Lord of the Rings Gets a Suicide Squad-Style Fan Trailer

"Shall I describe it to you, or would you like me to find you a box?"


Lord of the Rings and Suicide Squad don't have much in common, but both do feature a band of misfits coming together to complete an important task. One YouTuber has made this similarity very apparent in a Suicide Squad-style trailer for the Middle-earth trilogy.

The fan-made trailer above, created by YouTuber The Unusual Suspect, features scenes from all three Lord of the Rings movies set to Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" (via io9). The recently released Suicide Squad trailer featured the same song.

The trailer showcases many of the trilogy's more comedic moments, but it also features some of the more action-packed scenes. It's accompanied by Suicide Squad-style text that spells out the words "KICK ORC BUTT" and "RING SQUAD" at the end.

You can check out the real Suicide Squad trailer right here. It hits theaters on August 5.

If you don't know who the Suicide Squad is, here's everything you need to know before you see the movie. The Kinda Funny team also created a video on GameSpot highlighting things you may have missed in the trailer.
