Warner Bros. has released a new official trailer for The Suicide Squad. The upcoming DC Films movie will be a standalone sequel to the previous DC Extended Universe film SuicideSquad.
Another good trailer. I’m already sold on this version of Task Force X from writer-director James Gunn. I know some folks around the SAW offices want it to be a little less jokey, but the film still looks like it will have some dark moments. I mean, Gunn can’t make every death in the film be the butt of a joke, right? RIGHT?!
Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.
The Suicide Squad hits theaters and HBO Max on August 6, 2021.
