‘Suicide Squad’ Becomes Fandango’s Biggest August Pre-Seller Ever; Plus New Images

Despite its negative reviews, Suicide Squad remains the most anticipated movie of the summer and is currently targeting an opening between $130 million to $140 million. In fact, The Wrap is reporting that the movie has already become Fandango’s top pre-seller for the month of August, topping previous record holders such as James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy and F. Gary Gray’s Straight Outta Compton.

Meanwhile, Fandango has also released an awesome illustrated poster for the movie, which was created by artist Robert Bruno. You can check out the poster below along with a bunch of never-before-seen images from the David Ayer-directed movie, as well as an alternate design for Jay Hernandez’ El Diablo.

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.
