Here’s the first trailer for the DC sequel directed by Warner Bros. James Gunn Suicide squad which has all the trademarks of the Guardians of the Galaxy Filmmaker from a great retro hit single (Steely Dan’s “Dirty Work”) to prankster superheroes, only more raunchy, as the red band label underscores.
The movie is not rated R (yet), but we heard that Gunn’s script definitely leaned a lot toward that rating, and you can see some of that in the trailer footage that arrived on Friday.

For example, enjoy the jokes between Bloodsport by Idris Elba and Peacemaker by John Cena:
“You are the leader, you are supposed to be decisive,” says the Peacemaker from Cena in Elba’s Bloodsport.
“And I’ve decided that you should eat a big bag of f ***,” Bloodsport responds.
Peacemaker doesn’t stop: “If this whole beach was completely covered in p *** and someone said that I would have to eat every p *** until the beach was cleaned up for freedom, I would say: ‘No problemo! ‘”
The discussion as the group trudges through the jungle causes Alice Braga’s SolSoria to ask, “Why would someone put penises all over the beach?” Peacemaker jokingly responds: “Who knows why crazy people do what they do?”
Unlike the dark and moody tone of Gotham in David Ayer’s 2016 Suicide squad and Zack Snyder DC canon, Gunn’s sequel is bright and colorful, and appears to be primarily set in a Latin American country where the revamped Suicide Squad shipped.
Several new characters appear here: Michael Rooker’s Savant (who appears to have a bomb planted in his head by Viola Davis’s Amanda Waller), Pete Davidson’s Blackguard, Peter Capaldi’s The Thinker (who is mocked by the Suicide gang who does certain things, like owning custom license plates like Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn Threatens, Dies), and Steve Agee doing double duty as Waller’s No. 2 John Economos and silly King Shark. Overall, there’s a ton of Gunn fun here that we can’t wait for.
Suicide squad hits theaters and on WarnerMedia’s HBO Max streaming service on the same day, August 6, due to the pandemic. The first film opened for $ 133.7 million at the domestic box office, setting an opening record for August; went on to raise $ 325.1 million in the United States and $ 746.8 million worldwide.
