Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch

The film stars Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Emily Browning, Scott Glenn, Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung. The film follows Emily Browning’s character, Babydoll, who is confined to a mental institution from which she fantasizes an alternate reality. Browning and the other girls seen here are all wards of the institution, and this shot is part of the fantasy reality, in which Browning is trying to find a handful of objects that will allow her to escape. Snyder has said many times that the film will be a dark, violent fantasty full of guns, action and monsters.

What a weird mash up of styles. The trailer didn't do much for me, I'm too used to all this themes thanks to video games.

I'm going to get so many boners, I cannot fucking wait. I can't believe that there are a bunch of pussies above us saying it looks shit.

 

Off the fucking hook, nuts-awesome. I'm glad people make films like this.

Lots of hot women means a film is shit*. The film is rubbish so they have to compensate by filling it with scantily clad, sexy maidens so that loads of men watch it think "PHWOAR! I'd do her!" and are too shallow to actually notice the film has very little story.

 

 

*excludes porn films.

Interview. - MPAA Problems

 

 

Some of his ambivalence may be due to the fact that after the film was finished and submitted to the MPAA problems began to surface. “I made the movie with the intention of it being PG-13. I just had no idea how far you’d have to go to keep it PG-13,” Snyder says. His wife and producer, Deborah Snyder agrees, “It took us five tries.” Zack continues, “So, you know, I don’t know how they could come down that hard on us, but they came down pretty hard on us I think. I was like, I can’t, when we were struggling with it I was like, I can’t have this movie be Rated R. Personally I can’t, because this would be the worst R ever, in history, right? Because it’s R for like leering and weirdness, which is just a bad R. If I went to it and saw it I would say, ‘This is fucking… where is my R rated shit?’

 

Snyder continues, “Because Debbie can tell you, I can make an R movie if I have to. If I want to make an R rated movie it’s going to be Rated R. You know, I’m like adamant about that. But, in this case, part of the reason we decided to make it PG-13 was that I was afraid that the idea would get lost in the violence, in the sex and violence, because I would’ve just gone for it. It would’ve got pretty frickin’ dark pretty fast. Not to say that it’s not dark now as it is but it would’ve been way worse. I can’t even begin to imagine what it would’ve been like. It would’ve been awesome.”

 

While it’s not out of the ordinary for a film to change in the cutting room, or even change significantly, it’s relatively rare for entire concepts that were in the original script to be shot and then done away with. Regrettably, due to the MPAA or otherwise, this is case with Sucker Punch. The original concept called for dance routines for each character, five in all plus a group number, but in the final cut only one has survived and it has been relegated to the final credits. This results in a film with a subconscious. There is a palpable feeling of something missing and several scenes where extras are standing in the background waiting for something to happen which tragically for them, never will.

 

When pre-production on the film began and Marius De Vries, music director of Moulin Rouge, was hired, in addition to choreographer Paul Becker, most journalists assumed the film would be part musical. Becker was not present at the film’s junket in Los Angeles, but during a 14 March 2011 interview he described the Sucker Punch’s dance sequences, apparently unaware that they would not be in the final film, “Each female lead in the film has a persona and objective. We meshed the objective and persona of each character to the tone and concept of each dance. Because the film takes place in a brothel it calls for these huge production numbers.”

 

Jena Malone, who played Rocket, said, “I did a sci-fi nurse zombie pole dance. Look for the director’s cut, I think you’ll be satisfied with that and so shall we. We all worked really hard on these dances that we got to do and they’re very fulfilling.” Carla Gugino reacted by saying, “They [the dance sequences] really were very key. I think down the road you’ll eventually see it in the body of the movie.” Carla’s counterpart, Oscar Isaac said, “At the time it [our dance] was, as scripted, in the middle of the film and uh, as we worked on it, it would start to reveal all these levels of what our relationship may have been.”

 

 

Music producer Marius De Vries offered the clearest explanation for the removal of the dance sequences when he said, “We had an awful lot of possible strategies. Zack wanted to be adventurous and be able to experiment and didn’t want to commit up front to one particular way of doing this [...] There were songs that were actually shot as performance pieces because we wanted to see how far into that theatricalized level of reality which is one of her delusions, how far we could go and not break the turn of the movie. And the answer to that is not as far as we thought.” Although it’s difficult to believe that six elaborate dance sequences were scored, shot and then cut because Snyder “didn’t want to commit up front” we will probably never know the final explanation.

If the scenes were cut to get a PG-13 rating, and if the movie suffered because of it, I have just one more reason to hate the ratings system.
