Cinema - Suicide Squad (15)
At last. The most talked-about film of the decade, a DC Comic-based project from Warner Bros that began back in February 2009, has finally landed. This motley band of antiheroes has long been a presence in DC Comics, usually as support to Batman or Arrow, but under the direction of David Ayer they’ve gone it alone. The ensemble cast includes Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Scott Eastwood and Cara Delevingne – and it definitely won’t be the last we’ll see of them.
