It’s common for movies, particularly blockbusters, to undergo reshoots.
Both the first Suicide Squad trailer, which debuted at the San Diego Comic-Con, as well as the succeeding trailers with the Queen song, all received positive feedback from fans. Apparently though, the first ever trailer was the one closer to the actual tone of the film.
Well now, according to Birth. Movies. Death., because of the massive positive response to the trailers with the Queen song, Warner Bros. decided to request reshoots in order to alter the tone of Suicide Squad and make it more light and humorous.
Warner Bros. requested that director David Ayer add “more humor and lightness”. A source said “every joke in the movie is in that trailer,” which means there were five jokes in the movie.
The Suicide Squad reshoots have reportedly begun already. The studio is also adding more cost to the film’s budget.
Considering the direction the film is taking, following audience response and all, the studio’s investment will likely be well worth it.
This, to me, is great news. Hearing thatWarner Bros. is aware that they need to inject some fun into these movies.
