The Suicide Squad director James Gunn revealed which shot in the DC film was the hardest to pull off.
In The Suicide Squad, there are some dazzling shots from cinematographer Henry Braham. From Harley Quinn’s escape sequence to Peacemaker and Bloodsport taking down the village.
One of the coolest shots in The Suicide Squad that was also in the first trailer features Idris Elba’s Bloodsport walking with the remaining team. The cut goes from one side of Bloodsport’s face to the other with the squad behind him on their way to face Starro. On Twitter, Gunn revealed that the shot was actually the hardest one in the entire film to pull off and explained why:
Here is the synopsis for The Suicide Squad:
Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission, with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.
