Comic-Con: First Look at Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch Art
Our buddy Zack Snyder was in San Diego last night hosting a Blu-Ray Live screening of Watchmen for Comic-Con. Apparently a few of these new shirts for his next upcoming movie, Sucker Punch, were handed out during that screening. I actually saw someone wearing one last night as well, but didn't get a shot of it, so I'm happy this showed up online anyway. Deadline Hollywood snapped a shot of the very first "art" from Sucker Punch that's publicly available. From that design alone, this looks like some twisted, dark, crazy stuff that we'll be seeing in Zack's next movie. As far as I know, that is Emily Browning on the shirt.
Sucker Punch is Zack Snyder's first movie not based on previous material, rather an original idea that he came up with. The story follows a young girl institutionalized by her wicked stepfather. Retreating to an "alternative reality" as a coping strategy, she envisions a plan which will help her escape from the facility. Emily Browning stars as Baby Doll and is joined by Abbie Cornish, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone, and Vanessa Hudgens. I'm digging the hidden sword and pin in the logo. I hope that means we get to see Browning kick some ass with a samurai sword as well as machine guns and more. Shooting starts soon up in Vancouver.
Update: This art on the shirt was created by Alex Pardee of Snafu Comics. You can find more of his work and his official blog right here. It sounds like he did additional work for Snyder on Sucker Punch as well.

as this is an original idea form Synder himself hopefully he will be able to control the creative input on all aspects of the story and film. And as for this art for Sucker Punch...its great!

Thanks so much for posting! The art is awesome! The crazier the better. They start shooting in a couple of months so hopefully we'll get more news and clues.

Alex Pardee created the above artwork. He also recently created the artwork for Cage's newest album DEPART FROM ME. If you like the above artwork, please check him out. He's extremely, insanely talented and it's time he got his fucking due. Also, google the trailer for his animated film CHADAM.

Wow. Alex Pardees art looks sick. With Snyders eye for visuals we can be in for something unique this time.

Oh that's fantastic! Can't wait for more on this. Zach is an amazing director! Going to be interesting to see what he's come up with, since this is original material.
