We’re about a week from seeing whether or not Suicide Squad is as fun as the trailers have made it out to be, hopefully making it the perfect remedy for those who didn’t enjoy Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. There’s not much buzz on the supervillain spin-off of the DC Comics cinematic universe just yet (the embargo on those who have seen it so far breaks in the morning on August 2), but we’re definitely hoping for the best.
Continuing to tease the arrival of Suicide Squad, a new featurette has just surfaced online, and this one has tons of new footage from the film as well as some great glimpses behind the scenes of the set (which we visited last year while they were in production). The cast talks about the experience of working with David Ayer, and there’s plenty of talking heads with the filmmaker himself and some of the other integral members of the crew. Watch the new Suicide Squad featurette below. Read More »

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.

When Lucasfilm announced earlier this month that Alden Ehrenreich would lead the Han Solo anthology film, they were just confirming what fans already knew — the trades had revealed the casting months ago. But not every report and rumor pans out so nicely. For example, there’s been a lot of speculation that Ehrenreich’s Han Solo could cameo in this winter’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. However, director Gareth Edwards has gone on the record to shut down the rumors.
Meanwhile, over at Warner Bros., Suicide Squad director David Ayer is battling a pesky and persistent fan theory of his own. Many have wondered if Jared Leto‘s Joker could be Jason Todd, whose defaced costume was seen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but Ayer insists that’s not the case. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We’re quickly approaching the release of Suicide Squad and Warner Bros. is no longer being stingy with the footage. Not only have they released eight new clips from the film, they have released eight new clips that touch on characters, details, and plot points that have been specifically left out of the various teasers and trailers released so far. So yeah, please watch all of the clips below, if that is what you care to do (I did). But if you feel like you’ve seen enough and want to go in a little fresh and can happily wait another week and a half, feel free to opt out.

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.

When Jared Leto‘s take on the Joker was initially revealed, it resulted in the loudest, angriest fanboy temper tantrum to hit the internet since, well, Heath Ledger’s take on the Joker was initially revealed in the early days of marketing for The Dark Knight. Since then, most everyone has seemingly come to terms with the fact that the new Clown Prince of Crime is a heavily tattooed maniac from the streets who looks nothing like any previous version of the character. At least everyone has stopped screaming and has started quietly muttering to themselves.
We won’t be able to give Leto’s performance any final marks until we actually see him in action in Suicide Squad next month, but we can watch this new promo that puts the spotlight on the character and jump to some hasty conclusions. You know, if that’s your thing.
