After the disappointment of Batman v. Superman – it was merely okay – Suicide Squad is a definite step in the right direction.
Despite having too many characters to give any but a handful more than the sketchiest of backgrounds, it’s smarter and more fun than BvS (though not the mad romp the last few trailers suggested it would be).
The first Suicide Squad trailer proclaimed ‘this is a film!’ The second suggested, ‘This is Film – but with these characters it will be fun!’
The new trailer focuses completely on the fun part of that equation with Harley leading the way and Deadshot getting a pretty great moment, too – set to Sweet’s Ballroom Blitz. The whole ‘Worst. Heroes. Ever.’ thing still applies…
Check it out after the break. Suicide Squad opens on August 5th.
The teaser trailer for Suicide Squad was dark and twisted and very cinematic – it was the one of the best trailers of the second half of 2015.
A new trailer aired on a CW special about the upcoming Warner Bros. movies that establish what host Kevin Smith called the ‘Justice League Universe.’ The new trailer puts a little more emphasis on the individuals that comprise the Suicide Squad and it is truly bananas.
Suicide Squad opens on March 25th. Check the new trailer out after the break.
Fury ratchets up the intensity from the opening moments and maintains it for over two hours through the introduction of characters that initially feel stock but become something else – and escalating violence and hints at the erosion of decency that war can cause.
