Fans all over the world are loving the first Suicide Squad trailer, but the studio behind the project is not happy. According to Warner Bros., this trailer was supposed to be a Comic-Con exclusive. It was released only for the crowds at the San Diego Comic-Con.
But WB was forced to change their game plan after a terrible pirated version of the trailer was shared online. Sue Kroll, the President of Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution for WB, released a statement on behalf of the studio explaining the incident…
“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.”
Of course, they probably expected something like this to happen. This actually could have been their original game plan. Maybe it secretly worked out perfectly for them.
We know most fans are going crazy over this trailer, and with an impressive cast featuring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie and Viola Davis? This movie is going to be huge. Some critics even claim this trailer is the best comic book movie trailer they have seen in years.
Check it out below. It will hit theaters August 5th, 2016.
