The audio companion to the film director Zack Snyder describes as 'Alice In Wonderland with machine guns' has taken over two years to create, and will delight filmgoers and music fans of all generations.
'Sucker Punch is a film created with multiple levels of reality, so this same layered construct had to be considered and applied when approaching the music. The selection of songs we chose and the various ways in which they were each re-envisioned had to add depth, dimension and meaning to the sequences they exist within. Marius and Tyler did an amazing job creating an intricate musical landscape to accompany the surreal imagery of the film.'
Fascinatingly reworked versions of classic songs illuminate the soundtrack, with the film's star Emily Browning covering 'Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)' (Eurythmics), 'Where Is My Mind?' (The Pixies), and 'Asleep' (The Smiths), and stars Carla Gugino (Watchmen) and Oscar Isaac (Robin Hood) performing a sultry, musical theatre-inspired version of 'Love Is The Drug' (Roxy Music). Alison Mosshart (The Dead Weather, The Kills) and Carla Azar (Autolux) team up on a haunting version of 'Tomorrow Never Knows' (The Beatles). Björk fans will love the newly created version of 'Army Of Me (Sucker Punch Remix)' that features Skunk Anansie and clocks in at nearly seven minutes.
Intense, sexy, edgy and highly imaginative, these new and unrestrained arrangements of legendary songs, along with the original mash up of Queen's 'I Want It All/We Will Rock You' featuring Armageddon Aka Geddy (Terror Squad), are the backbone of the film driving the relationship between the motives of the characters and the lengths they are willing to go for survival.
