THE SUICIDE SQUAD Is Now Available To Stream On HBO Max; New Poster And TV Spot Released
James Gunn's The Suicide Squad has been made available to stream on HBO Max a few hours earlier than scheduled! Check out an awesome new international poster and critics TV spot after the jump...
The Suicide Squad was originally scheduled to hit HBO Max at midnight, but James Gunn's R-rated DC Comics adventure has been made available to watch on the streaming service a few hours early. So, even if you don't feel ready to return to the theater just yet, there's no excuse not to watch the madness unfold from the comfort of your own home.
Warner Bros. has also shared a new Korean poster for the movie, which sees the members of Task Force X charging into battle in a hail of bullets.
It's certainly an eclectic mix of characters, and in a new interview with DCComics.com, Gunn explains why he wanted to assemble such a diverse group of villains for this new take on the team.
“I really wanted to create, with the primary team, people that seemed like they were from completely different movies,” he said. “As if this is coming at the end of ten years of a dumb Peacemaker TV show and a scary Saw-like show with Ratcatcher and a cool, hip, grimdark Bloodsport movie, and put them all together in one thing and see these people that are in and of themselves each a different genre. Ratcatcher kind of came naturally from that. I liked the fact that her name is Ratcatcher II. It makes it an even sillier thing because we've never met Ratcatcher.”
Check out the poster below along with a new critics TV spot.
