The new “Suicide Squad” trailer has dropped! My lack of excitement for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice had been unfairly rubbing off on Suicide Squad. Funny how a trailer and some great posters can change my sentiment around. Consider me hyped!
“I can’t wait to show you my toys.” The trailer has a great balance between bits of dialogue, things exploding and showing off the crazy and freaky members of the squad.
When Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody started playing I wasn’t sure it was going to work but it did. The different segments of the song fit into the different tones of each scene. The piano accompanying the part where Harley talks about the voices in her head was playful which added to the humor. And of course the hard rocking bombast fit perfectly with the action clips.
Speaking of Harley, I like that Margot Robbie didn’t go overboard with a super thick accent and a high pitched voice. I mean, the voice actresses from the animated shows are so memorable and iconic but for this live action movie it might have been too much of a caricature.
Great marketing. For anyone not knowing much about Suicide Squad this trailer tells us exactly what this movie is going for. Just not sure why Jai Courtney’s character keeps on yelling.
One more thing about Bohemian Rhapsody, I couldn’t help but to think of Wayne’s World. Schwing!
