New Suicide Squad Poster Is Crazy and Eye-Popping
Worst heroes, best poster.
While DC's last movie, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, went for a moody promotional campaign, the upcoming Suicide Squad has gone in the opposite direction. The supervillain team-up hits theaters in August, and the latest poster is seriously eye-popping. Check it out below:
Suicide Squad tells the story of a group of death row supervillains, who are employed covertly by the US government to perform dangerous missions in return for reduced prison sentences. It is directed by Fury's David Ayer, and stars Jared Leto as the Joker, alongside Will Smith as Deadshot, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Ben Affleck will also make a cameo as Batman.
The film will have a heavy presence at next month's San Diego Comic-Con. Last week, Warner revealed a wide range of themed events and promotional activity, in addition to appearances from the film's ensemble cast.
While Leto's unusual acting methods have already had quite a bit of attention, last week Ayer revealed that his own rehearsal techniques were no less extreme.
"The rehearsal was very intense,” he told Yahoo! Movies. "It wasn't a normal rehearsal, we'd talk about their lives, their history, and really got them to open up as people to each other. I also had them fight. I had them fight each other. You learn a lot about who a person really is when you punch them in the face. It gets rid of a lot of the actor stuff.”
Suicide Squad is released on August 5, 2016.
