Okay, time for some fanboy true confessions. While I enjoyed Zack Snyder's Dawn of the Dead, I've been completely unable to sit through the likes of Watchmen and 300. Believe me, I've tried. They're great-looking films, but right around the halfway mark, my mind starts to wander... Does my printer have enough ink? How many pages did I procrastinate away today? Maybe the Knicks will make the playoffs this season — maybe I'm delusional...

I kinda feel the same way about this Suckerpunch trailer. Absolutely fantastic visuals. I mean, hot chicks, dragons *and* zeppelins! What's not to like? But has anyone seen... Story... Story? Anyone? Bueller?

Sure, there might be a great tale hiding deep, (deep, deep) underneath all the slo-mo shots, eye candy and epic trailer music, but what if there isn't? What if it's just more of the same?


The trailer was designed to piqué our interests, Scream. Stop over-analyzing. Maybe Snyder just doesn't speak to you. As a matter of fact, why don't you tear up your fanboy card after this post, because you're no longer a member of our club. SNYDER ROOLZ!


They say you should always try to imagine the trailer for the your script: all the cool set pieces, visual gags, one-liners, etc. but don't forget about its heart.
