Zack Snyder has been a busy man. Not only does the master of slow motion and green screens have the CGI-owl extravaganza Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole (we all know how excited we were to hear they were making that into a movie), but now the trailer for his upcoming Sucker Punch has hit the internet.
The film’s been described by Snyder as “Alice in Wonderland with machine guns”, and it apparently follows one young blond girl as she tries to escape from a mental institution before being lobotomized. None of this is clear from the trailer, which features guns, swords, dragons, Nazis, exotic dancers, and of course a giant samurai with a chain gun.
I’m not sure how excited I am for this. I really enjoyed Snyder’s remake of Dawn of the Dead, was pleasantly surprised by 300, and thought Watchmen was a mixed bag. Either way, it sure looks like this one has a lot for nerds to look forward too.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to figure out what the fuck Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole is.
