I didn’t hate Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch, but I didn’t love it either. Sucker Punch had a huge presence at last years Comic Con, and while I didn’t feel like sleeping outside to get into Hall H, there was a lot of “buzz” surrounding the film; after all it was Zack “300” Snyder, the same guy that gave us Dawn of the Dead, and Watchmen… That’s a pretty solid track record. What happens when you give a “visionary” director total creative freedom? You get Sucker Punched (see what I did there?).
Have you ever wanted to get the stink eye from an actual knight (Sir Ben Kingsley)? Or perhaps see Gweneth Paltrow fly backwards in super-slow motion? The ultra-dark Iron Man 3 trailer dropped early this morning, and damn does it get all bleak and “Nolan-y.” Iron Man 3 seems to be blending a wee bit of the Marvel Comics Extremis arc with everyone’s favorite blinged out villain the Mandarin. Enjoy!
