Between the breathtaking battles of "300" to the stunning superheroics of "Watchmen" (and, one has to imagine, his upcoming flight with "Superman"), there's very little debate that Zack Snyder knows his way around a fight scene. Perhaps that fact has never been more clear than in "Sucker Punch," his surrealist action thriller about a psychiatric patient who dives into a combat-driven fantasy world in an effort to escape the horrors of her reality.
Throughout "Sucker Punch," leading lady Emily Browning and her harem of heroines go toe-to-toe against some truly grisly bad guys. But perhaps Browning's most fearsome foes are the 10-foot tall Samurai cyborgs that bring all of their firepower to bear upon the comparably miniature young woman, armed with only a sword and a handgun to defend herself. It's an adrenaline-pumping, pulse-pounding sequence that never lets up for a minute — and now, thanks to an exclusive clip from the "Sucker Punch" Blu-ray, Snyder himself is here to take you through the anatomy of that Samurai showdown. Click the video below and watch for yourself.
"Sucker Punch" arrives on DVD and Blu-ray today (June 28).
By now, you've no doubt heard that "300" helmer Zach Snyder has been confirmed as director of the Christopher Nolan-produced "Superman" reboot. You may also be privy to the rumors that Zod (aka the Kryptonian villain from "Superman 2") will be the film's big bad. What may have escaped your unfailing attention to detail, however, is that Zod was reintroduced to pop culture in a big way back on June 28, 2010.
That's when Kristen Stewart raided the Zodster's closet to clothe herself for an appearance on the "The Late Show With David Letterman" (see photo). OK, we jest. Kristen does look quite fetching -- if a little Zod-esque -- in the outfit.
She got us thinking: What would other celebrities look like as Zod? To satisfy our curiosity, we've put together a little gallery of well-known folks -- from Lady Gaga to Jude Law (who looks a hell of a lot like the original Zod, Terence Stamp) to Justin Bieber -- sporting Zod's all-black ensemble and even his eeevil facial hair. The results, we must say, are interesting.
