The Lord Of The Rings Done In Suicide Squad Trailer Style


It's been 6 days since Warner Brothers released the first official trailer for David Ayer's Suicide Squad and in that short time it has already racked up 28.4M views on YouTube. With it being so popular, it was only matter of time before someone produced a fan-made trailer inspired by it, though, I'm sure nobody expected it to be as expertly edited as this one which uses footage from Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Youtuber, The Unusual Suspect, begins his mashup with Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," which is a given, and then uses shots from The Lord of the Rings trilogy that mirror shots from the Suicide Squad trailer. Just as one example, the shot of Jay Hernandez' El Diablo admiring the fire he created in his hand is represented by Ranger Strider (aka Aragorn son of Arathorn) smoking his pipe in the Inn of the Prancing Pony.

Check it out in the video below.

Suicide Squad is set to be released August 5, 2016.
