Warner Bros. has unleaded the first red-band trailer for James Gunn’s long-awaited DC film The Suicide Squad, and holy shit! This movie is going to rock the world of DC fans! It looks like an insanely awesome film, and I can’t wait to see it!
WB gave Gunn complete creative freedom on this movie, and it looks like he took that freedom and ran with it, possibly making one of the best and craziest DC movies yet. There’s no doubt that this movie is going to be a blast! I couldn’t be more thrilled by what this first trailer has to offer.
Fans better sit down and buckle up because Gunn is going to be taking us on one hell of a wild ride in the DC universe!
Here’s the synopsis for the film:
Welcome to hell — a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.
Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and- destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.
The film has previously been described as a 1970s-style war movie. It has also been said that the Suicide Squad team will be heading on a mission to Corto Maltese so that they can recover something from a former German prison and laboratory. Producer Peter Safran previously explained:
“There they have to destroy a Nazi-era prison and laboratory named Jotunheim, where political prisoners were held and experimentations took place.”
