The Suicide Squad review – a slick meeting of sick minds

A convict task force dispense gleeful mayhem in this stylish reboot from a director with the perfect sewer aestheticAfter one botched attempt to bring The Suicide Squad to the big screen, with the dourly competent David Ayer at the helm, this time DC Comics stumbled upon a more successful formula. The key: a director with a taste for anarchy, who crawled out of the same toxic sewer sludge as most of the characters. And in James Gunn, who cut his teeth working for gonzo shocksploitation productio...

Release The Ayer Cut: How Zack Snyder Proved Alternate Cuts Have Value in a Streaming Age

I’m confused about this whole Ayer Cut thing. For those unaware, David Ayer directed 2016’s Suicide Squad … or, originally directed it before Warner Bros. (in response to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s “tepid” box office) decided to rework the movie as a comedy, ala Guardians of the Galaxy. So, instead of the dark villain ensemble teased in the original Comic-Con trailer: We got a more flamboyant, colorful remix featuring jokes, gags, and more jokes that catered to the studio’s desire t...

David Ayer Discusses The Ayer Cut of Suicide Squad, Congratulates James Gunn

Suicide Squad director David Ayer took to social media on Thursday to share his perspective on the 2016 film, torching the studio in the process and claiming that his original cut of the film was far different than what the final product ended up being.   RELATED: The Suicide Squad Poster: They’re Dying to Save the World In a three-page letter sent out on Twitter, Ayer distanced himself from both Warner Bros.’ original cut of the film, and a “10 week director’s cut” that has also popped up, say...

7 Disneyland rides made into movies, and 7 more possible projects

While many Disneyland attractions are based on films, a few have made the journey in the opposite direction — starting as theme park rides that became major motion pictures. The upcoming “Jungle Cruise” is the latest entry in Disney’s ever-growing catalog of attempts to turn theme park attractions into film franchises — with most of them until recently becoming fabulous flops rather than breakout hits. The new “Jungle Cruise” debuting Friday, July 30 will bring the classic 1955 Disneyland ride t...

The Suicide Squad Is How You Pull Off a Spectacular Plan B

The Suicide Squad review – eyeball-blitzing supervillain reboot

Guardians of the Galaxy’s James Gunn is a good directorial fit for the humour and freaky violence of DC’s bad-guy jamboree DC’s new Suicide Squad movie announces itself as different from the coolly received first film from 2016 simply by adding “The” to the title, maybe sneakily trying for an unacknowledged rebrand or reboot. James Gunn, also in charge of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, is brought on board as director and co-writer. This second Squad outing (if you don’t count last year’s stan...

‘The Suicide Squad’ Review: James Gunn Stages a Do-Over with Destructive Style

“The Suicide Squad” is cunningly scuzzy, disreputable fun. It’s being advertised as a movie “from the horrifyingly beautiful mind of James Gunn,” and as much as I love “Guardians of the Galaxy” and enjoyed most of its sequel, I can’t say that I ever thought of James Gunn as having a horrifyingly beautiful mind. It […]

‘The Suicide Squad’ Star Margot Robbie Calls ‘The Suicide Squad’ the Greatest Comic Book Movie Ever

Director James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is coming out in a little over a week, and Harley Quinn herself — Margot Robbie — has nothing but high praise for the film. But of course she would, right?

‘The Suicide Squad’ Featurette Promises a Lot of Characters Are Going to Die

Get ready to see every single character in The Suicide Squad die! Okay, that’s clearly an exaggeration. But the upcoming film really is leaning hard into the fact that seemingly everyone is expendable. In a new The Suicide Squad featurette, director James Gunn talks about how the studio gave him carte blanche to kill pretty much any character in the flick, and that was a type of freedom he relished.

James Gunn Has Talked to Marvel and DC About a Harley Quinn and Groot Crossover Movie

In the best crossover concept I’ve heard since last week’s Blade/Underworld idea, James Gunn wants to make a Harley Quinn and Groot crossover movie. I’m always a fan of crossing the streams and mixing up IPs, and Gunn has plenty of experience with both of these. The director has worked on both Marvel’s The Guardians of the Galaxy and DC’s The Suicide Squad. Apparently he likes the idea of mixing the two so much that he’s even spoken to the honchos in charge of both franchises. If anyone woul...

‘The Suicide Squad’: 5 Things We Learned From James Gunn About the Supervillain Blockbuster

The Suicide Squad isn’t quite the movie that you’re expecting. Oh, sure, James Gunn’s latest superhero blockbuster is as funny, violent, cynical, and chaotic as its red-band trailer indicates. But it’s not just a bloody good time. Amid all of the mayhem, there are moments of genuine emotion. Many of the action scenes are harrowing, not comedic. Gunn plays the biggest character beats completely straight, infusing The Suicide Squad with both tragedy and heart. “This movie really was about just ma...

‘The Suicide Squad’ Early Buzz: Hilarious, Violent, and Surprisingly Heartfelt

James Gunn has done it again, folks.

Early reactions to The Suicide Squad are out, and critics are praising the Warner Bros. comic book film (which is not a sequel to David Ayer’s 2016 Suicide Squad) for its comedy and incredible violence, but also...

Apologies for bringing up a painful memory, but we all remember Jared Leto’s Joker, right? The pale guy with silver grills, neon green hair, and a grating laugh?

Well, if you haven’t heard the good news, by the grace of James Gunn, he will not be making an appearance in the new iteration of The Suicide Squad.
