Warner Bros. Interactive Marketing team commissioned Axis Animation to produce four animated shorts inspired by Zack Snyder’s latest feature film, Sucker Punch.
Director Ben Hibon collaborated with
Comflix Studios to explore the fantasy
worlds portrayed in the film.
The animations provide a taste of the four key environments of the film, allowing the audience to experience each surreal realm as an online trailer.
You can view all four Suckerpunch
animated shorts in full resolution at
the Apple trailer site here.
