Meet the Ladies of Sucker Punch

By: / March 24, 2011

Young Hollywood starlets Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung team up in the hopes of Sucker Punch-ing their box office competition this weekend. The action-packed fantasy film Sucker Punch is set in the 1950s and follows a young girl’s attempt to escape an asylum with her inmate friends facing the threat of a lobotomy. Director Zack Snyder describes the film as “Alice in Wonderland with machine guns,” complete with dragons, B-25 bombers and brothels.

The star-studded ensemble cast proves to be a force to be reckoned with on-screen, but who are these fierce females? Celebuzz has compiled a guide to the leading ladies of Sucker Punch.
