Zach Snyder discusses the “sexy girls, orcs, and samurai” of ‘Sucker Punch’

By Whitney Milam

HollywoodNews.com: With the trailer for Zach Snyder’s upcoming multi-genre, Steampunk-esque film “Sucker Punch”, starring Emily Browning as a girl called Baby Doll who embarks on an action-packed fantasy quest to escape an insane asylum, being one of the unexpected highlights of Comic-Con and receiving lots of post-convention internet buzz, it’s only natural to want more details on what is by all accounts an intriguing, ambitious, and certainly unconventional film. Luckily, Snyder sat down for an extensive, probing roundtable interview this week to shed new light on the project.

Like the summer’s most talked-about movie, Inception, Sucker Punch also deals with blurring the lines between reality and dreams (while Inception has four different levels of reality, Sucker Punch has three: “We didn’t have quite as much money,” jokes Snyder), but don’t expect such a crisp, straightforward narrative from the latter. Says Snyder: “I don’t dream like that…I dream in a different way. When one of the girls fantasizes or whatever you want to call it, their adventure parallels a little adventure they’re doing in reality. I just use my own imagination as a template.”

Snyder and his wife, Debbie, are confident in the film’s wide-reaching appeal. “Well, I hope the film will appeal to, you know, everybody because I don’t think that boys are going to see the images and be like, ‘I don’t want to watch that, it’s about a bunch of girls with machine guns.’” Debbie chimes in, “By the way, there’s sexy girls, orcs, samurai, and all these creatures.” What’s not to love?
