Here’s the latest trailer for Warner Brother’s forthcoming movie Suicide Squad starring Will Smith, Jared Leto and Margot Robbie.
The trailer has a fun, anarchic feel and might be just the tonic the studio needs after the disaster which was Superman vs Batman.
The plot for Suicide Squad rattles along like so:
A secret government agency known as “Task Force X,” led by Amanda Waller, recruits imprisoned super-villains to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for clemency and saving the world from an unknown but powerful threat.
Suicide Squad goes on general release on August 5th.
After it was secretly recorded and leaked online following its exclusive unveiling at the San Diego Comic Con last weekend, Warner Bros have now officially released the full and glorious trailer for Suicide Squad.
The movie is written and directed by David Ayer, (Traning Day, Fury), and stars among others Will Smith as Deadshot and Jared Leto as The Joker two members of a special group of super villains which a secret government agency recruits to execute dangerous black ops missions, in exchange for clemency.
There has been a lot of concern by rabid fanboys about the prospect of a Suicide Squad movie but judging from the trailer it looks like they really had nothing to worry about.
Suicide Squad is scheduled for general release on August 5th, 2016.
We’re warming to the prospect of this film simply because we harbour fond memories of the original.
This is the second official trailer for Men In Black 3 and gives us a little more insight to the overall plot:
J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K’s life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him — secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.
The effects look great and the casting of Josh Brolin as a younger Tommy Lee Jones located in the 60s is inspired. Like Mad Men with lasers, count us in.
It’s been ten years since the last one but now Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith return as the Men In Black once more under the direction of Barry Sonnenfeld.
This movie has been plagued with problems, from Alec Baldwin dropping out due to scheduling issues to a bloated budget of $200M due to delays in production. Steven Spielberg resumes his executive producer role and a supplementary cast made up of Rip Torn, Jermaine Clement, (Flight Of The Conchords), Emma Thompson and Josh Brolin all can’t excuse the fact that former Pussycat Dolls front woman Nicole Scherzinger is Will Smith’s love interest. Really? Nicole Scherzinger?
The plot rattles around like so:
Agent J, (Smith), is bouncing around getting alien shit done with Agent K, (Jones), when KABLAMOO, Agent K mysteriously disappears. Next thing J is on the roof of the Chrysler building with some comic book nerd who gives him this fucking time machine watch and tells him to jump off the building and he’ll go back in time to 1969. J is like all ‘fuckdat shit’, but does it anyway and KABLAMOO, he finds himself back in 1969, Marty McFly style, right next to a younger, Don Draper looking K.
A budget of $200m and this is the best alien costume they could come up with?
Well this is disappointing. Being fans of the original book by Richard Matheson the film adaption starring Will Smith, released in 2007 wasn’t, in our humble opinion at least, the worst film ever made. It was certainly engaging enough throughout it’s first hour and the scene with his dog…well…*clears throat and opens a window*.
But the film pretty much came apart when the UV allergic zombie hybrid vampires showed up in all there shitty CGI glory, which makes this test footage video of the aborted version of the originally intended look of the vampires, all the more tragic.
As you can see Hollywood continues to ignore the fact that real actors with first class make-up are a hell of a lot scarier and realistic than computer generated characters. (via Slash Film)
