'The Suicide Squad': Idris Elba And Bloodsport-Centric Trailer Sneakily Surfaces

The brand-new trailer for DC Comics/Warner Bros.' The Suicide Squad has snuck on the web and it features a lot about Idris Elba's character of Bloodsport and showcases his daughter, played by Storm Reid.

The trailer had an unconventional release, with Shadow and Act confirming with the studio that it appeared YouTube pre-roll ads early Tuesday morning before the official video dropped. Shared by James Gunn, who said the film's cast leaked it, the video appeared on YouTube in full as an unlisted video titled, "THE SUICIDE SQUAD – Early Access Trailer Do Not Share."

The film stars Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, Joel Kinnaman, John Cena, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Michael Rooker, Flula Borg, David Dastmalchian, Daniela Melchior, Steve Agee, Mayling Ng, Peter Capaldi, Alice Braga, Pete Davidson, Nathan Fillion, Sean Gunn, Storm Reid, Taika Waititi, Joaquín Cosío and Juan Diego Botto.

It is a follow up to 2016's Suicide Squad and is directed and written by James Gunn.

The description reads:

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. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.
