wow, what timing, thanks. Zach Snyder, is out of his mind for making a loose movie like this. Absolutely, nonsense. But, the VFX is top of the line

The wood simulation was done with a custom version of DMM - the same finite element modeling system that comes with Maya 2012. We worked with MPC to adopt DMM into their destruction pipeline. The result is their new destruction system called "KALI". There are more details on this in the Cinefex article on Sucker Punch - Cinefex 125.

The sequences with wood breaking turned out great and we are very proud of the work we did with MPC. Expect to see more of Kali in some upcoming movies that MPC is involved in ;-)
