SUICIDAL TENDENCIES: The First Suicide Squad Trailer

Kind of odd that the release of a trailer featuring the worst of the worst was spoiled by people who couldn't follow basic convention rules. Still good on Warner's for releasing the HD version quickly after and putting the perps low-res plans of internet infamy to rest.

Suicide Squad features our first live-action looks at Deadshot (Will Smith), The Joker (Jared Leto), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Katana (Karen Fukuhara), my favourite: El Diablo (Jay Hernandez), the amazingly cast Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), and a few others who if the film lives up to it's namesake, will probably be killed before the final scenes (I mean they've got to be right - it's the damn Suicide Squad)!

Only bad thing about the trailer, it tries to do the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer thing by having a sad kid sing the Bee Gees' hit I Started A Joke. I get it, but it didn't work for Ultron and it's even more out of place here. If I could just mute that part - I'd be smiling.

 What do you think? 


  1. doesn't look very promising to be honest.

  2. I know, Shlomo. But I was all mopey about Guardians too and it turned out to be pretty amazing. This might be one of those that surprises me. I doubt it. But then, I doubt all of them. It's like grading on a curve. No one's getting everything they want, but hey, at least it didn't totally suck.
    Just once, I'd like to be thrilled like I was when Toby McGuire did Spiderman...and everything was just perfect.

    1. well i'm afraid GOTG wasn't so amazing for me beyond a few laughs it just wasn't my thing. what I was pleasantly surprised with last year was the Robocop reboot. the new Terminator however was some what under whelming it was about what I expected based on the previews. i'm gonna hold off on The Ant-Man until I've gotten some feed back on it.
      but right now i'm far more preoccupied with IDW starting a new ROM and Micronauts series next year. if Ant-Man and the SS turn out to be better then the previews suggest that would be cool but if they kinda suck i'm not gonna loose any sleep over it. now what does look promising to me is the new Fantastic Four movie talk about a movie franchise that was in serious need of a reboot!

    2. FF is definitely the one I'm waiting to see. Feels like a Sci-Fi/ Planetary vibe on the whole thing, which I can definitely sink my teeth into.

  3. Hey guys! The best thing for me about Suicide Squad is the Wall's casting and news that Jada Pinket Smith has stuck her hand up for Vixen. I just watched Magic Mike XXL with a whole lot of mates and if the role she plays in that is anything to go by, she'd be amazing.

    Going to see Ant-Man tomorrow, so will try and type a review as soon as my fingers can spare the time.
