Close your eyes. Open your mind. You will be unprepared.
"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, and her incredible
adventures blur the lines between what"s real and what is imaginary.
She has been locked away against her will, but Babydoll (Emily
Browning) has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her
freedom, she urges four other young girls--the outspoken Rocket (Jena
Malone), the street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), the fiercely loyal
Amber (Jamie Chung) and the reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish)--to
band together and try to escape their terrible fate at the hands of their
captors, Blue (Oscar Isaac
), Madam Gorski (Carla Gugino
) and the High
Roller (Jon Hamm).
Led by Babydoll, the girls engage in fantastical warfare against everything
from samurais to serpents, with a virtual arsenal at their disposal.
Together, they must decide what they are willing to sacrifice in order to
stay alive. But with the help of a Wise Man (Scott Glenn), their
unbelievable journey--if they succeed--will set them free.
