"Women are always looking for multiple layers because women are very complex creatures," said Carla Gugino, who plays Mrs. Schulz, the asylum psychiatrist. "You'll see a strength and a triumph in every one of these characters."
The film's heroines are played by Emily Browning ("Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events"), Jena Malone ( "The Soloist"), Jamie Chung ( "Sorority Row"), Vanessa Hudgens ("High School Musical 2") and Abbie Cornish ("Bright Star").
Snyder, who set the film world's testosterone standard to a new high with a ripped cast in "300," said his all-female lineup in "Sucker Punch" was "amazing."

After Gugino mentioned that Snyder "likes women", he half-jokingly confirmed the statement.
"I do like women," the 44-year-old director said. "After '300' people were saying I didn't. But, yes, I do like women."
