Some cool stuff I noticed in new Suicide Squad trailer
Two good things came out of MTV Movie Awards last night - Charlize Theron was awarded the trophy for Best Actress for her work as Furiosa in Fury Road (if we lived in the better world she would have also got Academy Award for that one) and new Suicide Squad trailer premiered, loaded with yet again great song choices and awesome footage.
Here are some things that I noticed and some of my speculation based on new and previously released footage:
Harley chasing, I'm assuming, The Joker on her bike after he brainwashed her in Arkham, which leads to....
Harley jumping or being thrown into acid and Joker jumping after her
that shot of Harley falling....
is followed by that shot of Batman jumping. Now that is clearly not from the same sequence. But later on in the trailer there is this:
a shot of the car that Joker and Harley are escaping in from Batman. Clearly the car falls into water and Batman follows it which leads to:
Batman rescuing Harley and carrying her to Batmobile!
As for Harley falling:
clearly something or someone rescues her.
I'm assuming that this is the same moment - Harley gets taken by Batman and before or after he has a showdown with the Joker
Harley's mallet is in. So great!
He has a stuffed unicorn!
Joker threatening the character played by Common. Whatever goes down here is probably not good for that guy, seeing how this is followed by the shot of Joker laughing and surrounded by guns from trailer 2
Some signs of flirtation between Harley and Deathshot
BONUS: Look how many mini umbrellas Harley put in the drink!
It is impressive how much footage was shown and how difficult it is to stitch the whole story together at the moment. Hell, we don't even know who the villain is! My guess would be that the villain is some space goo in which case the entire weight of success of the movie lies in how fun and how funny it will be.
So far it looks like Deadpool to me - half of jokes land, half don't. Harley is overused when it comes to dialogue, there should be more done with her expressions and physical comedy, though the little girl pout moment at 1:02. was very good, very Harley. The marketing sure uses Robbie's sex appeal a lot - first having her bend over in previous trailer, now showing her change which is a smart move, marketing wise. So many guys are gonna go see this in 3D and one cannot really blame them.
And we still only got a little bit of the Joker, hopefully the film hiding more than those scenes we can guess he has in the film (Joker and Harley car chase/escaping from Batman, Joker and Common scene/Harley dancing with a chain, Joker torturing Harley in Arkham, Joker transforming Harley - there was also photo of Joker and Harleen suggesting we will see her treating him). As for rumoured reshoots there is so much misinformation but it seems the initial info that they are doing those because the last trailer had all the jokes could not be less true - plenty of new funny bits in this new trailer. Also David Ayer tweeted this so this is very reassuring.
