First ‘Suicide Squad’ Trailer is Bonkers in All the Right Ways

The first look at James Gunn’s take on the crew of dysfunctional super no quite heroes is here – and it’s fantastic.

The Suicide Squad is finally in the right hands – James Gunn’s hands. The 2016 movie was a flop due in part to some (ok, a lot of) decisions made in the editing room. This new movie isn’t really being seen as a sequel or prequel, it’s more of a re-imagining. I’m glad that the misfit anti-heroes are getting a fresh start with a DC that’s not grasping at straws like it was five years ago. A behind-the-scenes sneak peek was released at FanDome last year that shows off the craziness of filming.


Now we get to see finished shots with a classic James Gunn soundtrack in the official nsfw red band trailer…


Will Smith is out, but there are some familiar faces. There are also a ton of new ones, this cast is huge – Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, Joel Kinnaman, John Cena, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Michael Rooker, Flula Borg, David Dastmalchian, Daniela Melchior, Steve Agee, Mayling Ng, Peter Capaldi, Alice Braga, Pete Davidson, Nathan Fillion, Sean Gunn, Storm Reid, Taika Waititi, Joaquín Cosío, and Juan Diego Botto. And this guy…



I am really excited about this. The cast is great, it looks like it’s got the attitude/humor down, and it’s got epic (and appropriately goofy) fights and monsters. It’s also debuting when it’s expected that going to a theater could actually be safe. I want the big screen with Dolby experience for this one, so I’m crossing my fingers.

The Suicide Squad explodes into theaters and HBOMax on August 6.
