Zack Snyder was recently the subject of scrutiny because of the ALWAYS troubled Superman production in addition to poor early test screenings of his new film Sucker Punch. But you know what I say? FUCK THAT SHIT.
Not only did those "early test screenings" take place months ago, but those who came down hard on the man who brought us 300 and Watchmen failed to recognize the fact that hundreds of ultimately good films are met with harsh criticism during test screenings. This isn't an isolated incident. Snyder has more than likely taken all the necessary steps to re-cut his sprawling epic and right whatever wrongs were uncovered from those initial audience reactions. From the look of the new trailer for the film, which stars Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Jamie Chung and Vanessa Hudgens, he's on top of the situation. True, there's no dialogue or genuine storytelling in this newly released footage and a lot of it has been seen before. It's really the child of a glorified sizzle reel and a Nine Inch Nails music video, but that's good enough for me.
This is a balls-out (or perhaps boobs-out) action experience and I've got no doubt that Snyder will deliver the goods next month. Have a look at the new trailer below.
