After Inception and Scott Pilgrim, my worry was that there was nowhere for action/sci fi movies to go from here.
Thankfully, I was swiftly proven wrong.

Not so much is known about this movie yet, other than that it looks awesome.
It starts Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung and Carla Gugino as a group of girls who are somehow, against their will sent to a mental asylum for girls, which, behind the scenes acts as a brothel. As a way of dealing with the horrors they witness there, the girls escape into what seems like some kind of shared fantasy world, where they evnetually are able to empower themselves enough to escape their prison in the real world.

What I see here is Moulin Rouge slapped together with some Legend of the 5 Rings Samurai epic, Dungeons and Dragons with a dash of the World War 2 scenes from Hellboy nad some J.J. Abrams Star Trek to round it all out.

This is the geek fantasy movie that was always meant to be!
