Zack Snyder seems to be one of those directors that you either love or hate. After 300 and Watchmen, Sucker Punch is an all original story co-written and helmed by Snyder. The synopsis:

A hyper-violent spin on Alice in Wonderland for his directorial follow-up to Watchmen with this Cruel and Unusual Films production for Warner Bros. The plot details the action-packed fantasy world of a mental patient (Emily Browning), who escapes from her reality to deal with her abusive stepfather.

I’ll say this, the trailer is visually interesting.

Chicks in mini-skirts: Check.

Full on Samurai warriors: Check.

Apparently takes place on another planet: Check.

Kung fu action: Check.

Flaming dragon: Check!

Dirigible destruction: Check.

Giant Japanese mech with gatling gun for an arm: Dear lord check!

The elements appear to be there but there seems to be something missing. The trailer doesn’t instill a ‘must see’ feeling. Maybe the full trailer will fix that.
