The L.A. premiere of Sucker Punch took place last night. It mainly involves a load of feisty hot birds, some in a state of undress, running around wielding weapons in a highly arousing fashion.

As luck would have it, John is heading off to London next Wednesday to interview all these lovelies - including Vanessa Hudgens (as she's due to be interviewed alongside Jamie Chung and Jena Malone there will be little maneuver for peeeaarsonadle questions…), Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Carla Guigno, Oscar Isaac (at last, a man! ) and esteemed director Zack Snyder.

Speaking of men folk, some actually troubled themselves to attend last night, hats off to you Joe Jonas (JLS's stylist - Dorothy Zbornak - has a lot to answer for...) and Jon Hamm, as well as the fabulously named Max Irons and Grey Damon. OK, Derek Hough and his perennially baked features were also there. Additional females in the form of Malin Ackerman, Emma Roberts and Diane Lane also turned up.

Now is as good a time as any to shamlessly plug our Sucker Punch competition - flights, accommodation, and tickets to Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego anyone?
