The Suicide Squad trailer has finally arrived and it’s time to see what James Gunn has in store for us.

After endless teasing, the first The Suicide Squad trailer is finally here to give us a taste of this film. And let us be super clear, it is very not safe for work.

As a lead-up to the release of the trailer, James Gunn also shared the first movie poster. The director has promised that this film is heavily influenced by The Dirty Dozen, and that is evident in this poster. He said of the poster similarity, “I sent that exact poster to the marketing guys before we even started shooting.”

Additionally, a colored poster and an assortment of character posters have been released.

“Welcome to hell — a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.”

“Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and- destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.”

The Suicide Squad is due to hit theaters and HBO Max on Aug. 6, 2021.
