One of the X’s biggest entertainers of the year is facing James Gunn in Suicide Squad. Of course, the first movie, from David Ayer, was met with a lukewarm reaction at best, but Gunn coming on board to follow up sparked most people’s curiosity. Titled The Suicide Squad, it’s a much funnier and shrewd game against villains. Today, Warner Bros. The Red-Band trailer to click, and it lives up to that speculation. Actually, this movie looks like a blast. When it arrives in theaters and HBO Max in August, it can be a lot of fun. You can see the trailer at the end of this post …
Here is the official summary from Warner Bros:
From writer / director James Gunn comes the Warner Bros. superhero adventure. Pictures “The Suicide Squad,” which features some of the most degenerate delinquents in DC’s squad.
Welcome to Hell – also known as Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the United States at A. Where the worst bad guys are kept and where they’ll do anything to get out – even join the super-secret and shady task force X. Today’s mission do or die? Collect a bunch of negatives, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin, and everyone’s favorite psychopath, Harley Quinn. Then arm them hard and drop them (literally) on the remote and enemy island of Corto Maltese. Wandering through a jungle teeming with armed enemies and guerrilla forces at every turn, the squad is on a search-and-destroy mission with Colonel Rick Flagg just on the ground to get them to act … and Amanda Waller’s government technologists are in their ears, tracking every move. As usual, one wrong move while they are dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, their teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone is placing their bets, smart money is against them all.
