The second Suicide Squad trailer went all in when showing the chaos about to erupt when the squad blows into town, but also onto the big screen. Anyone on the fence after watching the first trailer was sold on the second right when "Bohemian Rhapsody" started playing. The infectiously fun trailer was bound to others like it, take this Lord of the Rings mash-up.
Youtuber The Usual Suspect has taken footage of the beginning of one of the most popular film franchises, Lord of the Rings, and edited it to liken future box office success Suicide Squad to make for an explosion in geekdom we just can't get enough of. The Lord of the Rings trailer, to the tune of "Bohemian Rhapsody," introduces viewers to the merry travelers, the members of the dubbed "Ring Squad." There's Gandalf the Great, Legolas of the Woodland realm, and not one Joker, but two, Merry and Pippin. The trailer pays tribute to Suicide Squad trailer with moments of comedic relief, such as Gimli Son of Gloin saying things like, "I have the eyes of a hawk and the ears of a fox" before walking face first into arrows pointed at him, but also action packed battles featuring Aragorn slaying Orcs.
Instead of the "Worst. Heroes. Ever." tagline the Lord of the Rings trailer gets a "Kick. Orc. Butt." tagline. Usual Suspect even kept the December 2001 premiere date in the trailer, reminding viewers it's really about to be 15 years since the first LOTR. Check out the awesome trailer above.
