There's no business quite like show business, is there? Even a movie as gritty and grimy as David Ayer's Suicide Squad is guaranteed to have a lavish premiere where all of the beautiful people walk down the red carpet dressed to the nines. These events carry an aura of exclusivity to them, but the increasing pervasiveness of internet-based technologies has slowly but surely begun to eat away at that notion. In fact, as long as you have some sort of internet access you will be able to attend the Suicide Squad premiere.
According to a report from Variety, it seems that each and every one of us will have the opportunity to experience the Suicide Squad premiere -- in a manner of speaking. It seems that Twitter will live-stream the world premiere of the long-awaited DC film, and broadcast it to users all over the world. Buzzfeed will host the event, with Keith Habersberger and Zach Kornfeld (a.k.a The Try Guys) conducting interviews with the cast and crew. This event will begin at 6 p.m. EST, and we have a distinct feeling that it's a moment that fans of the DCEU will not want to miss.
The major event has already begun to draw quite a bit of buzz from across the web. It hasn't even begun yet, but fans have started chiming in regarding their own excitement about the Task Force X solo adventure. Keep an eye on the embed below to watch the event!
For Twitter to host such an event seems like a fairly strong fit. Suicide Squad has become one of the most hyped movies of 2016, and as such it makes sense that a major social media platform would take it upon itself to bring us instant access to the premiere. In fact, we even recently reported that Suicide Squad had become the most talked about movie on social media; this event is clearly a strong marriage between fans and the platforms that they use every single day.
We can't understate how big of an event the release of Suicide Squad could be. Despite the insane number of big budget franchises that released major films this year, this summer has felt incredibly lean in terms of high quality, explosive entertainment. The summer began strong with Captain America: Civil War, but just about every major franchise film to hit theaters between then and now has ranged from lukewarm to downright bad. Suicide Squad represents an opportunity for Warner Bros. to make up for the lackluster performance of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, and set the DCEU back on course with an outlandish and groundbreaking comic book movie.
Make sure to stay tuned for all of the latest and greatest Suicide Squad news. Our review for the film will go live tomorrow morning!
