Yesterday, Warner Bros. released an extended promo introducing audiences to Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), “one of the scariest characters in the movie” and the mastermind who puts the Suicide Squad together. One of the leaders of that squad is Deadshot (Will Smith). Smith, who’s probably most famous for playing heroes, stars in David Ayer‘s film as the assassin/supervillain. The newest promo tells you all you need to about the character, including the fact only his friends call him by his real name Floyd.

Below, watch the Suicide Squad extended promo.

Suicide Squad stars Smith, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Jared Leto, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Karen Fukuhara, Jay Hernandez, Cara Delevingne, Adam Beach, David Harbour, and Ben Affleck makes an appearance as Batman. The newest footage highlights Smith’s role in the film. He still seems to have his signature, wisecracking charm; it’s just servicing a different kind of role and film this time around.

Here’s the Suicide Squad extended promo:

The commercial is only a minute long, but it is surprising we don’t see Deadshot and Harley Quinn interacting at all. Smith and Robbie are reuniting after sharing plenty of chemistry in Focus, and Ayer has said the two will have a significant amount of screentime together in Suicide Squad.

Based on the above promo and the trailers we’ve seen so far, it’s obvious there will also be plenty of banter and tension between Deadshot and Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman). Ayer stated on the set that both characters are “herding cats,” and that “they don’t care” who looks like the squad’s leader. They’re less concerned with their status, more concerned about saving the world.

Ayer and the rest of his squad are making the trip down to San Diego Comic-Con this week. On Saturday, Warner Bros. will show a few clips from the film and Patty Jenkins‘ Wonder Woman. Since Ayer’s film was finished a couple of weeks ago, fans should see some new, completed footage from Suicide Squad.

Here’s the official synopsis:

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?

Suicide Squad opens in theaters August 5th.

Viola Davis is no prude, but the two-time Oscar nominee was reduced to giggles when it came time to relay how she worked with Suicide Squad writer-director David Ayer to portray the manipulative special agent Amanda Waller.

With no special powers or abilities, Davis was already at a disadvantage when portraying Waller. Rather, she had to rely on her character’s cunning and wits to become the baddest baddie of all.

“She’s a strategist. She’s a manipulator. She doesn’t fly in the sky or swim in the water,” says Davis. “She’s just a regular person who can manipulate these superheroes. And I love that.”

Davis also loved working with Ayer. She calls her boss a combination of Cecil DeMille and Shaggy from Scooby-Doo, an even-tempered dudebro on the surface who can manipulate his actors with the briefest of asides.

Take Davis’s interaction with Joel Kinnaman, who plays Rick Flag, the guard dog of the Suicide Squad and Waller’s first lieutenant. Davis had big plans for how she was going to play the scene before Ayer, walked up and whispered a new line into her ear.

“He would make me call, [Davis starts laughing and can’t really stop] Joel Kinnaman a p—y at times. A bitch. [More laughs.] It’s completely politically incorrect but it caused a reaction in me,” says Davis. “It made me feel like a straight up thug, and it made Rick Flagg want to kick my ass. So David got what he wanted.”

Kinnaman, for his part remembers that day on set vividly.

“Some of the stuff she said really pissed me off,” Kinnaman recalls. “And I felt really betrayed. And that’s exactly what David wanted me to feel… And now it’s in the movie. That’s some pretty high-level direction through manipulation.”

Suicide Squad opens everywhere Aug. 5.

Tom Holland gained worldwide recognition and fame when he debuted in Captain America: Civil War as the latest iteration of the superhero web-slinger, and he’ll soon headline his own Marvel movie Spider-Man: Homecoming. Before that, he impressed audiences and critics with films like The Impossible, How I Live Now, and In the Heart of the Sea. In his latest non-blockbuster fair, Edge of Winter, he co-stars with Suicide Squad’s Joel Kinnaman, and you can preview his performance in the new trailer.

Here we find Holland as Bradley, one of two brothers (the other played by Percy Hynes White) stranded on a day trip with their father Elliot (Kinnaman), whom they barely know. Recently divorced from their mother and laid off, this unpredictable man begins terrifying the boys when they are stranded at a remote cabin. Watch the trailer below.

Edge of Winter is the feature film directorial debut of Rob Connolly, who previously worked as a cinematographer, camera operator, and gaffer on various projects. The film, co-written by Connolly and Capote producer Kyle Mann, also features Rachelle Lefevre (Under the Dome) and Shiloh Fernandez (Evil Dead).

Edge of Winter opens in theaters on August 12. Here’s the official synopsis:

Recently divorced and laid off from his job, Elliot Baker (Joel Kinnaman, Suicide Squad; Run All Night) is desperate to spend more time bonding with his sons, Bradley (Tom Holland, Captain America: Civil War) and Caleb (Percy Hynes White, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb). What starts as family day trip to teach his boys how to shoot turns into a nightmare when they become stranded. As they retreat to a desolate cabin, Elliot’s mounting fear of losing custody pushes him to the edge. The brothers quickly realize that the man responsible for keeping them safe has now become their biggest threat.

The first time you really noticed Joel Kinnaman was probably either TV’s “The Killing” or filling shoes once worn by Peter Weller in the 2014 “RoboCop” remake.

From the starring role in the latter, it took awhile for the Swedish born actor (real name Charles Joel Nordström) to really pop. Recently he’s been in Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups” which – let’s face it – nobody understood and the ill-advised adaptation of Lee Child’s book Child 44.

But 2016 might finally be his year. Following a very classy turn as a crusading politician in Netflix’s “House of Cards” (the polar opposite of his big screen roles so far), he joins the years most zeitgeisty film, “Suicide Squad”.

The 36 year old talked to Moviehole on the Toronto set of David Ayer’s anticipated comic book blockbuster about his character Rick Flagg, military handler of the Suicide Squad.

It seems like character of Rick Flagg is one of the few true heroes with integrity.
I think that’s what I really like about this script, it really questions ‘what is a hero and what is a bad guy?’ It’s my favorite theme when it takes place in the gray zone more than in the black and white. We see some good guys doing some bad things, and some really bad guys doing some good things.

He’s just a soldier. He doesn’t have any superpowers or any kind of special powers?
No. No superpowers.

How does he fit into the team?
He’s basically holding the team hostage because he can kill them. They all have implants in their necks, he’s forced by his boss to do this, and he doesn’t necessarily agree with his boss. Then over the course of the movie you see how that sort of allegiance shifts and how he questions his morality.

Do the other guys get more action or is he in on the action as well?
No, they’re all in on the action. The superpowers here aren’t that crazy. Diablo [Jay Hernandez] can get pretty crazy, but he’s quite passive in the first part of the movie. Deadshot [Will Smith] is an extremely good shooter, but so is Flagg.

What’s your character’s arc, if any?
He thinks [the Squad] is a horrible idea. He wants to solve this with his team of operators that he knows and he can trust, but now he has to deal with these psychopaths that do not follow orders, they just go their own way.

Then he sees how affected they are, and also that they also have a moral foundation though it takes a different shape than his. He starts to appreciate these people, and his allegiance starts to shift towards them.

How does he fit into the gritty real world director David Ayer wants to create as opposed to a hyper-real comic book world?
I think this whole DC approach has a very different tone than the Marvel world. I think the stakes are higher. There’s more real emotion in it, and there’s a lot of over the top, fun characters. The comedy comes more from characters that are extreme, more a world that isn’t really taken serious.

I think that is sort of the main difference. It’s much easier to share more of your feelings when the world has a seriousness to it. There’s a playfulness in the characters, but the world is real.

Was it a really different experience from Robocop? This looks like it has a lot more practical effects.
Yeah, it’s much bigger. It’s really evident for me because we shot that here too, in Toronto, and this movie is about twice the size of RoboCop. There’s a lot more stunt people.

We were doing scenes last week where we had about 26 people on wires just running on walls, this whole wall of bad guys coming towards us. I think there were probably about fifty people in the whole scene.

Is it more fun filming that way?
I love being in the real action. It really bores me to watch a city get demolished in CG. I’ve seen it so many times, I’m bored by that.

Mad Max was an excellent example of real people doing very well rehearsed but dangerous things. There’s a tension when we do stuff for real that you can’t recreate. We have the same stunt team they had on Mad Max so I wouldn’t be surprised if we see an increase in those kinds of action films in the future.

Did you get to do a lot of your own stunts?
I’d love to say, “Yeah, I do all my stunts,” but I mean, I’ll do as much as I can. I’ll do the stuff that matters when you come in close. Then there’s things like jumping out of a speeding truck that’s driving fifty miles an hour. I’m not going to do that.

If a stunt guy sprains his ankle or breaks his leg, worst case scenario, it’s of course really bad and tragic, but if one of the leads of the film does that the whole production is in jeopardy.

What’s your favorite scene?
There’s this big bar scene right before the final act. It’s quite obvious that the world is going under and we’re all going to die, and there’s not much we can do about it. A couple of the others are like, “Fuck it. We’re all going to die,” so they head into this bar and everybody becomes kind of candid and a quite honest conversation ensues. It was just like a real drama scene with seven people… and a crocodile.

“Suicide Squad” is in cinemas in August 2016.

Up to date ranking of the best crime TV shows on Netflix, including The Killing, starring Joel Kinnaman, Mireille Enos and Billy Campbell in the suspenseful detective drama.

The Killing is our featured show from the crime TV genre this week as we update our list of the 50 best crime TV shows on Netflix. The former AMC-turned-Netflix series moves up 14 spots in this week’s updated rankings, from No. 44 to No. 30.

While on AMC, I think the series may have been lost in the shuffle of the network’s other brilliant shows like Mad Men, The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, which takes up the top spot on our ranking.

But just because The Killing didn’t get the widespread acclaim and monstrous rating that their network brethren received, that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a thrilling and suspenseful show worthy of praise.

Mireille Enos is spectacular as homicide detective Sarah Linden. She was all set to retire from the force and leave Seattle and relocate with her son Jack. But things take a dramatic turn for the worse when a bloody sweater is found in a field and she must work with the man who was set to replace her. Joel Kinnaman, who is in Season 4 of House of Cards, plays Detective Stephen Holder and together they must work to solve the murder of Rosie Larson.

And there is a big twist in the murder investigation that ties in the local government that makes The Killing an edge-of-your-seat murder mystery thriller. I just wish the show received the attention it deserved when it was on the air before Netflix revived it.

So check out The Killing if you’re in the mood for a good crime TV series and check out our ranking of the 50 best from that genre and see if there is something else that you may want to add to your watch list.

“Politicians and actors have some things in common” reflects Joel Kinnaman as we chat via webcam (watch above) about his role as a governor running for president on the Netflix drama series “House of Cards.” As he explains, “Actors come from a genuine place and exploit it for different roles and situations. If it’s a memory like about someone who died, it can almost feel foul when you use it to take it to an emotional place. Politicians come from a genuine place as well of believing things. Then they exploit that and run the risk of muddling their moral compass.”

Kinnaman joined the fourth season of this Emmy-winning series to play Will Conway, the Republican opponent of President Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey). He vividly recalls the scene where these political titans face each other for the first time. “When Will came to the Democratic convention, he and Frank ended up in a room together. It was a 15-minute scene. I’m originally a theatre actor and Kevin is closely connected to the stage, so it felt like a play.” And, he notes, “You don’t always get that in TV. To play a one on one scene like that with one the top three or five actors in the world was a lot of fun.”

The actor describes in detail what that scene revealed about their characters. “It’s the first time they see each other. They realize, even though on the outside they are very different, that at the core they are quite similar animals.” For him, “this meant there is some appreciation and admiration for each other, that they both were big enough to show. They are political predators where power is the end game. This whole political theatre is a means to an end. It’s all about getting that power.”

As to whether his character is as evil as Frank, Kinnaman says “he has the capacity but the fact that Will has kids may soften him up a bit.” However, he is quick to point out “any kind of riskiness, pales in comparison to the madness that is going on now with America’s Berlusconi. It’s so terrifying. Let us do the entertainment.”

YAHOO.COM – As we enter Emmy season — nomination voting runs June 13 to 27 — Yahoo TV will be spotlighting performances, writing, and other contributions that we feel deserve recognition.

He should’ve gotten Lead Actor love for The Killing. But academy voters have the chance to make it up to Joel Kinnaman with a Supporting Actor nomination for Season 4 of House of Cards, in which he plays New York Gov. — and Republican POTUS contender — Will Conway.

Conway is a charming, highly photogenic family man and military veteran, and despite the many others who’ve gone up against Frank Underwood (and lived, or not, to regret it), he may just be the guy old F.U. can least afford to underestimate. Kinnaman’s confident, layered performance — we just know there’s some big stuff yet to be revealed about Mr. Conway! — made his character and his showdowns with the plotting President Underwood among the best reasons to binge-watch Season 4.

Kinnaman, who’ll star in the summer blockbuster Suicide Squad before continuing to battle Frank in Season 5, talked to Yahoo TV about his playlike face-off with Kevin Spacey’s prez in Season 4, getting the chance to help shape his character with the collaborative Beau Willimon and House of Cards writers, and the surreal experience of Season 4 not being able to out-outrageous real world politics.

Oh, and for our fellow fans of The Killing, Kinnaman has a really great idea about what Stephen Holder and Sarah Linden might be up to these days.

Yahoo TV: Will’s the first character that really felt like a formidable opponent for Frank, the kind of opponent we’ve been waiting to go up against Frank.
Joel Kinnaman: Thank you. That’s awesome to hear. I mean, that was my hope going into it. I thought it was such a great character. Beau Willimon’s writing is just delicious, and it was real cool to feel how, on the outside, they seem very different, Will and Frank, but then when it gets down to it, they’re two very similar animals. They just kind of went at it.

You were a fan of the show, right, before you signed on?
Oh, yeah. I don’t think it ever [took] more than three days before I finished a season when it came out.

What, specifically, attracted you to the Will role?
I mean, probably the position that he was in… a presidential candidate that’s already so far along. When you’re on a show where the writing is so good, you get a little bit of a feel for what it would be like. That’s really interesting. Then it’s the show in general, that I just love the tone of the show, and of course, the chance to go head-to-head with Mr. Spacey. That was also a lot of fun.

I love the scene where Will and Frank meet to talk alone in Episode 9. That must have been incredibly fun to film.
It was. That’s the dream scene in a way, because the scene was stretched out over the whole episode, but we shot it all in one piece. It was almost a 15-minute scene, just me and him in one room, and then you really get into it. It feels like you’re back on stage. Many times when you do TV and film, even if it’s very good writing, you rarely do scenes that are more than three or four minutes. When you do something that’s 12 minutes and it really has an arc, then you really start playing off of each other on another level, especially with someone like Kevin, who’s so skilled and is such an excellent theater actor. Me coming from theater as well, I think that was one of the reasons why we both really enjoyed that so much. We have somewhat similar styles of approaching the profession and material, so I think that was one of the reasons why we had so much fun playing that.

Were you two really playing the cellphone game Agar.io during that scene?
We sure were.

Had you played before?
No, never. I think a day before the scene I found out what it was, and got into it.

COMICBOOKMOVIE.COMThe focus on David Ayer’s Suicide Squad has mainly been on the villains of the film, but what about the guy who has to deal with them personally? Find out what it’s like to be Rick Flag in this latest interview…

In order to lead a team of some of the world’s deadliest villains, you’ve got to be tough and maybe a little crazy. As Rick Flag, leader of Task Force X, Joel Kinnaman realizes that when dealing with psychopaths, he has to be ready for all kinds of surprises. During an interview with Total Film Magazine, Kinnaman spoke about the endeavors and surprises Colonel Rick Flag has to face when dealing with the Suicide Squad. “He wants to solve this with his team of operators that he can trust, but now he has these psychopaths that do no follow orders. Over the course of the movie he sees how effective they are and also that they have a moral foundation that they stand on.”

Even if the villains have a moral foundation, he certainly can’t turn his back on them for a moment. So what does he do? He brings along a Katana. Rick Flag isn’t alone when dealing with the Suicide Squad as Tatsu Yamashiro aka Katana, played by Karen Fukukara, is his partner/bodyguard on this mission to deal with who knows what. “She’s got my back,” says Kinnaman about his mysterious partner. “We have a history but it doesn’t really get explained.” Fukuhara went on to add that even though Katana is there to protect Flag, she finds herself feeling at home. “Her journey is trying to find people she can trust. She starts off a lone wolf, but by the end of the movie she’s really become part of a family.”

HOLLYWOODREPORTER.COM – Yeah yeah, someone else is always the prom king or queen, or top of the class. But these 30 stars, gathered together on April 15 in L.A., comprise this year’s Emmy supporting actor contenders, second to none and most likely to succeed.

Getting 30 of TV’s hardest-working actors in a room for three hours was no small or easy feat.
