suicide squad trailer breakdown

When the first Suicide Squad trailer arrived, we went through the whole thing frame-by-frame to squeeze as many secrets and tidbits out of it as humanly possible.

Jared Leto isn’t a typical work-for-hire actor. Leto doesn’t appear in many movies, and nor does he need to, considering he’s got his Thirty Seconds to Mars gig. When he does decide to act, it’s generally for wildly transformational roles, like The Joker, Mark David Chapman, or The Dallas Buyers Club‘s Rayon. Leto, arguably, is at his best when he’s not under prosthetics or weighing in at over 200 lbs, so the news of him starring in The Outsider, a post-WWII thriller, is both a promising and refreshing decision on the actor’s part.

Suicide Squad Trailer

If you’re one of the DC Comics fans who ended up disappointed by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the good news is that there’s one more film you can look forward to later this year that will expand the cinematic universe and might lessen the blow. Suicide Squad is bringing together a bunch of villains and nefarious criminals from the comic books for a ragtag assembly of unlikely heroes who are tasked with unsavory missions, only so that if they go wrong, no one respectable can be blamed.

Now a new Suicide Squad trailer has surfaced from overseas, showing off some new footage from the comic book flick and keeping things a little more fun and fast-paced than the first trailer by dispatching with the ballad portion of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” a little quicker than the first time around.

The buzz for Suicide Squad was initially unremarkable. Our first glimpse at the film was a shot of Jared Leto as The Joker, which most fans didn’t seem to care for. With the grill and the “edgy” tats, fans weren’t fond of where director David Ayer was taking the character. But once they saw the villain in action, especially in the latest trailer, fans warmed up to Ayer’s “worst superheroes ever” picture. The film is now exhibiting even more signs of promise, as it has enlisted composer Steven Price.

Suicide Squad Trailer Breakdown

You’ve probably already seen the new Suicide Squad trailer that was unveiled yesterday. You may have already seen it a few times because it is one seriously impressive piece of marketing that showcases a tone and style that no one saw coming. Warner Bros. has obviously taken a few cues from how Marvel sold Guardians of the Galaxy to introduce this gang of misfits and oddballs to a wider audience and it works absurdly well. Director David Ayer has cooked up something that takes place in the same world as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but it looks completely different in just about every way.

While the trailer does a fairly good job of establishing the basic premise (the government recruits a bunch of imprisoned DC comics super villains into a task force that is forced to go on dangerous missions), it doesn’t delve into the plot specifics. At the same time, it’s bursting with mysterious images, insane moments, and surprising beats. This thing begs for a frame-by-frame breakdown.

And your wish is my command.

We’ll say this much for the burgeoning DC movie universe – it’s already looking a bit unpredictable. We still have no idea what to make of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a movie that appears to have the plots and characters of a dozen separate film jammed into one package, but we’re certainly intrigued by Suicide Squad. Here is a comic book movie that, conceptually, feels like a gigantic left turn. How do you follow up a movie featuring Superman and Batman and Wonder Woman? How about an adaptation of a mostly unknown comic series about B-tier villains teaming up to take down a bigger threat? That’s bold.

But enough of that. You’re here because the first proper Suicide Squad trailer has arrived. You can watch that below.
