Zack Snyder is a director who, in my mind, has always done a better job of making movies that are more visually interesting than anything else. I realize I could be opening myself up to fanboy rage here, but in The Watchmen, the beautifully choreographed opening sequence was the best part of the movie. The 300 definitely had a unique style to it, but the story was bare bones and it left me wondering what the hype was all about.
Hopefully that wil change with Sucker Punch, because the idea of a girl in a mental institution entering an alternate reality in order to hatch an escape plan has promise. In this week's links, we have the first Sucker Punch trailer, along with some NFL rookies being hazed like fraternity pledges and two completely insane videos from opposite sides of the world.
- FilmDrunk has the first trailer for Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch, which looks pretty cool. However the real winner this week is the trailer for Who Killed Captain Alex, the first Ugandan action movie.
