The long wait is over and The Suicide Squad has arrived. Not to be confused with Suicide Squad from a couple of years ago. This is a sequel/relaunch and obviously much, much better. James Gunn wrote and directed this new film, and I’m as big a James Gunn fan as everybody else. So I had high hopes for this film and all of them were met and/or exceeded!
Movie Rating: 9/10 – Great.
Take a bunch of unimportant C and D-list supervillains from the annals of DC Comics and put them on a team of black ops specialists is a great idea. They’ve been making fun Suicide Squad comics for years. The team has shown up in the DC cartoons and the DC live action shows. They’re a pretty impressive crew. So it’s a shame that The Suicide Squad has bombed at the box office. We’re definitely never getting a sequel now. C’est la vie.
Join me after the jump for my thoughts/review of The Suicide Squad. And expect FULL SPOILERS for the movie.Read the rest of this entry
This was a great week for movie trailers! Two of the biggest upcoming superhero movies decided to just thrill us with some brand new trailers this week. Seriously, out of nowhere, Marvel dropped a new trailer for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings just last night! Where did this beauty come from?
I won’t spoil everything we just saw in that trailer, but holy cow! I don’t think anybody saw that cameo coming! That should be an exciting moment! And we got some stronger, fuller looks at the Ten Rings themselves, and Shang-Chi. All of that looks great to me!
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings comes to theaters on Sept. 3, just in time for my birthday!
Next up is a new trailer for The Suicide Squad by James Gunn. I thought we had plenty of trailers for this film, but this new one is great, too!
Interesting new details for Idris Elba’s Bloodsport…though it does seem he really is just a rebooted Deadshot. We’ll see when the movie comes out. Should still be fun. And King Shark might just be the standout character of this movie. Can’t wait for this one either!
The Suicide Squad comes out on Aug. 6!
Earlier this week, we got a red band trailer for The Suicide Squad movie by James Gunn. Red band means it’s not fit for our innocent eyes. Fortunately for all of us, DC and Gunn have released a green band trailer that’s safe for work and our innocent eyes! And it’s just as much fun!
This movie looks great! Both trailers are a ton of fun. All the characters look to be a ton of fun. This whole thing looks like a big, fun action romp of a movie that we’re all hopefully going to love! I’m going to get the hype up regardless!
The Suicide Squad comes to both theaters and HBO Max on Aug. 6!
DC and Warner Bros. took two tries to make a Justice League movie that people liked, so it appears they’re going to try a second time for a Suicide Squad movie! Huzzah! At least this time we know for sure it’s going to be good, because it’s written and directed by James Gunn! The man who made the Guardians of the Galaxy into a household name of comedy is making The Suicide Squad!
Since it’s a Red Band trailer, you’re just gonna have to click over to watch it on YouTube. That’s not my rule.
Trailer looks really good to me! The dialogue is funny, the characters seem pretty great, and Margot Robbie is still killing it as Harley Quinn. I trust James Gunn completely and I am on board for The Suicide Squad! Not to be confused with Suicide Squad.
The movie comes to theaters on Aug. 6, and then to HBO Max about a month later, it seems.
