Margot Robbie Sizes Up Tina Fey in Hilarious Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Trailer.

Tina Fey is tougher than she looks!
In the newly released trailer for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Fey plays Kim Barker, an American reporter who travels to Afghanistan and Pakistan as a war journalist. She’s looking for a total change of pace from her monotonous life in the States, and as she quickly finds out, she’s in for that and much, much more.

Put up with other foreign reporters in what’s referred to as “the funhouse,” Barker (Fey) is quickly embraced by Margot Robbie’s character, Tanya Vanderpoel. “It’s so nice to have another woman in the house,” says Vanderpoel, pulling her in for a hug.

She then proceeds to size up her new female friend, telling Barker, “In Afghanistan, you’re a serious piece of ass…In New York, you’re like 6-7? Here, you’re a 9, borderline 10.”
“What are you here?” asks Barker. “Like a 15?”
“Yeah,” Vanderpoel admits.

Barker is on assignment for work, though, not just making friends, and before long she’s astonished to find enemy forces mean serious business. “These a–holes tried to shot us,” she screams.
But she allies with Vanderpoel, who wants to “go big or go home” in their quest for a story. They encounter plenty of interesting characters along the way and nearly get killed in the process.
This war comedy also stars Billy Bob Thornton, Christopher Abbott, Martin Freeman and Alfred Molina. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot hits theaters March 4, 2016.

Inside the magazine, readers get a glimpse of Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller and more.

The film’s plot is being kept under wraps so far, with mystery roles played by Common, Scott Eastwood, Ike Barinholtz, David Harbour, Jim Parrack, Corina Calderon and Raymond Olubowale.

Margot Robbie Talks Experience Filming Suicide Squad

Filming on Suicide Squad has wrapped, but we still have nearly a year until we will actually see the film. Margot Robbie, the first actress who will play Harley Quinn on the big screen in Suicide Squad, talked to The Guardian about her experience on the film and being involved in a project with a lot of hype behind it.

It’s pretty intense. It’s always bigger than you think it’s going to be. I definitely didn’t think it through when I took on the job, but once you’re in the midst of it, it’s too late to take it back. The whole comic-book world has such a huge fan base. But fortunately when you’re on set every day, you’re with the same crew, and the same cast every day for so many months, that you’re kind of sheltered from it. You get a taste of it when you do exterior shoots, like on the streets, and fans line up – you’re kind of reminded of how closely people are watching and anticipating it.

Hopefully Suicide Squad will live up to the hype. We’ll find out when it hits theaters August 5th.

SUICIDE SQUAD’S MARGOT ROBBIE ON FEARING THE JOKER AND ALMOST STARRING IN FANTASTIC FOUR

Actress Margot Robbie has admitted that she was intimidated by Jared Leto’s Joker when she started working with him.

“At first it was kind of confronting but now I’m so used to it, I think if I ever saw him out of makeup now I would be really confused,” she said in an interview with The New York Daily News.

“Actually, I saw him out of makeup once and I was actually petrified of him,” she said. “I was too scared to go up and didn’t know who that person was, and when he got back into his makeup I was far more comfortable.”

According to Robbie, playing a villain can be a lot of fun. Especially for her, as her character Harley Quinn is known for being eccentric and erratic.

“I guess the one common denominator is we’re all bad guys, it just makes everything more fun that way,” she said. “The scenes are more interesting I feel, when you just don’t know how the characters are going to react, especially with Harley, who’s absolutely nuts… she’s either going to kill you or laugh and give you a hug.”

Suicide Squad is Robbie’s first comic-book adaptation, but things could have turned out very differently for her as far as super-powered roles go. The actress says she was up for the role of Sue Storm in the recent bomb Fantastic Four (though the part ultimately went to Kate Mara).

“I didn’t really resonate with the script, and I haven’t seen the movie, so I don’t really know how it turned out different from the page,” she said. “But I had a great meeting with the director (Josh Trank) and I really enjoyed that. I guess it’s part of the game: Sometime[s] you win some, sometimes you lose some.”

Suicide Squad recently wrapped filming and will open in theaters on August 5, 2016.
