Right, next year the director of Watchmen and 300 has a new project. This one is Sucker Punch and IMDB has the following very short statement concerning the plot:
A young girl is institutionalized by her wicked stepfather. Retreating to an alternative reality as a coping strategy, she envisions a plan which will help her escape from the facility.
The movie has also been discribed as
Alice in Wonderland with Machine Guns
I think it is a whole lot more. Judging from the trailer:
and the imagery on the official website, it is Alice in Wonderland avec Dieselpunk. It’s got triplanes, Zeppelins with Iron Crosses as markings, those soldiers on the website look like slightly nightmarish versions of German World War I soldiers, the girls are toting guns, there’s a giant Samurai-robot and a dragon for good measure (OK, the latter breaks the Dieselpunk-symmetry I have to say…).
Also, look at the official posters:
Do they not look very Dieselpunk in deed, especially the right one? All things considered, Sucker Punch looks like a movie to look forward to. Thus far, I am quite impressed.
