The Trenches Animated Short

Thought you wouldn't see anything else from Sucker Punch in these last few weeks, didn't you? Although we've seen more than enough trailers and TV spots to last a lifetime for Zack Snyder's epicly stylized action flick, hitting theaters in just a few weeks, this is still worth watching. Apple has debuted an animated short film by Ben Hibon, the same animator behind that amazing animated sequence from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I. The short is called The Trenches and is a short story told about the WWI zombie soldier fairytale that Baby Doll (Emily Browning) and her girls end up in in the movie. Check this out below!

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 on March 25th this very month. Can't wait!

I love Snyder' grasp on artistic ingenuity. Awesome. Just hope the actual film will be as well. Another PG-13 that looks as though it was meant to carry the R.

Agreed. I really hope if it did cut things to reach a PG-13, that they're at least thrown back in for a DVD release. I was just thinking a few days ago when I saw a TV spot and heard the "PG-13" that that was a little mild for where the movie looks like it could go.

Really liked that, has quite an AfterEffects look to it. Definitely had a good mood to it.

Love him or hate him you got to admit Zack Snyder and company have style down to an exact science
