All work and no play makes Harley Quinn a dull girl in the latest one-minute trailer for Suicide Squad. Margot Robbie plays the beloved DC Comics villain in the film written and directed by David Ayer, and she claims the spotlight popping gum and cracking skulls.
“I’m bored. Play with me,” Harley tells a guard in the new footage, via iTunes Trailers. Though she’s one of the incarcerated baddies enlisted for Amanda Waller’s (Viola Davis) suicide mission, it’s unclear what game this baseball bat-touting psychopath is really playing. The opening sequence shows Harley riding in an elevator and bashing an enemy while on said mission, but then she gets a text from the Joker (Jared Leto) that reads, “I am close be ready…”

Elsewhere, we see Joker’s favorite gal pal interacting with Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), Deadshot (Will Smith), El Diablo (Jay Hernandez), and Katana (Karen Fukuhara). Waller has a task for them all, though it’s still unclear what that is and whether or not it’s a front for her true intentions. In any case, she enlists these supervillains to complete a covert mission that will reduce their jail time if they succeed. If they don’t, they die.
The cast also includes Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Common as Monster T, and at least a brief appearance from Ben Affleck’s Batman. A recent promo also shows Ike Barinholtz as a prison guard, while Scott Eastwood seems to be playing one of Flag’s soldiers.
Warner Bros. is bringing out its stars for the studio’s panels at San Diego Comic-Con, but this film is already looking like a refreshing departure from the harsh tone of Man of Steel and Batman v Superman.
Suicide Squad will hit theaters on August 5.
