I am a major DC TV fan, Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl. All favourites. Some of the DC films however have failed to capture me the way the TV series have… until now. Suicide Squad has done it. They had me at “It’s taken some work…” the perfect combination of personas portraying key characters within the DC Comics world. The winding of the clock and the eerie, haunting music, perfect way to bring intrigue.
The dark qualities within the trailer, the grading actually, really helps audiences, I’d say connect, with the trailer. The colour in amongst the shadows really works, almost in a Sin City sort of way. Again, notice a link there.
Margot Robbie steals the show. From what we can see in the trailer the Aussie actress perfectly channels Harley Quinn. And I’m in awe with Jared Leto as the Joker. It’s simple, but it works; the green hair, the purple glove, the laugh.
People have been talking about these trailers, anticipating the upcoming release and I have to say judging from what I’ve heard, it’s thanks to these actors and the transformation not just in the physical but mental and emotional. You really can see it. They’ve completely immersed themselves into the world, and will most definitely take viewers along for the ride.
Oh, and I’ve been loving how movie trailers have been using rocking songs to work alongside the content, in the case of Suicide Squad we have the perfect addition of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody.
Make sure you check back for more trailers and updates.
