DC All Access provides an in-depth breakdown of the Suicide Squad trailer.
While the 7-minute video gives plenty of useful information, I particularly enjoyed their recommendations on which comic books fans should pick-up to learn more about each of the main characters.

Check it out in the video below.
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 is set to be released August 5, 2016.
