Abbie Cornish as Sweet Pea, Emily Browning as Babydoll and Jena Malone as Rocket in Sucker Punch (Clay Enos)

STARRING Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, and Abbie Cornish
DIRECTED BY Zack Snyder

Here be dragons. And awesome steampunk robots. And scantily-clad, sweet-looking girls like Vanessa Hudgens and Emily Browning wielding submachine guns. Yes, 300 director Zack Snyder’s new movie, Sucker Punch, is basically what happens when a male id is left totally unchecked. Browning stars as a girl known only as Baby Doll who’s been locked in a mental hospital by her evil stepfather. She and the institution’s other pretty young inmates — including Hudgens, Jena Malone, Jamie Chung, and Abbie Cornish — must band together to fight a group of devious captors for their freedom. Sorta like 300, except with more mini-skirts.
