The Suicide Squad knows how to dress for a red carpet.
When the cast of the hotly anticipated superhero epic turned out at the film’s New York Premiere on Monday, some stars came dressed to impress in outfits more outlandish than their over-the-top characters.
Suicide Squad Cast Goes Wild on Red Carpet
Margot Robbie, who plays crazy troublemaker Harley Quinn, stunned in a black and gold gown that almost looked totally normal — until you noticed that it featured a giant unicorn.
As for Jared Leto, who stars as the Joker, his long blue coat embroidered with flowers and a giant lion’s head on the back went a long way toward perpetuating his well-cultivated air of wild insanity.
Adam Beach, who plays the hitman Slipknot, also came decked out in an ensemble befitting his murderous character, rocking a leather jacket emblazoned with a Suicide Squad logo on the back.
While Cara Delevingne went for a more subtle strangeness, her heavy, dark make-up and quasi-post-apocalyptic, semi-sheer dress looked like a fancier version of something her character, Enchantress, would think about wearing to prom.
Suicide Squad is based on the DC Comics antihero team of the same name. Written and directed by David Ayer and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, it is the third installment in the DC Extended Universe. The film stars an ensemble cast featuring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood and Cara Delevingne. In Suicide Squad, a secret government agency led by Amanda Waller recruits imprisoned supervillains to execute dangerous black ops missions and save the world from a powerful threat in exchange for clemency.
Suicide Squad premiered in New York City on August 1, 2016 and will be theatrically released on August 5, 2016, in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.
