All we need now is the trailer for “King Shark Only”.
In case you couldn’t see the trailer for the hyperviolent and gloriously gonzo red band of James Gunn‘s Suicide squad For whatever reason (your mom is around, you’re at work, you hate fun, etc.), don’t worry about your giant shark head one more moment. The decidedly much more SFW green band trailer is here, teasing the same wild action and tongue-in-cheek humor with only the slightest bit of edited-for-TV glitz.
Gunn’s movie, something of a sequel to the 2016 original, once again assembles a team of unhinged supervillains to go on an undercover mission for the government in exchange for reduced prison sentences. The new trailer is imbued with gleefully chaotic energy, showcasing the film’s incredible cast and teasing some darkly comical action scenarios, including a scene where King Shark (voiced by no less than Sylvester Stallone) simply devours a whole grown man upside down. Margot Robbie she’s back as harley quinn, how is she Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Joel kinnaman as Rick Flagg, and Viola Davis as Suicide Squad mastermind Amanda Waller.
Meanwhile, some lovely new faces have joined the crew, including John Price as the supreme and fool peacemaker, David Dastmalchian like Polka-Dot Man, Michael rooker as Savant, and Pete Davidson like Blackguard. (Much of the marketing for the film has focused on the idea that a solid number of this team will not see the end of the film and, judging from the trailer, I bet Davidson specifically will not last long.) Take a look at your main adversary: the DC Comics supervillain Starro, who is, for lack of a better word, a giant starfish.
You can check out the new trailer below. And while you’re at it, you can also jump into the red band trailer and check it out too. (Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone.) Suicide squad hits theaters and at HBO Max on August 6.
