Woot! Each time DC releases a new Suicide Squad trailer, they top themselves. And yes, unlike the “yeahokay I’ll watch Batman v Superman because nerd” feeling I got with BvS, I’m truly stoked for the Squad. Why? Harley, natch. But also for the cinematography, which keeps the dark vibe of the current DCU but is vivid enough to actually enjoy looking at without squinting (or trying to push through the grit that must come standard with every DC film.)
There’s more Joker here, and even a Bat. But my favorite thing is how they managed to get some cool tunes in on the action. Trailer #3 has “You Don’t Own Me” by Lesley Gore and Sweet’s “Ballroom Blitz”. Who doesn’t love 60s girl power ballads and glam rock? And they work perfectly. Wanna see? Here ya go. Suicide Squad opens August 5th, and it can’t get here soon enough.
