Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Electrifies New ‘Suicide Squad’ Trailer

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

There are currently more superhero movies and TV shows in production than any person could possibly watch. Similarly, Queen‘s “Bohemian Rhapsody” has been used in so many commercials, films and viral videos that we should all be sick of it by now. Heck, we’ve written more stories about that one song than we’ve written about several famous bands.

And yet.. the new trailer for DC Entertainment’s “bad guys forced to do good, probably because the government planted explosive devices in their necks” summer 2016 blockbuster Suicide Squad, set entirely to Freddie Mercury and company’s 1975 masterpiece, is thoroughly exciting and absolutely brilliant.

The two-and-a-half minute trailer jumps through all of the dynamic song’s most famous parts, adding drama and a sense of grandeur as we are introduced to Jared Leto’s take on the Joker, Will Smith as Deadshot and Margie Robbie as Harley Quinn.

Suicide Squad is scheduled to hit theaters on Friday, August 5. But really, it’ll start playing the night before that, just like every other big Hollywood movie for the last three or more years. (Seriously, why do they still pull that crap?)

To get the latest news on Suicide Squad and all the other superhero movies headed your way in the coming months, be sure to visit our friends at Screencrush. But before you do that, check out our massive feature on the 40th anniversary of “Bohemian Rhapsody” to see all the weird and wonderful ways the song has permeated our culture over the years.
