The ‘Suicide Squad’ End Credits and VFX Reel Are Now Online
There may not be a lot of common ground between fans and critics of Suicide Squad, but one thing we can all agree on is the quality of the closing credits. Those swirling patterns of color and character icons that played behind the names of the crew were probably more colorful and fun than the entire last 45 minutes of the movie combined. So all of us — fans and critics alike — should be pretty excited that production company Buddha Jones has uploaded both the film’s final credits and a VFX reel to their Vimeo page.
Due to the privacy settings for the video, we cannot embed them, but feel free to click on the images below to watch them directly on Vimeo:
EDIT: It looks like Buddha Jones has pulled the footage from Vimeo, but we’ll keep the links active in case they put them back up sometime soon. Fingers crossed!
As noted by Heroic Hollywood, the VFX reel in particular shares a few images of each cast member that did not make their into the finished film. At this rate, by the time Suicide Squad hits home video, we’ll have enough new footage from its various featurettes and bonus material that some intrepid young editor would be able to try and recreate the alleged David Ayer cut from all the pieces left on the cutting room floor. Hey, the school year is about to start up again; any of you Editing 101 faculty want to make that the final project for your students?
For the five of you who have not seen the movie yet — you know who you are — here is the full plot synopis for Suicide Squad:
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?
