25-year-old Australian actress Margot Robbie plays super-villain Harley Quinn in David Ayer’s upcoming Suicide Squad film, and, based on the trailer, she is the center of attention. Harley Quinn, the Joker’s on-again-off-again comical sweetheart, has been a fan favorite since her inception in 1992, and Suicide Squad marks the live-action cinematic debut of the character. The preview premiered at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend before being leaked online. Warner Bros. officially released the clip on Monday, and it definitely does not disappoint. The characters, the spectacle, the action, and the costumes are all top-notch, but one super-villain stood out above the rest. Below are five times we couldn’t take our eyes off of Margot Robbie in the Suicide Squad trailer.
The first time we see Harley she is dangling upside down from a bed sheet performing gymnastics. Everyone else was right-side up. (Boring.)
“Are you the Devil?” *shivers*
The team is walking through a rundown city carrying various high power weapons, and Harley is armed with just a baseball bat. Bad. Ass.
Gross, but captivating.
The smile on her face when she says “Hope you got insurance” is so sinister. I think I’m in love.
Check out the trailer below, and be sure to go see Margot Robbie and the rest of the Suicide Squad when the film hits theaters on August 5, 2016.
