Sucker Punch (directed by Zack Snyder) hits cinema screens in March 2011. To celebrate the extraordinary design of this stunning epic action fantasy, Titan Books is publishing Sucker Punch: The Art of the Film, a lavish tie-in book by Zack Synder.
â€œIn The Art of the Film, Zack Snyder takes you on a personal journey through the many magnificent worlds and memorable characters of the film, offering a unique insiderâ€™s look at eye-popping concept and design art, as well as a wealth of stunning on–set photography by world-renowned Clay Enos, This deluxe, large-format hardback takes readers from Zack Snyderâ€™s production design office right through to the studio floor, offering an unprecedented opportunity to peek behind-the-scenes of one the most anticipated films of 2011.
- â€˜I saw the book as a visually interesting way to deconstruct the process of designing and prepping a film — peeling it apart layer by layer,â€™ said Snyder. â€˜So much amazing artwork is generated throughout the development process of a film, especially one that occupies so many different worlds and environments. I wanted to be able to share that in a meaningful way, beyond what’s captured on screen.â€™
Sucker Punch takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl, whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her but her incredible adventures blur the lines between whatâ€™s real and what is imaginaryâ€¦with potentially tragic consequences.
Zack Snyder is the director of Dawn of the Dead, 300 and Watchmen. He directed, produced and co-wrote, with Steve Shibuya, Sucker Punch. It has just been announced that his next project will be the new Superman film.â€
