Zack Snyder’s SUCKER PUNCH 3D Getting IMAX Release

     May 11, 2010

Zack Snyder’s upcoming pic Sucker Punch 3D will be released in the expanded IMAX format simultaneously with its regular release on March 25, 2011.  THR reports this is part of a 20-picture distribution deal between Warner Brothers and IMAX lasting through 2013.  The film is a 1950s period piece that tells the story of an institutionalized girl who retreats to an alternate reality to devise a means to escape the asylum.

Snyder is no stranger to IMAX releases — his last film, Watchmen, had a similar distribution — so I trust the finished product will look and feel really immersive in its full aspect ratio.  One can only hope IMAX 3D prices will retreat a little between now and next March, what with the number of films being rolled out.

If you’re going to Comic-Con this year, Snyder has said to expect footage from the movie.
