It's been a few months since the first proper trailer for Warner Bros.' SUICIDE SQUAD arrived for consumption, and with the release of BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE (reviewed here) now behind us, it's time to get audiences ready for what will be the next installment of the DC Extended Universe. I think the film looks great, but it's probably a good thing to start getting casual audiences primed for the fact that this is a film that exists in the same world as Ben Affleck's BATMAN and Henry Cavill's SUPERMAN... and we'll see more of Batman in this film, he being what most agreed was a highlight of BvS. While the last trailer rocked to QUEEN's "Bohemian Rhapsody," this one pairs our anti-heroes with the music of SWEET's "Ballroom Blitz." Is there a music supervisor on this film that has the 1992 soundtrack to WAYNE's WORLD sitting around? If we get a Harley Quinn-centered trailer soundtracked to JIMI HENDRIX's "Foxy Lady," I think we'll have a definitive answer. Take a look...

SUICIDE SQUAD stars two-time Oscar nominee Will Smith (“The Pursuit of Happyness,” “Ali,” upcoming “Focus”) as Deadshot; Tom Hardy (“The Dark Knight Rises,” upcoming “Mad Max: Fury Road”) as Rick Flagg; Margot Robbie (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” upcoming “Focus,” the “Tarzan” movie) as Harley Quinn; Oscar winner Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club,” “Alexander”) as the Joker; Jai Courtney (“Divergent,” upcoming “The Water Diviner”) as Boomerang; and Cara Delevingne (“Anna Karenina,” upcoming “Pan”) as Enchantress.  Ben Affleck will also appear as Batman.

The film will hit theaters on August 5, 2016.
