It would not be a surprise to anyone that I'm very much looking forward to David Ayer's adaptation of DC Comics' The Suicide Squad which blasts its way into UK cinemas on Friday 5 August 2016.
What's not to look forward to? David Ayer is an intelligent talent who has written a number of fresh screenplays and has a directorial track record of serious dramatic action films made unique by the level of intensity he brings out of his cast like Christian Bale's in Harsh Times, Jake Gyllenhaal & Michael Peña in End of Watch, Arnold Schwarzenegger in Sabotage and Brad Pitt & Shia LaBeouf in Fury.
No doubt Ayers will be bringing a similar level of intensity to the Suicide Squad's already notable cast which includes: Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Cara Delevingne, Jared Leto, Ben Affleck, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Scott Eastwood (who is he playing?)

Stars: Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Cara Delevingne, Scott Eastwood, Jared Leto, Ben Affleck, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jay Hernandez, Karen Fukuharaoy
I have to say I've been constantly impressed by Jai Courtenay delivering the goods in every one of his roles and I can't wait to see see what he does with the small time weaselly criminal Captain Boomerang.

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?
The Suicide Squad are a seriously messed up team of bad asses and everyone knows that the villains get all the best lines and the best looks - so it's not entirely surprising that premium men's grooming brand The Bluebeards Revenge, a brand I use and rate myself has been named as the official marketing partner for the Warner Bros. film, Suicide Squad and for the campaign have adopted the tagline: “Making bad guys look good”.
Besides how can you not love a brand whose line consists of a fair amount of facial hair products with a head of marketing called Nick!
The Bluebeards Revenge has teamed up with the movie for an advertising campaign in the lead-up to its release in cinemas on August 5, and is running a huge competition to give one lucky person the chance to win an exclusive private screening for themselves and their friends as well as other runner up prizes - see below on how to enter.

Suicide Squad is a great fit for us, as it’s quite unconventional in that it centres around unlikely heroes. As a brand, we are also known for being out of the ordinary, with a tongue-in-cheek marketing campaign and an off-the-wall skull and crossbones logo, which is traditionally used as a sign of danger.”
We’re really excited to be a part of it all, and we can’t wait to see the film ourselves. It’s all set to be a very successful marketing partnership.”
