While fans of a cinematic Batman are no stranger to effeminate Robins *cough*CHRIS O’DONNELL*cough*, it should come as little shock to anyone that the producers behind DC’s Batman V. Superman are looking to the fairer sex for their Robin. More specifically, the producers are looking to Jena Malone (The Hunger Games) to play the Boy Wonder. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, she’s the tough-as-nails tribute who gets naked in the elevator.

While Malone is a girl, she doesn’t much resemble the impish pixie archetype that we’ve come to associate with Robin, again, thanks to Chris O’Donnell, she does seem like she could hold her own in a gritty superhero film.

And, if she wants to get naked in this one, we would object less than if it were a previous Robin getting naked. Say, for argument’s sake, oh, I don’t know…Chris O’Donnell.

This news comes from an anonymous crew member who went on record to WILX, a news affiliate in Lansing, Michigan, where the film is currently shooting.

Review: Sucker Punch http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-sucker-punch/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-sucker-punch/#comments Thu, 24 Mar 2011 18:42:59 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=203444 It’s not asking us to make sense of some random minimalist montage.

Sucker Punch is a crazy movie, but it’s my kind of crazy. I think Zack Snyder just thought of the craziest things he wanted to see in a movie, so he did it. That’s what artists should do. Now it turns out to be some metaphorical fantasy and that’s cool too. It makes the film beautiful in addition to being awesome.

Baby Doll (Emily Browning) faces an evil stepfather in a haunting slo-mo, dialogue free opening. He commits her to the Lennox House institution after she fights him and accidentally kills her own sister. He’s also paid the Lennox House orderly off to have Baby lobotomized so she can’t tell her side of the story.

In the asylum’s “theater,” Dr. Gorsky (Carla Gugino) tries to socialize the girls. At one point, the theater becomes a dance studio, so is that the fantasy or is that Baby Doll waking up from the fantasy? In the dance class phase, Baby Doll meets other inmates Sweat Pea (Abbie Cornish), Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), Rocket (Jena Malone) and Amber (Jamie Chung).

When it’s Baby Doll’s turn to dance, the blink of her eye takes us into another world. How many layers is Snyder building here? It turns out every time Baby Doll dances, we see the wild action fantasy. There’s a Shaolin temple battle agains armored warrior giants, World War II trenches with zeppelins blowing up, a monster castle and a train filled with robots.

Why would you not want to see these scenes on their own? In Sucker Punch, we get those awesome scenes and they’re also symbolic and open to interpretation. The action is 300-y with impossible teamwork and comic book logic. Baby Doll can hurl a tube mile up in the air and then catch it later. The temple battle looks a little like a video game boss in CGI but the moves and camerawork are still beautiful. The other battles don’t even have the CGI problem.

I don’t think you’re supposed to take any level of this literally. The asylum puts on a nightclub where the inmates dance for customers. That’s crazy! The women wear super thick makeup, not for beauty but to completely exaggerate their faces.

This is the kind of movie I want to interpret. It’s not asking us to make sense of some random minimalist montage. It’s putting on a multi-million dollar show with no restrictions.

Can it? Maybe mix a little Jon Hamm ("Mad Men") in there for credibility, just in case.

These preview snaps from Zack Snyder‘s Sucker Punch contain all the elements of a fanboy handjob, minus the inclusion of a recognizable superhero. You’ve got a lot of hot girls (Emily Browning, Jena Malone, Jamie Chung, Abbie Cornish and Vanessa Hudgens) in sexy outfits wielding weapons in fantasy locations, and Don Draper for all the girlfriends out there. That hits all the quadrants I can think of.

Warner Bros. just released a million stills from Sucker Punch for our ogling before the March 25th release date, and not to worry – I tossed out all the lame ones where it just looks like people are talking. Blab, blab, blab – more cleavage shaking due to holding a machine gun, please. (Cinema Blend)

Sucker Punch continues its unabashed poster assault on movie fans with five more equally cool-looking posters that feature five characters of the fairer sex. In this installment, we are lucky enough to get images of Emily Browning, Jena Malone, Abbie Cornish, Vanessa Hudgens, and Jamie Chung in myriad poses of kick-assery. The posters carry the characters names as well, so we are treated to Baby Doll, Rocket, Sweet Pea, Blondie, and Amber, respectively. We got the big banner art last week, then these, so next week I think we can all expect some understated wallet-sized photos of the cast.

‘Sucker Punch’ Trailer Has Everything http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/sucker-punch-trailer-has-everything/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/sucker-punch-trailer-has-everything/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Warner Bros. has unleashed the trailer for Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch. No matter what you're fond of in life, it's probably somewhere in this film. Hot girls, dragons, robots, robot samurai, zepplins, it's all there. The film stars Abbie Cornish, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone, Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgins, Jon Hamm, Scott Glenn, and Carla Gugino. They all play humans, as far as I can tell, but I'm sure one of them could change into a robot samurai at any moment. I don't even want to attempt putting this movie's plot into words so here's the official synopsis:

Sucker Punch is an epic action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality.  Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, but her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary…with potentially tragic consequences.

Give your eyes an orgasm with the trailer below.
