SUCKER PUNCH Extended R-Rated Cut Coming To Blu-Ray

Posted on 24 May 2011 by Rich Drees

I’ll admit that I found Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch to be an ambitious, sprawling mess of a film. Snyder was striving to say something but I don’t think he was able to quite get past his desire to stage visually excessive action sequences to articulate it clearly in cinematic terms. Perhaps Snyder does a better job of it in the upcoming R-rated extended cut of the film that will be coming out on blu-ray announced today.

The new version of the film will hit store shelves on June 28 and contain an additional 18 minutes of footage not seen in the Sucker Punch‘s original theatrical release.Additionally, the blu-ray will feature Maximum Movie Mode featuring branching off, director walk-ons and more, animated prequel sequences and more.

Here’s the complete sales one-sheet that Warner Brothers has released.

New Releases: March 25

Posted on 24 March 2011 by William Gatevackes

1. Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Roderick Rules (Fox, 3,167 Theaters, 96 Minutes, Rated PG): The $64,003,625 gross for Diary of a Wimpy Kid might not seem like the kind of numbers that lend itself to a continuation of the adaptation of the book series to the silver screen. However, since the original only cost $15 to produce, it means the film made over four times it’s money back. That is a success by anyone’s standards, especially Hollywood.

This installment involves the attempts of Greg’s parents to jump start a bonding experience between him and his surly older brother, Roderick. This leads to disastrous results.

Will this one have as good a return on its investment as the first one did? It better if they ever expect to see the film franchise continue.

2. Sucker Punch (Warner Brothers, 3,033 Theaters, 109 Minutes, Rated PG-13): Zach Snyder has made quite a name for himself by adapting films from other forms of media. His breakthrough was Dawn of the Dead, a remake of the George Romero classic. He built on his name with 300 a faithful adaptation of the Frank Miller graphic novel. Next, he tackled the untackleable Watchmen graphic novel and last year brought The Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole to the screen, which was based on a series of children’s books.

These adaptations allowed room for Snyder to form his own unique style and filter them through his own unique vision. But what if it was his own vision he was bringing to the screen? Will he still fare as well? This week, we’ll find out.

It appears that this grim, gritty, sexualized fairy tale comes to us directly from Snyder himself–no book or comic to be found. It tells the tale of a woman wrongly committed to an insane asylum who finds release in creating a fantasy world all her own.

Full Length SUCKER PUNCH Trailer

Posted on 04 November 2010 by Rich Drees

When the heavily-hyped Warner Brothers comedy Due Date hits theaters this weekend, it will have the first full-length trailer for Watchmen director Zack Snyder’s new film Sucker Punch. As opposed to the teaser we saw over the summer, this one gives a little bit more of the plot away, so I’ll skip any descriptions here. I just think it’s nice to see Snyder taking a break from comic book adaptations to do something that certainly feels influenced by that medium while still being an original project.

The film stars Emma Browning, Jon Hamm, Vanessa Hudgens, Abby Corning, Jena Malone, Carla Gugino and Michael Jai White. It hits theaters on March 25, 2011.

Want To See A Dragon Fight A Bomber?

Posted on 02 September 2010 by Rich Drees

In anticipation of next March’s release of Sucker Punch, director Zack Snyder’s production company has launched a website for his production company Cruel And Unusual Films. In addition to info on his past films (Dawn of the Dead, 300 and Watchmen) the site also will be a clearinghouse for information on Snyder’s production company’s upcoming projects like The Last Photograph, Cobalt 60 and Army Of The Dead. To kick things off, they’ve released a new still from Sucker Punch showcasing an aerial battle between a dragon and a World War Two-era bomber. While we’ve seen both the dragon and the bomber separately in the trailer that screened at the San Diego Comic Con in July, this is the first timw we’ve seen them together in action. Click on the picture for a much bigger version.

Scans From EW’s Comic-Con Issue: GL, THOR, PAUL

Posted on 15 July 2010 by William Gatevackes

Even though, optimistically, the issue probably won’t be on stands until tomorrow at the earliest, some subscribers to Entertainment Weekly received the previously mentioned Comic-Con issue today. I am one of those subscribers. And as a service to the FBOL readership, I have scanned some images of interest

Some points of note:

1. These are not high-quality scans. These are the best you can hope for with a scanner available to the general public scanning printed material. If you want better quality images, I strongly recommend that you go out and purchase the issue.

2. These images are trademark and copyright Entertainment Weekly and the originating studios. We here at FBOL do not own these images and would never claim to.

3. This is just a small sampling of the items inside the issue. They cover everything from Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch to Tron Legacy to Red. It’s recommended to all who are interested in these films and more of their ilk.

Now the images (Click on images for larger views):

The main article in the magazine is on Green Lantern. We get a peek of Blake Lively as Carol Ferris, Peter Sarsgaard as Hector Hammond–both before and after transformation, Angela Bassett as Amanda Waller, and Tim Robbins as Senator Hammond. We even get a sneak peek at Abin Sur.

.


Next up is one image from Thor with Thor and Odin having a heart to heart:

Finally, a picture from Paul, where a scene actually takes place at Comic-Con. This image isn’t that scene, I would assume.
