Remember what I said last week about the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane being one of the best pieces of studio marketing I'd seen in a very long time? Well, I've found a better trailer. I was already pretty excited for Suicide Squad- after all, it was my #7 most anticipated film of 2016. However, if I had seen this trailer before making my list, there's a good chance that DC's superhero team-up would have been much higher on my list. Whoever cut this trailer and whoever had the idea to set it to Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" deserves all of the money in the world. Seriously. This is one of the best-edited trailers in years and I absolutely adore the tone that it strikes. With just one trailer, Warner Bros. has shown us that their most unique property yet will be sadistically funny, but also filled with spectacular action. Everything about this movie looks terrific. Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn is an awesome bit of casting, Jared Leto's Joker is very intriguing and heck, even Jai Courtney looks good here. I've watched this trailer countless times since its debut on Tuesday night. It's that good. I really can't wait for Suicide Squad. If DC gets this right, I'll be officially sucked into their cinematic universe.
Suicide Squad is directed by David Ayer, stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jared Leto, Scott Eastwood, Ben Affleck, Cara Delevingne, Ike Barinholtz, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Common, Adam Beach, Karen Fukuhara, Jim Parrack and Jay Hernandez and will debut on August 5, 2016. I'm pretty hyped for this one. Don't let me down guys.
