Zack Snyder‘s Sucker Punch has been talked about quite a bit since its opening last weekend, and unfortunately not for great reasons. (read NB’s Editor-in-chief, Luke Gallagher’s review here) I haven’t had the chance to take in the sexy girl, samurai and dragon fightin’, nerdgasm fantasy epic yet so I in no way have much of an opinion. I do plan on seeing it, but you can understand how my enthusiasm waned when everyone was telling me it was utter crap. Currently Sucker Punch is holding a 20% on Rotten Tomatoes and it only made $19 million its opening weekend. Yikes! You never know, years from now Sucker Punch might climb to cult status and people will be swapping stories of how they loved it from the get go (which is all lies, because if that was the case all cult classics would be box office sensations).
Maybe you’re still on the fence about whether or not you want to cough up the 10 bucks (or $12 or $15 depending where you live and if you want 3D & Imax) to see Sucker Punch. Well Warner Bros. really wants you to see Sucker Punch, so much so they’ve released the first six minutes of the film online. They want you to share in Snyder’s fantasy, and they would like to make a little of that $82 million budget back. Double yikes!
