The makers of The Suicide Squad have dropped the trailer of their upcoming superhero action adventure and it promises to be one movie fans don’t want to miss.
Written and directed by James Gunn the Warner Bros. Pictures’ soon-to-release movie features a collection of the most degenerate delinquents in the DC lineup. The action takes place in Belle Reve, the penitentiary with the highest mortality rate in the US. This hell-hole is the home of the most notorious super-villains, who will do anything to get out — even if it means joining the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X.
And assembling together, for their do-or-die assignment this time are Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and the fan favorite Harley Quinn.
The squad’s mission? Search-and-destroy Jotunheim, a secret prison and laboratory that held political prisoners and conducted experiments! Armed heavily, they are dropped (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Here the squad finds itself trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn. With only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement, as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself).
