The Suicide Squad - Movie Poster - 02 - Featured - 01

The Suicide Squad U.K. release date has moved up by one week which is going to set up a minefield of spoilers for fans in other parts of the world.

It’s not unusual for superhero movies to release a week or so earlier in the U.K., but you also don’t typically have a movie with a potential body count quite this how. James Gunn recently answered a fan on his Instagram stories about how many characters will die, and he said, “Almost all of them.”

With this in mind, The Suicide Squad U.K. release date is now set for July 30, and the U.S. and other countries will see it on Aug. 6. Spoilers for which characters live and which ones die are going to be rampant, and a nightmare to avoid. If you truly wish to avoid spoilers for this one, your best bet is going to be to leave social media for a week.

The Suicide Squad synopsis

“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 in the U.S., and will be in theaters in the U.K. on July 30.
