Sucker Punch, the action fantasy adventure directed by Zack Synder, opens in U.S. theaters on Friday, March 25. The film features a number of Asian American talent both in front of and behind the camera, and we at 8Asians be bringing you more about them in the near future. Aside from actresses Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung, Asian Americans involved with the film include screenwriter Steve Shibuya, cinematographer Larry Fong and editor William Hoy. Additionally, Sucker Punch‘s unique style also incorporates various Asian pop culture influences such as Japanese anime, Hong Kong martial arts films and even Sun Tzu’s The Art of War.
