"Oh, I'm not gonna kill ya, I'm just gonna hurt ya, really really BAD"
The Suicide Squad official trailer is finally here! With it, we finally get to see Jared Leto’s acting, along with a small tattoo of Florida on his face(cannot unsee). Check it out below!!
This official trailer was not supposed to be released today, but as fans captured and leaked the footage from San Diego Comic Con, Warner Bros. had to react. Here is their statement:
“Warner Bros. Pictures and our anti-piracy team have worked tirelessly over the last 48 hours to contain the Suicide Squad footage that was pirated from Hall H on Saturday. We have been unable to achieve that goal. Today we will release the same footage that has been illegally circulating on the web, in the form it was created and high quality with which it was intended to be enjoyed. We regret this decision as it was our intention to keep the footage as a unique experience for the Comic Con crowd, but we cannot continue to allow the film to be represented by the poor quality of the pirated footage stolen from our presentation.“
– Sue Kroll, President Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures
Hollywood seemingly hasn’t yet learned that showing a trailer to an auditorium of 7,000 screaming fans will result in a few of them getting away with mobile phone take aways to leak online. Star Wars did it best via Star Wars Celebration, whereby they showed the latest trailer for The Force Awakens to the fans at the convention, then released the official trailer several minutes later. Do they really expect the footage that they show 7,000 people to never see the light of the internet until they officially release it? How disconnected are they? It’s only been happening since Comic Con has been a thing. What did you think of the trailer? Comment below, let us know, and you can also hit us up via our many social networks.
Jared Leto’s Joker performance at the end of the trailer seems to be an homage to Jack Nicholson’s character in THE SHINING.
