It has been a disappointing year in cinema as films were delayed due to COVID-19. With that in mind, it's nice to have some good news about a movie getting an earlier release date. The Suicide Squad has just been confirmed to premiere a little earlier than expected and it just happens to be on director James Gunn's birthday.
Gunn confirmed the news by sharing a new poster on his official Twitter account. He also added an exciting caption to his post. Check it out below.
"For those of you who can't wait, #TheSuicideSquad is coming to you a day early in the US - see it on the evening of Thursday, August 5 - which also happens to be my birthday," Gunn wrote. He then added the hashtag #InSquadWeTrust.
We're loving the new poster and how it strongly suggests that Amanda Waller is the big boss of Task Force X in the film. The new release date is also awesome news considering that each day feels like a long time. Although it's just a day earlier, it also happens to be a special day and you won't need to buy Gunn a birthday present.
The Suicide Squad is undoubtedly one of the most highly anticipated films of the year considering that it is Gunn's first directorial effort since he was removed from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in 2018. Since then, the director has been reinstated into the project but has decided to work on the Suicide Squad spin-off show titled Peacemaker before starting work on the Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel.
The Suicide Squad is scheduled to premiere in the UK on July 31, 2021. It will then be released in the US and on HBO Max on Thursday, August 5, 2021.
