Following its magazine covers and new photos, Entertainment Weekly has debuted eleven brand-new character portraits from David Ayer’s upcoming “Suicide Squad” film featuring all they key cast members.
Additionally, Ayer has talked about the pressure and expectations for the film saying he hopes he can deliver what the fans want:
“Two years ago Suicide Squad was a tertiary [DC property]. No one knew anything about it. It was a cool little playground, and I was going to go make my movie. Now it’s like the hype bus. All of the attention has swung onto it, and it has to carry a lot more weight than it was ever intended to. I think it can sustain it. But it’s a lot of pressure. You definitely feel the pressure.”
In social media buzz, the film is generating more than any remaining film this year with a lot of excitement. The first tracking figures for the film, which will give us an idea of the potential box-office, will be released in the next fortnight. The movie itself opens August 5th.
