Starring Jared Leto, Will Smith and Margot Robbie, Suicide Squad dropped on August 5th 2016 in theaters everywhere. It was a cultural phenomenon that challenged the ideas of what it takes to pull off a superhero cult classic and is reaching new heights in the music and movie industries.
The DC Films supervillain caper earned $38m in 64 foreign territories along with its $20.7m domestic weekend gross. The film has now earned $310.4m overseas, which combined with its $262.2m domestic total brings the film’s worldwide cume to $572.6m thus far.
In case you’ve been living in a hole for the past 6 months, here is the official movie trailer:
I confess, I have watched it four times since I first saw it–each time revealed little details that I had originally missed upon my first viewing.
What has really surprised me is the infectious Official Soundtrack which has a solid roster of artists including none other than Skrillex, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Twenty One Pilots, Kehlani, Action Bronson, Skylar Grey, Eminem and more.
It’s the soundtrack that has caught my interest, and my ears. So as my first post for my 2017 relaunch of my art, music and technology blog Genuine Individual, I’m going to share some of the examples I believe this movie has set of some new standards for engaging society on cultural levels. I could go on about why this movie is so different from any other, but I’ll just shut up and let the content speak for itself.
I’ll also be sharing some of the fantastic fan art for a plump, robust posting. 😉
And my personal favorite Official Music Video:
