IMAX and Warner Bros have provided us with the countdown to Suicide Squad to exclusively premiere on /Film. I still think the IMAX countdown is one of the best demos of 3D and surround sound in theaters today, and as you probably know, over the last couple years IMAX has been customizing their countdown pre-show video for some of the bigger movie blockbusters. They first did this with Godzilla in 2014 which included the iconic Godzilla roar over the IMAX logo. IMAX received a great fan reception to this and have experimented with it on a few other films such as Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation and Furious 7. The latest customized IMAX countdown video was created for Suicide Squad, which hits theaters on August 5th 2016. But you don’t have to wait until then to see the countdown. Hit the jump and check it out right now.
Suicide Squad IMAX Countdown
IMAX worked with agency OneNinth and Warner Bros to create the countdown leveraging assets from Suicide Squad’s campaign. For those of you who haven’t seen the previously customized IMAX countdowns, I have included them below for your viewing enjoyment. As you’ll see, the Suicide Squad countdown is the most elaborate yet. I love that IMAX spends the extra money to create these customized videos to get moviegoers excited about a big event film, especially since those seeing the countdown have already purchased their tickets. I guess it just adds to the IMAX experience.

Written and directed by David Ayer, Suicide Squad stars Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne, Adam Beach and Karen Fukuhara. Here is the official plot synopsis:
It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
SUICIDE SQUAD will be released in 3D and 2D in select theaters and IMAX on August 5th 2016.Cool Posts From Around the Web:
