The new clip gives fans of the dysfunctional group, extra reason to cheer as it promises an action-packed adventure/ rescue mission unlike any other. The first trailer of ‘The Suicide Squad’ was unveiled on Friday and it features plenty of familiar faces making their DCU debut.
Gunn dropped the trailer on his Twitter handle and wrote, “Our first trailer. Warning: gore & adult language & supervillains & adventure & heart. Can’t wait to see it in a theater with all of you on August 6. #TheSuicideSquad.”
The R-rated upcoming project sees Gunn, known for Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ films, delve into the world of DC for the first time.
The trailer has all the elements to make it a massive box office hit: promising performances by all the actors, enthralling dialogues, drama, and epic amounts of action.
Viola Davis also returned as government agent Amanda Waller, while Joel Kinnaman again served as Rick Flag and Jai Courtney will play Captain Boomerang.
The trailer, which features powerful glimpses of all the actors, has director James Gunn written all over it.
The main story is still unclear, but the trailer opens with a mission to rescue Robbie’s Harley Quinn that proves unnecessary, as Harley already got herself out of whatever scrape she found herself in.
However, one of the biggest revelations in the trailer is that Sylvester Stallone is providing the voice for King Shark. There is also the giant, colourful starfish kaiju who goes on a rampage at the end of the trailer.
The nearly-three-minute-long trailer promises a super-fun take on the titular villains-turned-heroes team. There is a coronavirus pandemic reference, multiple punchlines, and exciting new additions to the DC family.
From powerful background music that complements the pace of the trailer to some intense performances, the trailer features it all. And it’s safe to say that their fans are in for a visual treat.
A colourful tone, playfulness, crazy yet interesting characters that have seemingly been ripped right from comic-book panels, it appears to be the comic-book movie to watch this year.
‘The Suicide Squad’ is something of a sideways sequel of the 2016 film ‘Suicide Squad’. The ensemble for the movie also boasts David Dastmalchian as Polka-Dot Man, Alice Braga as Sul Soria, Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher 2, Nathan Fillion as T.D.K., Mayling Ng as Mongal, Michael Rooker as Savant, Peter Capaldi as Thinker, Sean Gunn as Weasel, and Flula Borg as Javelin.
This is Gunn’s first feature since 2017’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’. He is expected to begin production on a third ‘Guardians’ film in London later this year.
‘The Suicide Squad’, which promises to be a fun, icky, and very chaotic good time, is slated to release on August 6 in theatres and on an OTT platform.
