Directed by: Zack Snyder
Written by: Zack Snyder & Steve Shibuya (screenplay)

Remakes and graphic novel adaptations are Zack Snyder’s MO. Lately though, with last year’s Legend of the Guardians and now Sucker Punch, he’s decided to take his over-stylized style off of the comic book page and map out novels or original material into his own wild odyssey.
Sucker Punch has Snyder’s name all over it from the get-go. It begins with a violent slow-motion sequence of a young girl (Emily Browning) accidentally shooting her sister when she was aiming for her wicked stepfather and then being brought to a mental hospital where she will await her lobotomy.
