'Sucker Punch' Stars Support Release Of A Snyder Cut For Cult Film


'Sucker Punch' Stars Support Release Of A Snyder Cut For Cult Film

Cast your mind back, if you can, to earlier this year. Zack Snyder's Justice League was finally released after a determined fan-campaign, and Snyder lovers everywhere were treated to the director's original vision for the DC superhero movie.


That original vision proved to not be to everyone's liking, but it certainly went down a heck of a lot smoother than the critically panned theatrical cut from 2017. Zack Snyder's Justice League is still a bit of a mess, but it's a consistent one. The four-hour epic combines beefy CG aliens and some outstanding action scenes with a much greater focus on character development. I didn't love it, but I love that other people did - if that makes sense?

Remind yourself of Zack Snyder's Justice League by having a peek at the action-packed trailer below:



Now that Zack Snyder's Justice League is out of the way, fans are starting to wonder if there any other past Snyder projects out there that could benefit from an extended cut. The man himself has already confirmed that there are no plans for a Snyder Cut of Army Of The Dead, because it's already awesome. But he has suggested that his 2011 cult hit Sucker Punch could use some reworking, and many of the stars of the film agree.

"That is a movie I wrote with my friend Steve Shibuya and Steve and I had been talking about the movie for a long time actually because the movie to me is, you know, people don't acknowledge it, but it's a protest movie in a lot of ways," Snyder told Vanity Fair of the divisive film. "It's a movie about genre like I was asked at the time, why did you dress the girls like that and I always go 'I didn't dress them like that, you did.'

"I always saw it as an indictment of, in some ways, popular culture. I think at the time I was criticized for it being the opposite, like some sort of sexist like, rant, but it was fun to make and I still love it to this day. That was the first time where I really faced like a true radical restructuring of the film for it to be more commercial and there's a director's cut of that movie that has yet to be released. I'll say that out loud."


Not long after this interview went live, Sucker Punch stars Abbie Cornish and Jena Malone threw their weight behind the idea. Malone shared the article on Instagram with the familiar hashtag #ReleaseTheSnyderCut. Cornish then shared Malone's original post echoing the sentiment.

It's unlikely this particular campaign will come to anything, given the simple fact that Sucker Punch is nowhere near as substantial a property as Justice League. Still, we can all dream.
