Trailer Alert – Suicide Squad
One of the best things about award shows is that movie studios usually break open their wallets and debut some new footage during the commercial breaks. Last night was the MTV Movie Awards, and with that came a new, extended look at Suicide Squad. I haven’t seen Batman vs. Superman yet, but I’m glad that Suicide Squad looks more like ‘Deadpool’ than ‘Batman vs. Superman’. Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale pulled off the perfect dark, brooding superhero movie, and I don’t think we’re far enough removed from that trilogy to embrace a similar film. I think that’s why Deadpool did so well both financially and critically. It was fun and self deprecating, and I think that’s something that a lot of fans can get behind. I understand that people invest a lot of time and money into these movies, but a lot of the time there is nothing worse than multi millionaire actors and directors taking themselves too seriously. Suicide Squad just looks like a ton of fun, and I’m pumped to watch the likes of Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Joel Kinnaman take on the human psychopath Jared Leto. Spectacular cast, fun plot and a whole lot of action is going to equal a shit ton of money at the box office this summer.
