One of the most anticipated movies of the summer if not the year is without question David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. While that film has yet to debut for general audiences – it opens August 5th – some fans out there are already envisioning the title team under the guidance of another director, like, say…Quentin Tarantino.
Loot Crate Productions put together a fun homage trailer to honor both Ayer’s style and Tarantino’s filmography; it’s also a clever bit of marketing for their upcoming anti-hero theme. While Ayer’s Suicide Squad consists of Will Smith’s Deadshot, Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney‘s Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne‘s Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman‘s Rick Flag, Jay Hernadez‘s Diablo, Adam Beach‘s Slipnot, Karen Fukuhara‘s Katana, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje‘s Killer Croc, Loot Crate’s Tarantino-style anti-hero group sees such ne’er-do-wells as The Bride, Django, and Jules taking on the bad(der) guys.
Watch the mash-up trailer below:

Here’s the official synopsis for the actual, Ayer-directed version of Suicide Squad:
Suicide Squad follows the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and takes place in a post-Superman world where the government tries to determine how to respond in the event that an alien with more villainous intentions visits Earth. Ruthless intelligence officer Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) offers to recruit society’s worst criminals, those possessing lethal skills and superhuman powers. Her first target: the possessed archaeologist June Moone/Enchantress (Cara Delevingne).
When Midway City is threatened by a powerful mystical enemy, Waller’s plan gets the go-ahead. She cuts deals with the whole squad of prisoners: Deadshot (Will Smith) gets his Second Amendment rights reinstated, Harley (Margot Robbie) is set free from her cage, Diablo (Jay Hernandez) steps out of his fireproof prison, Boomerang (Jai Courtney) and Slipknot (Adam Beach) each get to wield their signature weapons once more, and Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) emerges from the swamp. The only condition is this: Obey orders or die. This is strictly enforced by squad leader Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), the samurai Katana (Karen Fukuhara), and of course the explosive devices – developed by Wayne Enterprises – inserted into their necks. However, the arrival of the tatted-up Gotham City mega-criminal, the Joker (Jared Leto), might doom the mission thanks to his plan to reunite with his true love, Harley.
