Suicide Squad (2016) Preview

Suicide Squad (2016) Preview

We are just weeks away from the most anticipated supervillain movie of the summer! (that's right this is NOT a superhero movie)

Warner Bros' DC Comics big budget bonanza is hoping to take down the Marvel stronghold that currently grips the cinema setting globally. Can this really live up to the tagline as the Anti-Avengers? Let's take a look.

Why we should be excited:

Jared Leto as The Joker: Leto has always commanded strong, non-conventional performances, shying away from the normal career path of most actors. This style has served him well even winning him an Academy Award in 2012 as Best Supporting Actor in Dallas Buyer's Club. Seeing The Joker role reprised after the incredible performance by the late Heath Ledger is going to be one to watch.

Batman is in this movie! Yes, that's right, while Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice may have taken a proverbial beating by the critics, Ben Affleck's performance as the caped crusader was the stand out in that film. Seeing him as an alleged bad guy from the bad guys POV in this film is something I cannot wait to see!

Margot Robbie and Will Smith: Two movie heavyweights both have lead roles in the story. While Robbie appears to be in every picture at the cinema these days (her latest playing Jane in The Legend of Tarzan July release), it is widely believed her role as The Joker's former shrink and on/off love interest, Harley Quinn is going to show new sides to this blonde beauty. An insane, violent and creepy criminal.... Will Smith as Deadshot is an interesting choice, while he has not had the best of luck at the movies of late, this film should see him back in the limelight for all the right reasons. And we can finally forget that shocking flick Focus which co-starred Smith and Robbie once and for all... I'm sure they are trying to!

Bring. It. On.

Roll call: Who actually are the Suicide Squad?

Deadshot: Will Smith
The Joker: Jared Leto
Harley Quinn: Margot Robbie
Captain Boomerang: Jai Courtney
Enchantress: Cara Delevingne
Killer Croc: Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje
El Diablo: Jay Hernandez
Slipknot: Adam Beach
Katana: Karen Fukuhara
Rick Flag Jr.: Joel Kinnaman

FUN FACT: Each member of the Suicide Squad has an explosive device planted in their necks to ensure their loyalty. The devices were made by Wayne Enterprises.... And yet another reason for the team to hate Batman.

Want to watch this film in style?

Our good friends at Gaucho will be continuing their Gaucho Premieres series at The O2 in London on Saturday August 6th. Tickets and info available here. It is a cracking way to enjoy this film!

Taken from Gaucho website:

Each Gaucho Premiere begins with a welcome cocktail (this month with Reyka Vodka) followed by a specially created sumptuous two-course menu featuring our delicious Argentine grass-fed beef with accompanying sides, not forgetting our traditional South American salmon ceviche - perfectly paired with sommelier selected wines. Once finished you will head over to our fabulous private cinema, where the magic of the silver screen will commence.
