THE SUICIDE SQUAD Assembles in First Trailer and Poster

The Suicide Squad
First look at the upcoming comic book movie.

Directed by James Gunn, superhero sequel The Suicide Squad sees Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney and Viola Davis return from the first film. They're joined this time by the likes of John Cena, Sylvester Stallone and Idris Elba as Task Force X assembles another squad of miscreants for an adventure deep in the jungle of a remote island.

The Suicide Squad is in UK/ROI cinemas this August.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.
