Here are some people wot are in Sucker Punch

Tuesday July 20th 2010


The new issue of pop culture bible Entertainment Weekly just ‘hits the stands’ in the States (as well as a few of the fancier newsagents in Central London) and it’s rammed full of previews in honour of this week’s annual San Diego Comic-Con.

Above you can see the first official photo from Zack Snyder’s forthcoming violent fantasy thing Sucker Punch, which features a largely female cast and is set in some kind of semi-hallucinated 50s mental institution. As you / might / remember, I’m not the biggest fan of ‘first official photos’ but I thought this one was worth posting because only yesterday I was bemoaning the absence of Jena Malone in 2010’s Hollywood, and today here she is: slap bang in the middle of one of the most hyped movies going. Nice to see Abbie Cornish and Emily Browning finally punching their way into the A-list too.

Say what you like about Zach Snyder, but he can pull just about any old fucker out of obscurity.
