Bloodsport and the Team Unleash Hell in The Suicide Squad Trailer

The new trailer for The Suicide Squad is here! The video offers a closer look at Idris Elba’s Bloodsport and explains how he ended in prison. Superman’s adversary will be forced to lead a team of expendable villains. Together, they will have to save Earth and humankind before an undisclosed menace (it’s Starro!) cancels them. The new trailer also features the rest of the team, including Harley Quinn, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, etc. The story deals light-heartedly with the fact that many of them — if not all — might die during this mission.

You can watch The Suicide Squad trailer in the player below. James Gunn appears to be feigning surprise on Twitter that his actors went rogue and released it early.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Suicide Squad:

“Welcome to hell — a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.

Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and- destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.”

The Suicide Squad will debut in theaters and on HBO Max on August 6.
