After debuting last weekend during their panel presentation at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Bros. has decided to officially released the Comic-Con 2015 trailer for their upcoming all-star supervillain group film in “Suicide Squad”, which features the likes of Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and Enchantress as a team of crooks forced to work together by “The Wall” Amanda Waller on black ops missions in exchange for lighter sentences or their freedom.
Here is the trailer in all its High-Definition glory, courtesy of Warner Bros.
In a press release statement also featured in Comic Book.com, WB gave their reasons for the release:
“Warner Bros. Pictures and our anti-piracy team have worked tirelessly over the last 48 hours to contain the Suicide Squad footage that was pirated from Hall H on Saturday. We have been unable to achieve that goal. Today we will release the same footage that has been illegally circulating on the web, in the form it was created and high quality with which it was intended to be enjoyed. We regret this decision as it was our intention to keep the footage as a unique experience for the Comic Con crowd, but we cannot continue to allow the film to be represented by the poor quality of the pirated footage stolen from our presentation.”
-Sue Kroll, President Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures
Suicide Squad will be released in theaters on August 5, 2016.
