Occur within the dreary, CG-heightened 1950s, Sucker Punch is approximately a female protagonist named Babydoll (Emily Browning, who replaced Amanda Seyfried within the role) who retreats right into a fantasy world to flee hard truth: that in only days, her evil stepdad will have her lobotomized.
Based on the trailer, Babydoll's "real" planet is really a dark and gloomy mental hospital in Brattleboro, Vermont, the place where a Polish-accented Carla Gugino tells her in voice-over that she can escape into her fantasy world. "What you're imagining right now," she purrs, "that place is as actual just like any pain."
With Gugino's encouragement, Babydoll intends to escape -- and she or he takes her hot fellow mentally insane patients (Abbie Cornish, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens) along with her into...
... a fantasy globe in which the girls, interrupted reside in a brothel as glamorous burlesque performers. You'd think that couldn't survive so poor, but then they apparently need to leave this fabulous brothel destination for a complete numerous motion movie tasks, designed with big guns, B-52 bombers, fighting techinques skills, samurai swords, and knives as sharp as their skirts are short. Via a number of tasked challenges, this guitar rock band of deadly teenagers will ostensibly earn some kind of "freedom" -- and now we the audience will be around the receiving end of some cinematic sucker punch we never saw coming.
Somewhere in this awesomeness, you will have musical numbers. Elaborate, glitzy, cabaret-style musical numbers serving up song and dance alongside everything action and killing. Stylized trench warfare and burlesque -- two excellent tastes that taste fantastic together?
Let's take particular notice on the characters of Sucker Punch, as dreamily (or nightmarishly?) conceptualized by photographer Clay Enos in the initial batch of character posters. Each individual piece depicts a different Sucker Punch lady and, presumably, her respective signature outfit and weapons of choice -- combined with the specific setting which could prove significant for her inside the film.
Emily Browning as Babydoll is a schoolgirl vision in blonde pigtails plus a sassy stare who wields a pistol in one hand plus a samurai sword within the other. Snow falls around her as she stands facing a pagoda, suggesting her large challenge should come fighting the massive samurais we have seen within the trailer.
Abbie Cornish's Sweetpea evokes medieval maiden by having an edge -- a pantless, armored dragon slayer shown using a castle in the background.
Amber, played by Jamie Chung, is apparently a WWII-era fly gal who likes lollipops, wears chaps, maybe flies a B-52 bomber and fights having a massive robot. A robot having a bunny face.
Vanessa Hudgens as Blondie isn't blonde. She does, nevertheless, wear a slick, slightly much more updated outfit that somewhat resembles a ninja cowgirl. And also the gun. She's got a huge, big gun. One thing here's clear: Hudgens says so long to her Senior high school Musical days.
Jena Malone's Rocket is harder to read, but she does hold a knife at her side, which promises stabby action. Also, fishnets. Her scene happens on an alien planet having a helicopter.
