One of the Hall H presentations I was most anxious to see was Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch. I'm an unapologetic Snyder fan. I think he's one of the most interesting directors to pop on the scene in this decade. He's developing a trademark style for himself and even if you don't like it, you have to respect him for being original enough to stick to his speed ramping.

Sucker Punch is his first original work, which is always a fun prospect from any director, and I like what I know of the concept. I was eager to see how it played in Hall H, which tends to champion Snyder. (His 300 and Watchmen presentations rank among some of the more memorable things I've seen there.) This year was an exception, if only because everyone seemed to struggle with what they saw. Everyone I pumped for information said they liked it, but they honestly didn't know what it was. The consensus was that the visuals were amazing.

Now you (and I!) can see the footage ourselves. Snyder just opened a Twitter account, and one of his first Tweets was an announcement that Sucker Punch's ComicCon trailer was now available online. It's over on Apple in glorious hi-def (or you can watch it after the jump). Like those in Hall H, I find it difficult to describe, so just watch it for yourself. All I know is that I want to see more, and I'm crossing my fingers that its plot and performances match the incredible world Snyder appears to have created.
