Emily Browning and Vanessa Hudgens bringing Sucker Punch to Blu-ray
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Warner Bros. has announced that the CGI-infested action/ drama SUCKER PUNCH, from director Zack Snyder and starring Emily Browning, Vanessa Hudgens, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Jamie Chung and Jon Hamm, will be released on Blu-ray on June 28, 2011. The Extended Cut edition includes 18 minutes of footage which bumps the film from a PG-13 rating (which was how it was released) into an R rating. The BD will also include a picture in picture commentary with Snyder as well as the Animated Shorts: Sucker Punch Prequel Stories. Further details will most likely be released soon.
SUCKER PUNCH was one of those films that I was slightly interested in, but didn’t really have any high hopes for. It was painfully obvious that Warner Bros. had a clue this would be a bit of a bomb which is why they poured so much money into marketing, in hopes that people would change their minds and get excited. Sadly, their plan didn’t work as this film only grossed a little of $36 million at the box office.
