‘Suicide Squad’ steps in front of the Honest Trailers firing line


When the official trailer for Suicide Squad swaggered out the door to the dulcet tones of Freddie Mercury singing “Bohemian Rhapsody” in January, fans understandably went nuts for it. 

Unfortunately, when the movie finally debuted six months later, we discovered the trailer was way more fun than the actual film itself. That made it a prime target for the Honest Trailers crew, which just dropped a new video to remind us how much Suicide Squad got hilariously wrong. 

“Gear up with a film that we all thought would put the DC Extended Universe back on track, but instead gave us two hours of characters trying to look cool to a soundtrack that feels like someone scanning through a radio dial.”

Ouch. Looks like the Honest Trailers burn factory dialed it up to 11 for this one.
