At this point, I'm confident in saying that we will not see a better marketing campaign this year than the one that WB has put together for Suicide Squad. Sure, they're definitely taking some beats from Guardians of the Galaxy and other recent hits. The use of Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz" highlights the 70s musical theme that started with Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" in the last trailer, and riffs on what Guardians did so well. And yet, it's working. The excitement for this movie is through the roof and after being skeptical for the longest time, I'm starting to think that this just might be my most anticipated movie of the summer. The character moments look great, the action has a colorful pizzazz that Batman v Superman lacked, and I just love the overall style of the film. With a cast of phenomenal actors, this has the potential to be something really special.
Suicide Squad stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Cara Delevingne, Ben Affleck, Scott Eastwood, Ike Barinholtz, Common, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Adam Beach, Karen Fukuhara, Jay Hernandez and Viola Davis and will hit theaters on August 5.
