If the inmates at Shutter Island had looked anything like the ones at Lennox House, Leonardo DiCaprio might not have been so concerned.

In Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch—think Alice in Wonderland meets Girl, Interrupted meets Final Fantasy—a wrongfully committed Emily Browning is encouraged to escape into the recesses of her mind.

While there, she happens to discover an apocalyptic alternate reality that, if she can just karate-chop and gun down enough enemies with the help of fellow bombshell mental patients Vanessa Hudgens, Jena Malone and Abbie Cornish, she'll be free!

Or else she'll be lobotomized in the real world.

Scott Glenn plays the virtual-world guru who tasks her with tracking down five objects (hint: they aren't horcruxes), and Carla Gugino apparently teaches the asylum's weekly pole-dancing class.

Sucker Punch hits theaters in 3-D on March 25.
