Do you remember where you were when 23-year-old Margot Robbie came crashing into your life? I certainly do. Folks, I was in college, so you can only imagine that as soon as The Wolf of Wall Street came out, it was essentially played on a loop throughout the frat house. As if someone had turned the Degenerate Bible into a motion picture. I remember I had roommates getting banged up specifically to watch The Wolf of Wall Street at any and all hours of the day.
More so than the debauchery, though, what I most remember is being introduced to the previously unknown Margot Robbie, who stole both scenes and hearts as soon she graced the screen. Ever since that day, Robbie has gone on to become one of Hollywood’s leading A-list actresses, starring in films such I, Tonya, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Bombshell, and racking up two Academy Award nominations in the process.
Robbie’s next film, The Suicide Squad, is set to hit theaters and HBO Max on Friday, August 6, and according to Robbie, the James Gunn-directed film is “one of” if not “the greatest” comic book film ever made.
“It just so happens that this arguably one of the greats, if not the greatest comic book movie ever made,” Robbie said during an interview with Access Hollywood.
Look, given that The Suicide Squad does, in fact, star Margot Robbie, it has a better chance than most at becoming the greatest comic book film of all time. Although to be fair, I’m not sure anything will *ever* top The Dark Knight, so good luck!
The Suicide Squad — which stars Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, John Cena, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis, Peter Capaldi, Michael Rooker, Pete Davidson, Nathan Fillion, Alice Braga, David Dastmalchia, and Daniel Melchior — will hit theaters and HBO Max in the United States on Friday, August 6.
