Suicide Squad trailer

This past weekend was a big one for superhero movies. Not in the sense that any of them actually opened in theaters (alas, we’re still stuck with Fantastic Four), but in the sense that a whole bunch of next year’s superhero movies have just wrapped shooting.

But while the cast of Captain America: Civil War celebrated at a bar in Leipzig and the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse relieved Montreal of its entire supply of Red Bull, the Toronto-based cast of Suicide Squad indulged in a sweeter treat. Stars Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney stopped by a little girl’s lemonade stand to help her raise money for charity.  Read More »

Suicide Squad Trailer

Forget the Avengers, the Justice League, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men. Cinema’s most tight-knit superpowered crew is the cast of Suicide Squad, as evidenced by the fact that the actors have elected to give each other matching “SKWAD” tattoos. Not get matching tattoos, like from a tattoo parlor — actually give them to each other.

Suicide Squad characters

One of the buzziest trailers to come out of this year’s Comic-Con was Suicide Squad. As Russ put it, the footage teased “a viciously detailed film, with a real eye for keeping things grim and weird.” It won the interest of fans and non-fans alike. Which is all well and good for Warner Bros. — but if you fall into the latter category, you might’ve found yourself as confused by the trailer as you were intrigued.

While characters like Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman are familiar to just about everyone on the known planet, that’s definitely not the case with Suicide Squad. Fortunately, with over a year to go until the film’s release, there’s plenty of room to get your bearings, and with our help you’ll be caught up in no time at all. Hit the jump for our rundown of the Suicide Squad characters. Read More »

Z for Zachariah

Margot Robbie finds herself at the center of her own post-apocalyptic love triangle in the first trailer for Z for Zachariah. But being that she may literally be the last woman on earth, the stakes are a bit higher than your usual Team Peeta vs. Team Gale shenanigans.

The trouble starts when Ann (Robbie) makes the startling discovery that another person (Chiwetel Ejiofor) has survived the mysterious catastrophe that left her alone. The two of them forge a bond, but it’s disrupted when yet another person (Chris Pine) enters the mix. Watch the first Z for Zachariah trailer after the jump. Read More »

suicide squad spoilers

For the past few weeks, the Internet has been plastered with photos from the set of Suicide Squad. We’ve seen Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomarang. More famously, we’ve seen Margot Robbie in multiple Harley Quinn outfits, Jared Leto as the Joker, the Joker’s car, the Joker’s car being chased by the Batmobile, and even Batman himself.

These were huge images from a movie that’s still over a year away. Many people thought some major surprises had been spoiled. Apparently, that’s not the case. The always-open writer/director of Suicide Squad, David Ayer, took to Twitter to reassure fans that nothing has been ruined. Read More »

Flirty smiles, longing looks, and conflicted emotions ensue. Watch the latest Focus trailer after the jump.
