Suicide Squad, written and directed by David Ayer, doesn’t hit theaters until August 5, 2016 and the above footage meant originally to be just for Comic-Con. However, a pirated version of the footage has been widely leaked, therefore Warner Brothers studio has released the official version.
Suicide Squad stars Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne and Viola Davis.
The president of Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution at Warner Bros., Sue Kroll, explained her disappointment this happened at all (Deadline).
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.
