#4: SUCKER PUNCH
Director: Zack Snyder

Release Date: March 25
Why we’re excited: Zack Snyder’s previous films (Dawn of the Dead, 300, Watchmen) were right in our wheelhouse, but with Sucker Punch, he has drilled a pipeline right into our wildest dreams. Described by director/co-writer Snyder as “Alice in Wonderland with machine guns,” this stylized actionfest is crammed with stuff we love: provocatively dressed hot chicks, zombies, dragons and samurai warriors. Will it make much sense? Hell if we know, nor do we care. Babes fighting monsters with samurai swords? Sounds like award-worthy cinema to us. Sucker Punch looks like shameless escapism, and we can’t wait.
