If you can think it, you can find it. Which is certainly the case for this epic new trailer created by youtuber The Usual Suspect, who has masterfully mashed together two super fandoms in a single video! The original Star Wars and DC's upcoming Suicide Squad. These mashups, of which this particular youtuber is well known for on his channel that currently has over a hundred-thousand subscribers, are a clever way of bringing together the most iconic features of film and TV today. Youtuber Robert Jones crafted a super awesome display with his mashup of Suicide Squad with Guardians of The Galaxy.
You can check out the Star Wars version below! And be forewarned, it's absolutely hysterical! You may want to grab a tissue.
Jones and Suspect are hardly the first to take Suicide Squad's trailer to a whole new level. In late March, comic website Funny Or Die released a spoof of their own where they parodied the film by including the Suicide Squad B-Team. These members included Mrs. Doubtfire, Winifred Sanderson, Beetlejuice, Jim Carrey's The Grinch, Dr. Evil, and Gollum from Lord of the Rings. Check out that, in all its stupendous gloriousness, below.
I have to say, Suicide Squad is probably receiving the best free marketing campaign I have ever seen, thanks to these wonderful and gut-wrenching videos made by the dedicated fans over at Youtube. If these haven't gotten you excited to see the movie, I don't know what will. Anticipation for the film can barely be contained as it is, I know I'm overflowing with it. The colorful cast of characters, the overall plot, and of course, Margot Robbie, who wouldn't be?
Warner Bros. is certainly not letting the hype die down, they've already given the go ahead for a Harley Quinn solo film and a sequel to Suicide Squad. Hopefully the film will live up to the hype and show us just how much better bad guys are at besting the box office.
Suicide Squad opens on August 4, 2016.
