A brand-spankin’ new Suicide Squad trailer, subtitled “Blitz,” premiered after tonight’s MTV Movie Awards and we here at Heroic Hollywood have scoured it with a fine-tooth comb to bring you the very best moments and Easter eggs.
Heroic bossman Umberto Gonzalez broke the news of the trailer on last week’s Heroic Insider (seriously, if you’re a film geek, it’s must-watch entertainment) and confirmed its airing today via Entertainment Tonight. As he said on Heroic Insider, the trailer is cut to the jaunty “Ballroom Blitz,” hence the subtitle.
It works in two ways: a) by continuing a trend set not only by this film’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” trailer (the breakdown of which Umberto also broke exclusively), but initiated by Guardians of the Galaxy‘s famous “Hooked on a Feeling” trailer and b) by contrasting well with Ayer’s grimy, macho tone.
It’s also a good indicator of the less existential, more irreverent tone Warner Bros. is seeking with its Suicide Squad reshoots and mandate to make Justice League a “crowd-pleaser” (although the fact that pleasing the crowd only now appears relevant is bit concerning).
