Thank you MTV Movie Awards! Not only do you entertain us, but you give us new trailers for movie we can’t wait to see. Case in point — this new Suicide Squad trailer.
It looks like they’ve learned some lessons from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice — mainly, make it fun. Fun is more than awesome action sequences and large scale battles. Fun requires the characters to have a bit more personality, to see some interesting character dynamics, characters that are aware of how cool it is to have super powers and have fun with it themselves. It appears that Warner Bros. has heard the complaints and is doing their best to get it into our heads that this film, the Suicide Squad, will be fun.
Obviously, there’s a lot of fun to be had with Harley Quinn, played by Margot Robbie. With moments like her holding her mallet, her saying, “I’m known to be quite vexing” and her pouring shots for everyone in the bar, we get a better sense of just how well Robbie nails the character.
We’ve also got some great character moments like Boomerang (Jai Courtney) annoying Katana (Karen Fukuhara) to the point of almost being decapitated and then asking, “you got a boyfriend” as well as Deadshot (Will Smith) getting into a shouting match with Diablo (Jay Hernandez) and then backing down, saying, “I was just trying to get you there. No hard feelings right? We good.”
In fact, they make it look as if he tries to save Dr. Harleen Quinzell after she falls off of a building, as he dives after a woman in blue that resembles pictures we’ve already seen of Margot Robbie.
From director David Ayer (“Fury,” “End of Watch”) comes “Suicide Squad,” starring Oscar nominee Will Smith (“Ali,” “The Pursuit of Happyness”), Oscar winner Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club”), Margot Robbie (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Focus”), Joel Kinnaman (“Run All Night,” “The Killing”) and Oscar nominee Viola Davis (“The Help,” “Doubt”).
It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Written and directed by Ayer based on the characters from DC Comics, the film also stars Jai Courtney (“Insurgent”), Jay Hernandez (“Takers”), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (“Thor: The Dark World”), Ike Barinholtz (“Neighbors”), Scott Eastwood (“Fury”), Cara Delevingne (“Paper Towns”), Adam Beach (“Cowboys & Aliens”), and Karen Fukuhara in her feature film debut. It is produced by Charles Roven and Richard Suckle, with Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Colin Wilson and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.
