack Snyder told the audience that it would be unlikely that the song would be used for the film's official trailer because of rights issues. This was confirmed a few days later when the teaser trailer showed up online. Fortunately, something changed and now the song is back.
Apple has premiered the first feature trailer for Snyder's first original film and while the song sadly doesn't play for the entire length of the trailer, it's impressive how much it elevates the sequence in which its heard (not to hate on "Panic Switch" by Silversun Pickups, but this is Led Zeppelin we're taking here). The new trailer also does a much better job of explaining the film's plot, rather than simply showing off the visuals, impressive as they may be. It's also good to know that Scott Glenn has an extended role in the film beyond some guy that they go to for advice on their journey. Really, the only question I have left is why they are going to such great lengths to hide Jon Hamm?
