We've already seen a two kick-ass trailers, an awesome TV spot and recently, a pseudo music video for Zack Snyder's action-packed genre mash-up Sucker Punch. In addition there's been a pretty sweet collection of character posters, a huge banner, and a sexy theatrical poster. Now the marketing machine has transported us back to the setting of the film for some 50's inspired vintage propaganda posters featuring the badass babes of Sucker Punch. Though they look like they've been scanned in and they're not quite as awesome as those retro Kick-Ass posters from last year, they're still pretty damn cool. Check out all the posters below.
Here's the vintage posters courtesy of Kino Gallery and discovered by Collider:
Sucker Punch is Zack Snyder's first movie not based on previous material, but an original idea that he came up with and turned into a screenplay with co-writer Steve Shibuya. Set in the 1950's, Sucker Punch follows Baby Doll (Emily Browning) who is confined to a mental institution by her stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. While there, she imagines an alternative reality to hide her from the pain, and begins planning her escape, needing to steal five objects to help get her out before she is deflowered by a vile man. Warner Brothers is bringing Sucker Punch to theaters starting on March 25th this year. Thoughts?
Awesome posters for an (hope so!!) awesome movie!!

Okay. I was able to shrug off most of the bad juu juu coming from the news/trailers of this movie, but these posters sealed the deal for me. I do not think I'll be watching this film.

This movie looks sweet, they've been recycling a lot of footage in the trailers so the hype I was feeling a couple months ago has died down a bit. But that just means there's an assload of awesome that they're saving and I'm hoping to be blown away. Snyder hasn't disappointed me yet, fingers crossed.

I can't understand what element of this piece of art can go wrong. This movie has everything to win.

The expression on the Women's faces who are shooting guns look a little stale. They need to be grimacing a bit, and not looking like they are modeling makeup.

I'm not trying to be a fuck, but this movie (sucker punch) is not a completely original movie. This movie was inspired by a 1950s female propaganda poster that I saw in 2007. Now Snyder tries to make it seem like he thought of such things.
