Who said theft and piracy ever led to anything bad?

If you were fortunate enough to see the first screening of the Suicide Squad trailer at Comic-Con – good for you. The rest of us had to watch it from a pirated video that someone had filmed.

Since then, Warner Brothers has released the full trailer. Their statement reads:

“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.”

Here is the trailer in all its glory.

We can see a lot in here: Harley Quinn, Will Smith, and of course Jared Leto’s highly anticipated Joker. What do you think?

Sucide Squad hits cinemas August 5 2016.
