'Tormented' Suicide Squad stars have on-set therapist

1 July 2015 1:51 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Adam Beach, who plays Slipknot, says the star-studded comic book epic is so dark that castmembers such as Will Smith and Jared Leto are given access to specialist life coach

The high-profile cast of pioneering supervillain movie Suicide Squad have been given access to an on-set therapist to help them cope with the “torment” of their grim roles, according to one of the film’s main players.

David Ayer’s film stars Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis and Cara Delevingne as an assortment of DC Comics baddies sent on an impossible black-ops mission in return for the commutation of their sentences. Adam Beach, who plays Slipknot, told E! Online the film was so dark that Ayer had provided access to therapy during cast members’ down time.

'Suicide Squad' Only Has Three Girls, But 'They Have the Best Roles'

29 June 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

What's more important: Quantity or quality? Cara Delevingne is playing Enchantress in "Suicide Squad," a superhero/villain movie based on the DC Comics characters, and she said the few female roles in the movie are the best roles.

Will Smith has arguably the lead role as Deadshot, with Jared Leto as Joker, and Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Adam Beach, Jay Hernandez, Scott Eastwood, Common, Jim Parrack, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje picking up other main roles. But Margot Robbie has one of the most anticipated roles as Harley Quinn -- she's front and center in the character photo above -- and Karen Fukuhara is taking on the role of Katana. Viola Davis plays Amanda Waller, who has no superpowers, but she's the head of the agency so that's its own power, even outside the Squad.

Delevingne -- who is everywhere lately -- talked to Empire Magazine about the movie, and superhero films in general. »

Jared Leto's Joker, and his 'strange' cast gifts

28 June 2015 10:46 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Suicide Squad's new Joker endeared himself to co-stars with a dead hog, a live rat and some bullets...

Production continues on the promising Suicide Squad movie, the second of 2016's DC cinematic universe projects (after Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice). David Ayer is directing Suicide Squad, and he's assembled a cast that includes Will Smith, Adam Beach, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney, Scott Eastwood, Viola Davis, Common, Joel Kinnaman and Cara Delevingne.

In the early stages of the film's production, Jared Leto - who, of course, is playing The Joker - wasn't on set too much. But according to one of his co-stars, he certainly made his presence felt. Adam Beach, who's taking on the role of Slipknot, said Leto sent some unusual gifts to the cast near the start of the shoot.

Cara Delevingne thinks most superhero films are "totally sexist"

27 June 2015 4:37 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cara Delevingne thinks most superhero movies are "totally sexist".

The actress - who will appear as Enchantress in David Ayer's Suicide Squad - questioned the outfits that a lot of female superheroes wear.

She told Empire: "There are only three girls in [Suicide Squad] but in my opinion they have the best roles. Generally though, superhero movies are totally sexist.

"Female superheroes are normally naked or in bikinis. No-one would be able to fight like that. Wonder Woman, how the hell does she fight? She would be dead in a minute."

Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Will Smith and Jai Courtney also feature in the cast of Suicide Squad.

Suicide Squad tells the story of a group of supervillains led on a mission of redemption by soldier Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman).

Delevingne recently insisted that she has no plans to give up modelling despite her blossoming acting career. »

Jared Leto goes method as Joker, sends love letter and live rat to Margot Robbie

26 June 2015 7:46 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jared Leto has gotten into his Joker character for the upcoming Suicide Squad movie by sending his co-stars some unusual gifts.

Co-star Adam Beach, who plays supervillain Slipknot, revealed to Entertainment Weekly that among the presents, Leto gave Margot Robbie a live rat.

"He sent her a nice love letter with a black box with a rat in it - a live rat," Beach said. "It was beautiful.

"Then he sent bullets to Will [Smith] with a letter."

Beach continued by recalling that the cast were given a dead hog, which was accompanied with a video message from Leto.

He explained: "Basically, what he said was, 'Guys, I can't be there but I want you to know I'm doing my work as hard as you guys'.

"The video he showed is in character. It blew our minds away. Then we realised that day, this is real."

Could David Ayer Be Teasing 'Deathstroke' With New Suicide Squad Image?

17 June 2015 5:30 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Is it possible that this is our first look at Slade Wilson, Aka Deathstroke, in David Ayer's Suicide Squad? We haven't actually had any official confirmation that the character will even appear in the movie, but he's strongly rumoured to be who Jim Parrack (True Blood) will be playing. Aside from the big-ass firearm, there's nothing in the pic to suggest that it's Deathstroke, but Ayer wouldn't have any reason to obscure the identity of one of the other Squad members considering we've already had a proper glimpse of 'em - be it officially or otherwise. Whoever it is in the image, he's clearly involved in a scene at a firing range. pic.twitter.com/veCXP309Mf — David Ayer (@DavidAyerMovies) June 17, 2015   Directed by David Ayer from his script, Suicide Squad also stars Will Smith (Deadshot), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag), Jared Leto (the Joker), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney »

Run All Night Blu-Ray Review

16 June 2015 1:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

All hail Liam Neeson. If anyone should be allowed to rest on his laurels, it’s this veteran actor, who has earned accolades for prestige dramas and made a near-seamless transition over to leading-man action hero at this late stage in his career. But in the unexpectedly excellent Run All Night, the star isn’t content to play another Taken-style hero with “a very particular set of skills.” Instead, he subverts that image, playing former mob assassin Jimmy as a boozy bad seed, put out to pasture by his associates and scorned by all, especially his estranged son, Michael (Joel Kinnaman).

Jimmy is not a good guy, and Neeson never tries to redeem him in our eyes. Here, the actor seems older, sadder, more defeated – his shoulders droop like those of a man sinking into the Earth under the weight of his sins, and his run is ungainly enough »

'Run All Night' (Blu-ray) Review

16 June 2015 7:41 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Ever since 2008's Taken, we haven't seen Oskar Schindler in the same light. Liam Neeson was falling from grace until that smash hit and ever since has been a staple in modern action films including three collaborations with Jaun Collet-Serra (Unknown, Non-Stop), most recently the aptly titled Run All Night. Starting out, it seems all too familar. Neeson plays a father figure with a troubled past. He looks like he'll kill you just as fast as he may invite you to the bar for drinks. Considering his most recent work, it seems he's stuck in an infinite loop of playing badass 60-year olds, but he provides some of his best work of recent memory here, and predispositions soon fade. That's not to say this isn't a typecast -- it is -- but he does completely own his role and add depth to this story about fathers protecting what's theirs and owning up to their faults, »

New images from Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups featuring Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett and more

15 June 2015 10:08 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups, but thanks to The Playlist we’ve got a new batch of images from the film, which shows off its all-star cast including Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Wes Bently and Teresa Palmer; check them out here…

Rick (Bale) is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.

In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. »

In this edition of The Week in Spandex, we look at Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justie, Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, Justice League, Supergirl, Constantine, Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Daredevil, The Punisher, Jessica Jones, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., Fantastic Four, X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool, Wolverine 3, Hellboy 3, Heroes Reborn and more…

It’s the San Diego Comic-Con International next month, and if you were looking forward to Marvel Studios’ annual Hall H extravaganza, then I’m afraid it appears you’re out of luck.

Still, there is going to be plenty of superhero goodness, »

Jared Leto and Common in latest Suicide Squad set photos

10 June 2015 11:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following on from the latest spy photos featuring Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Will Smith (Deadshot), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Jay Hernandez (El Diablo) and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc) [see here], more images from the set of Suicide Squad have landed online this morning, giving us another look at Jared Leto’s Joker, as well as our first glimpse of Common as his as-yet-unrevealed character…

So, who do you think Common is playing? The Tattooed Man? Or are tattoos just par for the course with Suicide Squad?

Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5th 2016 and boasts an impressive cast including Will Smith (Focus) as Deadshot, Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) as The Joker, Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney (Terminator Genisys) as Captain Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop) as Rick Flagg, Viola Davis (The Help) as Amanda Waller, Cara Delevingne (Paper Towns) as Enchantress, »

Suicide Squad: New Set Pics Feature Our First Look At Common As... 'Bronze Tiger'?

10 June 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

David Ayer sure does like tats! These new Suicide Squad set images feature Common as yet another inked-up character. Ever since the rapper was cast fans have speculated about who he could be playing, and it looks like it might just be Bronze Tiger - though to be fair, he could really be anyone, that's just the established DC villain he most closely resemble here. There's always the chance he's Tattooed Man (a Green Lantern baddie) of course, but since practically every character in this movie is sporting some body art, it doesn't really single him out! It's probably safe to assume he's not playing John Stewart at any rate! Thoughts? Directed by David Ayer from his script, Suicide Squad also stars Will Smith (Deadshot), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag), Jared Leto (the Joker), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Jessie Eisenberg (Lex »

Suicide Squad Movie Logo Revealed

9 June 2015 1:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We’ve already seen the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice half of Warner Brothers’ Las Vegas Licensing Expo presentation, and now the DC villains have taken their share of the spotlight, as the official logo for Suicide Squad has been revealed.

Warner Brothers has obviously taken the, “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it,” approach to the logo, as it’s the exact same one used for the New 52 Suicide Squad comics. While the logo isn’t terribly exciting, it does confirm that Suicide Squad will be the actual title of the film, as there was some question over whether or not WB would change it or add some kind of subtitle, as the word “Suicide” comes with dark and negative connotations.

Jai Courtney “cringed” when he found out he was Captain Boomerang in Suicide Squad

9 June 2015 12:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It looks as though Jai Courtney was not the biggest fan of his character when he first signed on for Suicide Squad, saying in an interview that he “cringed” when he heard he was playing Captain Boomerang in David Ayer’s movie.

“I hadn’t read a script at all when I signed on,” he told Spotlight Report while promoting Terminator Genisys. “We’d met on a couple of occasions and we’d spoken. And, to be honest, when he told me that the role of Captain Boomerang was what he was thinking, I kind of cringed. Cause I wasn’t a comic book kid. I wasn’t familiar with the DC universe and the history of that. So I knew nothing about it. And I was, like, ‘Oh, god, Captain Boomerang…Really? I really don’t know how Australians will react to this.”

“And It’s funny, cause something »
