Suicide Squad finally arrives in theatres this weekend and early reviews of the film have already hit the Internet. Initial reviews appear to be mixed on the David Ayer project. Some critics going to extremes to describe their dislike for the comic book film. The cast is now responding to the negative reviews.
Will Smith, Deadshot, during an interview with Reuters explained that he is looking forward to hearing from the fans.
“I think people had expectations that may have been different, but I’m excited for the fans to get to vote.”
Fellow Squad member Cara Delevingne also addressed reviews, holding nothing back.
“The critics have been absolutely horrific, they’re really, really horrible. You know, I just don’t think they like superhero movies.”
This isn’t the first time that a DC movie has come under fire before released nationwide, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice went through a very similar pattern.
Despite its mixed reviews, Suicide Squad remains the most anticipated movie of the summer and is currently targeting an opening between $130 million to $140 million. The Wrap is reporting that Squad has already become the top pre-seller on Fandango for August. This tops James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy and F. Gary Gray’s Straight Outta Compton.
It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Karen Fukuhara, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood and Cara Delevingne, Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5, 2016.
