Suicide Squad Blu-ray

December 13th, 2016 will mark the arrival of the new Warner Home Video Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D and 4K Ultra HD releases for Suicide Squad.

David Ayer wrote the screenplay based on the DC Comics antihero team.

It is the third film installment in the DC Extended Universe.

The story follows a secret government agency that recruits imprisoned supervillains to execute dangerous black ops missions.

The cast includes Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

Suicide Squad was directed by David Ayer, the man known for films like Street Kings, Harsh Times, Sabotage, End of Watch, and Fury.

The film received predominantly negative reviews, with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 26%.

It had a better public reception with an IMDb score of 6.6/10.

Suicide Squad was a big success in the cinema though, taking in $325.1M at the US box office.

With a total over $745 million worldwide, it is the eighth-highest-grossing film of 2016.

Planned features for the disc include a 1080p video encode presented at 2.40:1, with Dolby Atmos object based audio soundtrack.

Both the theatrical and extended editions will be included on the Blu-ray Disc.

The Blu-ray 3D will feature stereo MVC 1080p encoding, while the Ultra HD will be 2160p with HDR, both again with Atmos.

It is excellent to see Dolby Atmos on the Blu-ray releases as well as the Ultra HD.

A gag reel and a bunch of supplemental featurettes are also planned.

Suicide Squad Blu-ray Synopsis:

It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
