Sucker Punch Animated Short Launches Online
Warner Bros. has released an animated short inspired by its upcoming film SUCKER PUNCH. THE TRENCHES was created by Ben Hibon, who is best known for The Three Brothers animated sequence from HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS — PART 1.
The description on Apple Trailers is as follows:
In "The Trenches" there is a tragic tale behind each lifeless mask. Presenting animated shorts inspired by Zack Snyder's new film, Sucker Punch. Director Zack Snyder and animator Ben Hibon collaborated with Splastk to further explore the fantasy worlds in the film. The animated shorts provide a distinct glimpse into those surreal places, allowing people to experience the worlds in a very unique way. "It made sense to me to not only approach the worlds from an original direction in terms of story and focus," says Snyder, "but also to really push the visual style in a different direction as well. Having seen his contribution to the latest Harry Potter film and looking at some of his other recent work, Ben's talent was obvious and his aesthetic felt like a perfect fit. His work is graphic and visually arresting." Hibon relished an opportunity to expand upon Snyder's unique vision. "Zack is one of the most exciting and original directors working in Hollywood today. Sucker Punch is nothing short of pure visual madness."
Zack Snyder’s SUCKER PUNCH arrives in theaters and IMAX on March 25.
