Watch the New Trailer for "The Suicide Squad," a Movie That Exists For Some Reason

Not to be confused with the 2016 movie, "Suicide Squad."

The Suicide Squad

The official trailer for The Suicide Squad, the upcoming DC Comics film, was released today.

The Suicide Squad — not to be confused with the 2016 film, Suicide Squad — yet again centers around Harley Quinn, this time joined by Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Blackguard, and an array of convicts at Belle Reve penitentiary who, naturally, are all hired to destroy a different prison. Except this time, there's a Nazi subplot for some reason. The film is currently slated for release on August 6, 2021, in theaters and on HBO Max.

Here Are All the 2021 Academy Award Nominees

See the full list of historic nominations.

We may still be thinking about this year's unusual Grammy Awards, but it's already time to focus on the next big show of awards season: the 2021 Academy Awards.

The 93rd annual Oscars ceremony is scheduled to go down on April 25, more than two months later than last year's show. Like most regularly-scheduled events in the past year, it's going to be a weird one, especially considering that most movie theaters have been empty since social distancing guidelines were first set into place.

Here's What Went Down at the 2021 Critics Choice Awards

It's (a very anticlimactic) award season!

Nobody watched the Critics Choice Awards this year, it seems.

Instead, everyone was tuned into Meghan Markle's interview with Oprah, an exclusive tell-all that shamelessly exposed the Royal Family and their racism for the world to see.

And as the illusion of an empire was crumbling, actors were getting awards (lots for The Crown, ironically).

The Critics Choice Awards, which had been postponed from their earlier slate in January due to the pandemic, follow the Golden Globes in this year's virtual award show lineup. Typically, this is the award show where cast members sit around tables together getting drunk; and though this year lacked the same charm, we assume they were just drinking off camera and live-texting their cast group chats (that's what we'd be doing).

Does Anyone Want "A Quiet Place 2" in the Middle of the Pandemic?

Post-apocalyptic movies should wait until we get through this actual apocalypse.

Can you imagine a world in which normal human activity has halted?

Stores stand empty and abandoned. If you have to go outside for a supply run, you do so with caution and preparation, ever aware that one false move could expose you to the deadly, mysterious entity that is constantly stalking humanity?

Is Disney's "Raya and the Last Dragon" a Rip-off of "Avatar" and "Korra"?

Whether it was intentional or subconscious, the new movie looks suspiciously familiar.

Update 3/5/2021: Raya is now out in theaters — for the reckless and the vaccinated — and on Disney+ — for people who want to spend $29.99 in addition to the subscription. If either of those categories describe you, hit us up on Facebook or Twitter to let us know if you think Raya ripped off Avatar.

The rest of us will be waiting until June, when it will be free to all Disney+ subscribers.

Best and Worst of the 2021 Golden Globes Awards

Between racism, fashion faux-pas and technical difficulties, there was certainly a lot to unpack in the ceremony, so we did it so you don't have to.

Another awards season is upon us.

Despite delays for some major shows due to COVID, the Golden Globes kicked off the virtual awards season this weekend. Hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler — another win for white women before the show even began — the 2021 Golden Globes were held in a bicoastal ceremony between New York, LA, and the internet.
