Suicide Squad Hall H Trailer (2016)

Trailer for Suicide Squad, being called the Soundtrack Remix, was released at Hall H during San Diego Comic Con. Besides promoting the film, the preview also announces the pre-order of Suicide Squad: The Album, which gives instant digital downloads of a number of songs including "Heathens" (Twenty One Pilots), "Sucker for Pain" (Ambassadors) and "Purple Lamborghini" (Shrillex, Rick Ross).

The anticipation for the film didn't exactly spike until after Batman v Superman disappointed critics and (some) viewers alike. Warner Bros, learning from what some thought were mistakes in BvS, quickly re-huddled and decided re-shoots were in order for Suicide Squad in hopes of making it less dark in ominous and more fun.

Though the news could have been a dent in the film's marketing trail, the estimated opening weekend haul currently stands at about $115 million or more, which would earn it the record for the largest opening ever for August. Who currently holds the title? Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy with $94.3 million. Warner Bros may have been bummed about BvS at least critically -- financially, no -- but they have to love knowing that this underdog film might just take it to Marvel for box office glory.

At least, we can only assume.

Suicide Squad Hall H Trailer Screencap

All of the previous trailers for Suicide Squad have been insane with their use of sound editing, musical selection and musical cues. If there was ever a master class on how to make a trailer, Suicide Squad would be deserving of a study. And, since music has been so important, it really shouldn't come as a surprise that Warner Bros would sneak in one more trailer that features some original music from the soundtrack.

With less familiarity, this is obviously a harder to task to achieve when it comes to drawing your audience in with music. But, once again, even when the music -- especially the third track -- doesn't seem to fit very well, it is edited in such a way that it matches the visuals beautifully.

I have always been more excited for Suicide Squad than Batman v Superman, shortly after the film's first trailer and long before BvS ever made it into theaters. My anticipation is at an all-time high, so fingers crossed that Warner Bros follows through.
