In just under a week’s time director David Ayer’s hotly anticipated antihero ensemble movie Suicide Squad will finally be hitting cinemas across the globe. The film will see iconic DC villains such as Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Enchantress (Cara Delevingne) and Katana (Karen Fukuhara) come together on an expendable mission to save Midway City.
But what if Suicide Squad had a different lineup of characters? What if legendary director Quentin Tarantino was at the helm of the movie? What would that look like? Well the folks over at Loot Crate Productions have done just that (via Collider) and produced a trailer that envisions a mashup of Tarantino and Suicide Squad. The trailer pays homage to Tarantino’s bold film-style and filmography whilst adhering to David Ayer’s vision for Suicide Squad.
The result is absolutely magnificent. Check out the genius parody trailer below:
Now that is a film we’d most definitely see. Django, Kill Bill and Jules sharing the same screen? Yes please. For now we’ll just have to make do with Suicide Squad which opens on August 5.
Suicide Squad synopsis:
Suicide Squad follows the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and takes place in a post-Superman world where the government tries to determine how to respond in the event that an alien with more villainous intentions visits Earth. Ruthless intelligence officer Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) offers to recruit society’s worst criminals, those possessing lethal skills and superhuman powers. Her first target: the possessed archaeologist June Moone/Enchantress (Cara Delevingne).
When Midway City is threatened by a powerful mystical enemy, Waller’s plan gets the go-ahead. She cuts deals with the whole squad of prisoners: Deadshot (Will Smith) gets his Second Amendment rights reinstated, Harley (Margot Robbie) is set free from her cage, Diablo (Jay Hernandez) steps out of his fireproof prison, Boomerang (Jai Courtney) and Slipknot (Adam Beach) each get to wield their signature weapons once more, and Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) emerges from the swamp. The only condition is this: Obey orders or die. This is strictly enforced by squad leader Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), the samurai Katana (Karen Fukuhara), and of course the explosive devices – developed by Wayne Enterprises – inserted into their necks. However, the arrival of the tatted-up Gotham City mega-criminal, the Joker (Jared Leto), might doom the mission thanks to his plan to reunite with his true love, Harley.
