Plot Synopsis:

In 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.

This massive ensemble cast stars Viola Davis, Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, Jai Courtney, Sylvester Stallone as the voice of King Shark, John Cena, Joel Kinnaman, Peter Capaldi, David Dastmalchian, Daniela Melchior, Michael Rooker, Alice Braga, Pete Davidson, Nathan Fillion, Sean Gunn, Flula Borg, and Mayling Ng. The Suicide Squad hits theaters and on HBO Max on August 6th, with select theaters hosting early screenings a day prior.
