Welcome to Hell – also known as Belle Reve, the prison with the highest death rate in the US of A. Where the worst super villains are held and where they will do anything to get out – even joins the super secret, super shady task Force X. Today’s do-or-die mission? Collect a collection of cons including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then heavily arm them and drop them (literally) on the remote enemy-soaked island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle full of militant adversaries and guerrilla fighters at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them wear…and Amanda Waller’s government engineers in their ears, tracking their every move . And as always, one wrong move and they are dead (at the hands of their opponents, a teammate or Waller himself). If anyone makes bets, the smart money is against them – all of them.
The Suicide Squad sees James Gunn directing a cast that includes: suicide squad returnees Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag) and Viola Davis (Amanda Waller) as well as new DCEU signings Idris Elba, Peter Capaldi, Alice Braga, Nathan Fillion, Taika Waititi, Jennifer Holland , David Dastmalchian, Joaquín Cosío, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, John Cena, Pete Davidson, Tinashe Kajese, Daniela Melchior, Julio Ruiz, Steve Agee, Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn and Sylvester Stallone.
The Suicide Squad is slated to release on July 30 in the UK and August 6 in the US
