Easily one of the most anticipated movies of the next few months is Zack Snyder’s dystopian imaginative fantasy Sucker Punch. And today we get another great look at the film with two new TV spots.

Set in the 1950’s, Sucker Punch tells the story of Baby Doll, a young girl confined to a mental institution by her stepfather who intends to have her lobotomised in five days time. In order to hide from the pain, both mentally and physically, she imagines an alternative reality, and begins planning her escape. To do this she must enlist the help of other young patients and track down five objects to help get her out.

The movies stars a bunch of young female talent with Emily Browning as Babydoll, Jamie Chung as Amber, Vanessa Hudgens as Blondie, Jena Malone as Rocket and Abbie Cornish as Sweet Pea.

Sucker Punch hits US screens March 25th, with Ireland following a week later on April 1st.

Reality is a prison…your mind can set you free.

Escape…lies within. Your mind is the greatest weapon.

Synopsis:

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.
