If you’re heading to the theater or planning to watch it at home, The Suicide Squad runtime has been revealed.
As with most DCEU films, The Suicide Squad is going to break the two-hour mark, and it’s even going to surpass the first film’s run time. While the theatrical cut of Suicide Squad clocked in at 2 hours and 3 minutes, James Gunn has revealed The Suicide Squad will hit 2 hours and 12 minutes.
The film recently earned an R-rating for “strong violence and gore, language throughout, some sexual references, drug use, and brief graphic nudity.”
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.
