Over the past few weeks, there have been many rumors about Warner Bros. and DC Films' Suicide Squad film's official Runtime. With some rumors saying that it would only be around 1 hour and 40 minutes.
Now the good folks over at Collider are reporting that the official Runtime is actually 130 minutes long (2 hours and 10 mins). That film time sounds about right considering bigger films in the same genre clock in around 140 mins. or 150 mins. Given this film's smaller story and spinoff nature this runtime is perfect for me, what about?
"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?
Directed by David Ayer and starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoyue-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne, Karen Fukuhara, and Adam Beach.
Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters on August 5th.
