‘Suicide Squad’ trailer gives us everything we want
Jared Leto, Margot Robbie pop in debut reel.
At long last, our first official look at the ragtag assembly of a movie that is Suicide Squad is finally here. Our first impression: It’s heavy on the Queen, fuselage, and fun—but kinda light on plot.
Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn and Jared Leto’s Joker steal the show handily from Will Smith’s Deadshot, but the whole ensemble seems to be working hard to distract us from asking the hard questions—mostly by smashing things.
Of course we’re pretty sure DC could just film two hours of Harley and the Joker being cutely psychotic and fans would pack the theater all day.
And let’s face it, with plenty of time to go before the film’s Aug. 5 release date, it’s nice to know we’ll have plenty of mystery to keep us occupied—even if it’s the mystery of what Suicide Squad is actually about.
