SUICIDE SQUAD

At last year’s Comic-Con, we got our first look at David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad. The response to the trailer was enthusiastic, and since then, we’ve seen no shortage of footage, most recently the new extended TV spots highlighting the villains in the ensemble film. If you want another look at the comic book movie, though, then Warner Bros. has unveiled another look at Ayer’s picture just for you.

Below, watch the final Suicide Squad trailer.

Suicide Squad opens in just a few weeks and the best thing I can say about the movie’s marketing is that I have no idea what to expect. The trailers have been offbeat and impressive. The character designs are funky and completely out of left field. It looks hugely different in scale and intent from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which suggests a burgeoning DC movie universe that won’t be afraid to try different things. There’s a lot of stuff here that has me excited, which does a fine job of tempering the aspects that I’m dreading.

Above all, I’m most curious to see Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, the Joker’s psychopathic girlfriend who finds herself sprung from prison and forcibly recruited into a special ops team composed entirely of super villains. A new clip from the film shows her in action and let’s just say that she can give Captain America a run for his money in the “fighting bad guys in an elevator” department.

Suicide Squad TV Spots

Yesterday, Warner Bros. released an extended promo introducing audiences to Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), “one of the scariest characters in the movie” and the mastermind who puts the Suicide Squad together. One of the leaders of that squad is Deadshot (Will Smith). Smith, who’s probably most famous for playing heroes, stars in David Ayer‘s film as the assassin/supervillain. The newest promo tells you all you need to about the character, including the fact only his friends call him by his real name Floyd.

SUICIDE SQUAD

Suicide Squad is packed with characters and stars who could command a film on their own, but part of the fun is seeing this chaotic mess of personalities clash and come together and clash again. We had the opportunity on set to interview two of them together: Margot Robbie, who plays iconic fan favorite Harley Quinn, and Jai Courtney, who plays a version of Captain Boomerang that you’ve definitely never met before. The actors discussed their stunts, the “skwad” camaraderie, Jared Leto‘s Joker, and — of course — the possibility of sequels. Read our Suicide Squad Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney interview below.

SUICIDE SQUAD - Joker and Harley Quinn

Even your average non-geek will have a pretty good idea of who the Justice League or the X-Men or the Avengers are. But in comparison, the characters of Suicide Squad are a relatively unknown bunch. Aside from Harley Quinn, none of them are really what you’d call household names. And even if you do know these guys from the comics, the versions in the movie are all-new. No one’s met these iterations yet.

So during our set visit, we got the skinny on all the new bad guys and not-so-bad guys, from Amanda Waller to Deadshot to (of course) the Joker. Get all the new Suicide Squad character details below, including info on their backstories, costumes, and storylines.

SUICIDE SQUAD

Warner Bros. expanded its DC cinematic universe in a big way this spring with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but fan reactions were mixed. Many complained the franchise was too dour, too grim, too serious. But Suicide Squad could just be the film to change all that.

When I visited the Toronto set of Suicide Squad last July, it was just days after the very first trailer had killed at Comic-Con — absolutely slaughtered, really. Suddenly, people who’d never even heard of the Suicide Squad a month ago (which is to say, pretty much everyone who doesn’t self-identify as a DC nerd) was dying to know more about this playful, colorful group of baddies. Who were these weirdos? What were they going to do in the DC universe? On day 68 of the film’s 98-day shoot, I joined a group of other journalists on set to find out.  Read More »

Suicide Squad

Earlier this year we got two superhero movies in which the good guys are battling good guys: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War. The two films weren’t much alike, but they were both relatively somber affairs, full of anger and pain and sorrow. But what happens when you’ve got bad guys fighting even worse guys? You get something like the anarchic glee of the latest Suicide Squad international trailer.

Directed by David AyerSuicide Squad stars Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, who has the genius idea to force a bunch of supervillains to go on a dangerous mission for the U.S. government. Margot Robbie stars as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, and of course Jared Leto as the Joker. Watch the new Suicide Squad international trailer below.

The Legend of Tarzan final trailer

With The Legend of Tarzan set to swing into theaters July 1, Warner Bros. is making one final push to get you into theaters. An extremely buff Alexander Skarsgård stars as iconic hero, who’s since left his jungle roots behind to settle down as John Clayton III, Lord Greystroke, in 19th century England. He’s happily married to Jane (Margot Robbie), and life is comfortable if a bit dull. Then he’s called back to the Congo thanks to a convoluted plot masterminded by the evil Captain Léon Rom (Christoph Waltz). The only way to survive is to embrace his animal side once more.

Craig Gillespie

So far, The Finest Hours is one of the biggest box office bombs of the year. Disney expected a loss of $75 million on the Craig Gillespie-directed drama. That miss followed up his Fright Night remake and Million Dollar Arm — two studio movies that, like The Finest Hours, also underperformed. It appears as if none of these misfires are slowing Gillespie down, though, because the Lars and the Real Girl director has just signed on to helm I, Tonya, the biopic about disgraced ice skater Tonya Harding.

Below, learn more about the project, which will star Margot Robbie.
