Another trailer for Suicide Squad arrived during SDCC 2016 and it's all about Mr. J himself, who dons pretty much every ridiculous outfit imaginable in the 1-minute video. Check out the Joker trailer below:

These kind of trippy Suicide Squad character trailers are a little retro and a lot of weird. Check 'em out...

Suicide Squad Release Date

The Suicide Squad movie will blow up a theater near you on Augut 5th, 2016. 

We took a closer look at all the movies on Warner Bros. DC Superhero Schedule right here.

Suicide Squad Rating

There had been some speculation that Suicide Squad could go the Deadpool route and chase an R-rating, although that was never the director or studio's intention. It would have made some sense considering the subject matter, but that's not happening. The Suicide Squad movie is officially a PG-13 affair for "sequences of violence and action throughout, disturbing behavior, suggestive content and language.”

But hey, if you're a proponent of R-rated superhero movies, take heart! Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was PG-13, and that hasn't stopped Warner Bros. from putting out an R-rated edition on the Blu-ray. So really, anything can happen!

Suicide Squad Running Time

 Flixster revealed that Suicide Squad has svelte running time of 100 minutes. That's nearly an hour shorter than earlier DC Films efforts, Man of Steel and Batman v Superman, and more in line with Deadpool's running time (143 minutes).

This could be indicative of the film's lighter, more action-friendly tone. They've got a lot of characters to introduce in this one, so hopefully it all works out.

Suicide Squad Trailer

The weekend might be over, but Warner Bros. is already helping you fight a case of the Mondays with their brand new and wicked Suicide Squad trailer. The latest bit of marketing continues the trend of having slick, breezy, and overtly fun energy in the Suicide Squad films. The pop tunes in question here are a cover of Leslie Gore's "You Don't Own Me"--which suggests that WB might be taking a page out of Showtime's marketing for Penny Dreadful season 3, which used the exact same song to haunting effect--and The Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz."

But most of all, after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the message is clear: we're going to have a wild ride this time! Now, enjoy it, you Jokers!

Here are the earlier trailers...

In case you didn't notice, there's an absolute ton of DC Comics mythology stashed around in the margins of this trailer. If you want a detailed breakdown of all the craziness in it, click here!

We have a detailed analysis of the trailer right here.

And here is the recut international trailer.

So, there's not much new footage in this international trailer, but it's better than nothing, right?

Get ready for an endless parade of TV spots for this one over the next month or so as Warner Bros. ramps up the promotional machine. And now the first two have arrived.

There's not much in the way of new footage here, just a few seconds here and there, but if you need your fix, this is one way to get it.

Here's the first...

...and here's the second:
