The teaser for Zack Synder's latest, Sucker Punch had is auspicious debut last weekend at Comic-Con. I don't know what to make of this at all. I'm intrigued by the cast-- Jena Malone, Abbie Cornish, Carla Gugino, Jon Hamm, and newcomer Emily Browning (a rumored choice for David Fincher's upcoming American remake of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo)-- but what the hell is this supposed to be. I'm fine with the women kicking ass premise, but what's with the dragons and stuff, and the resorting back to 300-style visual palette. I thought Watchmen was a hopeful step towards some kind of maturity Mr. Synder. Artisan or hack, I can't decide.
