Suicide Squad's first test screening was scheduled for MCM Comic-Con in London next week, but apparently the movie couldn't wait any longer to give viewers a look. According to, the film screened Friday night in the Union City, California, theater Century 25 Union City, though most of us will still have to wait until August 5 to see it.

Several Twitter users who were in attendance have offered their reviews, and the overall reaction ranged from positive to extremely enthusiastic. 

Yeah, we're a little jealous, but we're mostly just glad to hear Suicide Squad lived up to the hype. The much-anticipated film follows a group of imprisoned anti-heroes hired by the government to save the world in exchange for their freedom. Will Smith, Jared Leto, and Margot Robbie star in the blockbuster-to-be.

Smith previously said the film's "not a movie about good vs. evil" but "a movie about bad vs. evil." Meanwhile, Robbie described her character Harley Quinn as "a psychopath who runs around gleefully killing people," so really, how could this go wrong?
