Watch the trailer for James Gunn's 'The Suicide Squad'
Warner Bros. Pictures’ has just released the trailer for their upcoming DC Comics adaptation, The Suicide Squad. Hailing from Guardians of the Galaxy‘s James Gunn, the new film continues the story of several characters featured in David Ayer’s 2016 Suicide Squad, infusing the new adventure with Gunn’s trademark blend of offbeat humor and over the top violence. Check out the Suicide Squad trailer in the player below and scroll down to the bottom of the page to see the film’s new poster design.
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-anddestroy 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 stars Margot Robbie (Birds of Prey), Idris Elba (Avengers: Infinity War), John Cena (Bumblebee), Joel Kinnaman (For All Mankind), Jai Courtney (Divergent), Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who), David Dastmalchian (Ant-Man and the Wasp), Daniela Melchior (Parque Mayer), Michael Rooker (Guardians of the Galaxy), Alice Braga (Elysium), Pete Davidson (The King of Staten Island), Joaquín Cosio (Spider-Man: Into the SpiderVerse), Juan Diego Botto (The Europeans), Storm Reid (The Invisible Man), Nathan Fillion (The Rookie), Steve Agee (Brightburn), Sean Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy), Mayling Ng (Wonder Woman), Flula Borg (Ralph Breaks the Internet), Jennifer Holland (Brightburn) and Tinashe Kajese (Valor), with Sylvester Stallone (Rocky), and Viola Davis (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom).
