The first full trailer for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad plays like WB/DC’s answer to Guardians of the Galaxy. Still don’t like the songs these trailers keep using but it’s pretty well edited. The film looks fun, but also kinda looks like a garbage fire. The marketing for the film has been trying way too hard to be the “punk” alternative to the other hero movies out there (“This ain’t your average superhero movie!”), and I’m hoping all the style isn’t trying to cover up a big pimple.
I’m hoping the actual film ends up better, and I am looking forward to this. It’s well cut enough that the film looks like it’s got so much personality that even the standard drywall of a human being, Jai Courtney, even looks like he’s having a good time.
Suicide Squad opens August 5th.
