Will Smith Takes Center Stage in New ‘Suicide Squad’ Trailer
The highly anticipated Suicide Squad film hits theaters in just two weeks. With hype building, Warner Bros. Pictures adds a little more fuel to the fire with a new trailer focusing on Will Smith's character Deadshot.
The trailer opens up with a comic book style intro featuring Smith saying, "Don't forget we're the bad guys." From there, clips of Deadshot in action are shown before running down his official bio for those who unfamiliar with his DC Comics origins. Deadshot, whose real name is Floyd Lawton, is a human arsenal with shots that are lethal at 4,000 meters.
Will Smith's starring role in Suicide Squad won't be the only hip-hop presence in the film. Common also has a part in the movie while the official soundtrack is stockpiled with some of the biggest names in hip-hop.
Kevin Gates, Eminem and G-Eazy are all slated to have solo records on Suicide Squad: The Album. Lil Wayne, Logic, Ty Dolla Sign and Wiz Khalifa's monster collaboration with Imagine Dragons and The X Ambassadors titled "Sucker for Pain" serves as the soundtrack's lead single. Action Bronson teams up with Mark Ronson and Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys for a track called "Standing in the Rain." And Rick Ross will handle the album opener via his "Purple Lamborghini" collab with Skrillex.
The Suicide Squad soundtrack is scheduled to drop on Aug. 5, the same day the film debuts. If you are hip-hop and comic book fan, that Friday is going to provide you with plenty of entertainment.
