Sucker Punch received a lukewarm reception when it was originally released, and while it pleased a small faithful fan base and gained something of a cult following over the years. The movie tells the story of Babydoll, a girl wrongly convicted of murder and locked in an asylum. Her escape leads her through a number of different fantasy environments ranging from sci-if to medieval. The film only just made back its $82 million budget, and general consensus from critics was not exactly glowing with praise.
For that reason alone, the likelihood of Sucker Punch “The Snyder Punch” actually seeing light of day is quite low. The length of time since the original release would mean that unlike Justice League, the new cut would need to be put together from old footage abandoned from the theatrical release, which in turn would need a reasonable amount of additional sound and video editing and enhancement to bring the whole thing together. It seems like a lot of money and effort for a movie that didn’t exactly create a memorable impact the first time around. Even with the enhanced appeal of Snyder’s current wave of popularity, it would be very hard to promote a movie like that and gain a sizeable return on the cost and work that went into it. However, in these days of streaming, where there is a demand for exclusive content and only so much time to make new movies and shows to meet it, we should really never say never. Keep an eye on the #ReleaseTheSnyderPunch tag to see if it’s new found allies help it gain any more traction over at Twitter.
