(CNN) — The latest trailer for "The Suicide Squad" is here, thanks to some cast members who released it a little early, according to director James Gunn. The trailer features the squad being recruited by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) on a mission to destroy a Nazi-era prison and fighting Starro, a telepathic starfish.
Australian actor Jai Courtney introduces a new "early access" trailer from Warner Bros. for director James Gunn's forthcoming The Suicide Squad, in which Courtney reprises his role as Captain Boomerang from 2016's Suicide Squad. It's got quite bit of new footage and some small additional details (such as why Idris Elba's Bloodsport is in prison in the first place). Each of the three trailers released so far has been better than the last, so we have high hopes for this film.
I neither loved nor hated the first trailer for The Suicide Squad, DC’s mulligan on their villain team-up movie, but the second trailer is definitely winning me over. I wasn’t super sold on Idris Elba in that first trailer, but this new trailer focuses on his character, Bloodsport, and we get more of a sense of who he is and what Elba is doing. He’s joining the squad to help his daughter get out of trouble, and while the family-oriented motivation feels a bit like a repeat of Will Smith’s Deadshot in the first movie, I LOVE the tidbit that Bloodsport hospitalized Superman with a Kryptonite bullet. It does kind of feel like we should be watching an entire movie just about that confrontation, but WHAT a fun character detail.
DC and Warner Bros. just dropped a new trailer for James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, and between all those Rick Flag wisecracks and King Shark “bruh” moments, fans might've caught a few brief glimpses of Harley Quinn sporting a new fire-red getup that Gunn says came straight from a fan-favorite DC video game franchise.

For eagle eyed comics fans, trailers for The Suicide Squad have had the villainous writing on the wall for some time now. There have been glimpses of enemy soldiers sporting strange coverings on their faces, and a giant, tentacle-like foot crushing a car. Oh, and a full glimpse of a “kaiju” villain on a monitor-screen in the background.
When Joel Kinnaman found out Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn was taking over the Suicide Squad franchise, he was nervous. It wasn’t the stunts that scared him, or the prospect of returning to the world last directed by David Ayer. It wasn’t that he was one of just a few actors returning and that, as Rick Flag, he would once again have to play team leader. No: It was the jokes. Kinnaman, a Swedish-born actor who has been working steadily in American film and television since his breakout role as detective Stephen Holder in The Killing a decade ago, was afraid to be funny.

Joel Kinnaman is reflecting on what went wrong with the critically panned 2016 film Suicide Squad. "It had great characters.... I thought the first 40 minutes of the film was f---ing great, and then there [were] conflicting visions and it just didn't end up being what we all hoped it was, you know? It didn't feel like the movie that we hoped we were going to make," Kinnaman told Variety's Just for Variety podcast, after discussing his recent screening of the upcoming August 2021 release, The Suicide Squad.

James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is inching closer and closer to its August release date, and the director is hyping up fans in anticipation for it. The Suicide Squad will be rated R and is promising some bloody action from its star-studded cast. In the midst of hyping up the movie, Gunn has revealed how the cast of the film found out about their on-screen deaths, and the director has even surprised Joel Kinnaman with the completed movie. Now, new merchandise for the movie has shown off a new weapon for John Cena’s Peacemaker, and Gunn definitely approves.
An infamous DC movie is finding new life on Netflix. Suicide Squad was initially a punching bag for both fans and critics when it debuted in theaters in 2016. Despite earning over $750 million at the global box office and even winning an Oscar (for Best Makeup and Hairstyling), it received pretty savage reviews and fans were disappointed with its messy plot. In the years since, though, it’s definitely become a cult favorite. Something shown by how it’s proving popular on streaming right now.
