Between a sneak peek and a red-band trailer—not to mention the two Guardians of the Galaxy films—you should already have a pretty good idea of what you’re getting with writer-director James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. But if you’re looking for more assurance that you’ll get a colorful, soundtrack-heavy superhero movie featuring a criminal ensemble, hit-and-miss comedy, and, ultimately, some heart, here it is in another The Suicide Squad trailer.
In this one, we see that Idris Elba’s Bloodsport seems to be the pathos at the center of the film: He’s got to follow a team of B-, C-, and D-list comic book supervillains into certain death to save his daughter or something. There’s Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, a guy who throws polka-dots, a guy who can tear his arms off, more than one animal-man hybrid, and a bunch of other dopes—many of whom are sure to be gruesomely pruned off as the film goes on. They fight a giant starfish thing! Should be fun enough, yeah?
The soft reboot hits theaters and HBO Max August 6.
