Suicide Squad Trailer
 

Currently the popular Hollywood trade news sites (now THR has joined in) are providing spin for Warner Bros. in that the studio is said to be disappointed by the leaked footage from Comic-Con. Some reports even offered that all the studios are considering not releasing any more footage at conventions due to the leaks.

Of course, I had to call BS on that as studios do leak stuff themselves and leaked footage is beneficial - as Ryan Reynolds just admitted regarding Deadpool.

Now we get futher proof from YouTube as the Suicide Squad trailer is currently the #1 trending video in just about every city in the United States.

It's pretty much just like I said: The studios get double the promotion.

Now, who's complaining (see below)?

"Suicide Squad" has an August 5, 2016 release date directed by David Ayer starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Scott Eastwood in an unknown role.

Sue Kroll, President Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures:

"Warner Bros. Pictures and our anti-piracy team have worked tirelessly over the last 48 hours to contain the Suicide Squad footage that was pirated from Hall H on Saturday. We have been unable to achieve that goal. Today we will release the same footage that has been illegally circulating on the web, in the form it was created and high quality with which it was intended to be enjoyed. We regret this decision as it was our intention to keep the footage as a unique experience for the Comic Con crowd, but we cannot continue to allow the film to be represented by the poor quality of the pirated footage stolen from our presentation."
