I have been pretty pessimistic about Sucker Punch recently. I like Zack Snyder a lot, but Watchmen had a lot of problems, and 300 was just downright silly. Silly, not cool. This whole slow motion thing… yeah Zack, please let the slow motion thing go. This heightened speed followed instantly by slow motion type of shot got old halfway through 300. So, please stop.

I also wasn’t really into Sucker Punch’s thing with girls in miniskirts and guns vibe. Yes, I know it’s empowering and everything, apparently. It just feels like a nerd’s wet dream to me. A male nerd. I suppose at least he didn’t go for an entirely Asian cast or something.

Despite these reservations, I love this new trailer. Dragon, giant samurai with minigun, perfectly chosen song… I think that all trailers should contain each of these elements from now on. Including On Golden Pond 2: The Reckoning. That would be sweet.
