Was rummaging around in trailers.apple.com and stumbled across the trailer for this movie Sucker Punch.
Story line as follows:-

Close your eyes. Open your mind. You will be unprepared. "Sucker Punch" is an epic action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality.
Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what's real and what is imaginary. She has been locked away against her will, but Babydoll (Emily Browning) has not lost her will to survive.

Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls--the outspoken Rocket (Jena Malone), the street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), the fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung) and the reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish)--to band together and try to escape their terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue (Oscar Isaac), Madam Gorski (Carla Gugino) and the High Roller (Jon Hamm).
Led by Babydoll, the girls engage in fantastical warfare against everything from samurais to serpents, with a virtual arsenal at their disposal. Together, they must decide what they are willing to sacrifice in order to stay alive. But with the help of a Wise Man (Scott Glenn), their unbelievable journey--if they succeed--will set them free.

The heroin Babydoll runs around in a sailor schoolgirl uniform and wields a Japanese katana. The movie has some Japanesque flavor to it too which looks rather coolsome. Nab the HD trailers from Apple or check out the embed ones below from YouTube.



Or use this search query if they get deleted for whatever reason as they usually do at YouTube.

I'm a sucker for eye candy and tough girls so will go and see the movie when it comes out.

Interestingly enough, according to some of my comrade figure makers, "tough girl" character figures don't seem to sell as well as the moe character figures in Japan but too tend to sell better outside of Japan.
