Awesome Suicide Squad
Raise your hand, get out your nom noms, and read a book because the breakout star of James Gunn’s Suicide Squad is getting a premium-format action figure from Hot Toys. This 1/6-scale Nanaue is a spot-on sculpt of Stallone and Agee’s loveable lug and includes articulated arms, wrists, and waist, plus four interchangeable hands.
Screen Junkies immolates one of the most disappointing movies of the year. Watch as they hilariously comment on its incredibly apt title, expose the script written for people with short term memory loss, and come up with the best name for Jared Leto’s joke of a performance.
DC Comics hypes up its big release with a series of brief clips which walk us through each of the film’s antiheroes, from the insane but beautiful Harley Quinn, to the murderous Deadshot, to the OMGWTFBBQ El Diablo. Even government agent Amanda Waller seems to be a badass.
Like chocolate and peanut butter, these DC Comics villains and The Pixies are two great tastes that taste great together. Theme Park Monsters mashed up the trailer for Suicide Squad with both the classic 1988 track, and the haunting piano remake by Maxence Cyrin.
