This guy went to the preview. It's a positive review (he states he liked BvS) and gives mild spoiler warning at the appropriate time. Almost halfway through he inserted a quick thought he forgot to include in his review. He recorded it in his car but returns back to his review.

There aren't many reviews but I watched the one above and another one on YouTube last night. Both seemed fairly positive. The other guy I watched didn't like Batman V Superman but liked this film.

I think the embargo is still in place.

Can someone explain the billing of Robie above Will Smith?

Just to give people who have no life something to bitch about.

This questioned triggered with me the rumor that they were/are having an affair. Plus Deadshot isn't selling the movie much, but Harley Quinn, most definitely. Your question reminds me of when Nicholson had top billing for Batman.

Duh, they know comics fans will be spanking to Robie.

Not sure what you're talking about? Promo material lists Smith first. If you're talking about Oldboy's post... then that is something else as it isn't official... and he wrote "Margo".

Re: Suicide Squad (Ayer, 2016) The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread
 
Yeah I think Smith has gotten top billing. On the posters I remember it's his name, Leto's, and then Robbie's.

I'm sure he doesn't mind that on top of him.

She's not. Will Smith hasn't taken second billing since Six Degrees of Separation, with the exception of After Earth, where he ceded top billing to his son.

Smith has had second billing in the first two MIB films & both Bad Boys films.

I stand corrected! Martin Smith must have had one hell of an agent to get himself top billing, even though Will is far more prominent in the BB2 poster.

...I think you mean Martin Lawrence. ;)

Those movies had two main leads; both actors had top billing.

This seems like it wants to be a Joker/Harley movie more than anything else.

It's like the first three DCEU movies are putting DC's most recognizable characters, Superman, Batman, and The Joker, in their own films first.

Would anyone care about a Suicide Squad movie without the Joker and Harley Quinn?

Re: Suicide Squad (Ayer, 2016) The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread
 
Yeah you can pretty much guarantee that if all the other elements were the same but Harley and The Joker were taken out this film would have little to no hype. It seems like this film was made because DC wanted a Harley led film but were a bit hesitant about jumping right to that. So you put The Joker in for good measure and add some star power with Will Smith as Deadshot.

I know a lot of people want to love Robbie as Harley but a few of the reviews I've listened to actually say she's one of the weaker parts of the film.

TheMovieman 08-02-16 01:03 AM

Re: Suicide Squad (Ayer, 2016) The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread
 
And yet I've been reading she, along with Smith's Deadshot, were the highlights. :lol:

(BTW, not saying she may not be the weak link or anything, just funny how varied some reactions have been when it comes to who stood out or not).

Mike86 08-02-16 01:43 AM

Re: Suicide Squad (Ayer, 2016) The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread
 
I have a feeling she might be divisive. A lot of what I've heard makes it sound like her dialogue and the way she delivers it comes off too on the nose and forced. It seems like one of the most well liked characters in all the reviews is actually Diablo along with Amanda Waller and The Joker. I've heard Smith is fine but that it's a pretty typical performance as we're used to from him.

It's an honest fucking question. What the hell are you contributing?

Anyway, Oldboy's post listed her first and if you look closely on that poster Will Smith's name is first but her name is at the top. It's a Towering Inferno situation.

Mike86 08-02-16 11:04 AM

Re: Suicide Squad (Ayer, 2016) The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread
 
I think that's just the design of the poster but I'm pretty sure Smith is billed first. Realistically this is more or less Harley's movie though.
