Somewhere over the past year the line between television drama and reality blurred. There is a President who talks down to people, commit heinous acts of violence and depravity, we have issues with the Russians, and we live in a perpetual state of fear from terrorist cells worldwide… quick, am I talking about America 2017 or Season 4 of House of Cards? A show that cuts this close to reality is not going to be shy with the current scope of American politics, and I expect this will be a unique and interesting season for Netflix’s award winning political thriller. I wait with baited breath to see how far the writers will push the boundaries.
As much as I’d like to avoid being political on posts, it’s hard not to draw wild parallels between the 2016 Presidential campaigns and what’s going on with Netflix’s House Of Cards. A new trailer for the upcoming fifth season highly acclaimed Netflix original series just dropped, and despite it taking place in a fictional world, one has to imagine that there are at least some similarities to what happened in the months leading up to the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.
There’s the charts, the maps, the scandals, and the terrifying notion that someone not only thinks lowly of the people of a nation, but also that he is planning to rule it for the foreseeable future. Check out the latest trailer for House Of Cards below. Oh, and of course minor spoilers will follow.
Suicide Squad may not be the most popular film amongst critics and some fans, but it was one of the top-grossing films of last year. Warner Bros. third entry of the DC Extended Universe was polarizing in more ways than one. The loyal fanbase supported the film even though critics eviscerated it for having too many plotholes and a lack of character motivation. But if there is one thing that Suicide Squad suffered from the most, it’s the fact that the marketing campaign failed to deliver its promise on giving us the Joker (Jared Leto). Sure the Clown Price of Crime was in the film, but trailers and TV spots had assured us he would be a vital plot point. Instead, he was an unnecessary factor. Even Leto voiced his displeasure saying that he shot enough footage for a Joker movie. The extended edition supports that fact.
Aside from the narrative and pacing flaws of Suicide Squad, one thing the film mishandled was the way we saw the Joker (Jared Leto). As much as the marketing campaign hyped the character, we saw very little of the Clown Prince Of Crime. In fact, Leto, who himself was unhappy that there was so very little of him, said he shot enough footage to make his own movie.
Now, a new trailer to help promote the release of the Suicide Squad Extended Edition Blu-ray shows us how much of that Joker footage we were promised, plus a few other scenes that were in the original trailers but gone from the final cut.
