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.

Margot Robbie’s part of a post-apocalyptic love triangle in Z for Zachariah trailer.

Imagine Fox’s The Last Man on Earth, but with more danger—hello, radioactive streams—and more drama. That’s what you get with Z for Zachariah, an upcoming film starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Margot Robbie, and Chris Pine.

The film is based on Robert C. O’Brien’s 1974 novel of the same name, and follows a female survivor of the apocalypse whose life is made even more complicated when two men arrive at her remote valley farm. Judging from the trailer, Robbie and Ejiofor’s characters get off to a romantic start—but once Pine’s character shows up, the guns (literally) come out. Watch the trailer below:


Z for Zachariah arrives in theaters Aug. 21.

David Ayer Assembles His ‘Suicide Squad,’ Minus Jared Leto.

For fans looking forward to Suicide Squad, you have to follow the film’s writer/director David Ayer on Twitter. The guy loves dropping great teases from the set and production of the film and his latest is the best yet. Production starts very soon on the DC Comics film, scheduled for release August 5, 2016, and Ayer posted a photo from the table read.

In the photo are Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Cara Delevingne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Viola Davis and others. Noticeably absent is Jared Leto, who plays the Joker. Check out the Suicide Squad cast image below, which includes a few new faces too like Adam Beach and Ike Barinholtz.

So why no Leto? I’d guess it’s because they’re saving the reveal of what he’s going to look like for a later date. The actor was already on his Instagram a few days ago teasing the beginning of a transformation. It’s probably a good bet he’s got green hair by now, and we know DC loves to make big deals of reveals like that. Again, keep an eye on Ayer’s Twitter, much like another DC director, Zack Snyder.

The latest on the film is a rumor that it’s set between Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will be released 5 months prior. That would help set the stage for the relationship between Batman and the Joker, which is expected to be a pretty big thing moving ahead.

Tina Fey, Martin Freeman and Margot Robbie begin shooting on Taliban Shuffle.

In case you were wondering where two of today’s greatest comedic actors are, as well as one very lovely Harley Quinn, they’re in New Mexico shooting a film adaptation of “The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan”. The three in question are Tina Fey, Martin Freeman and Margot Robbie of course. The story will follow that of the journalist Kim Barker as she traverses the cultures of Pakistan and Afghanistan. The book is described as a “darkly comic and unsparing memoir, with Barker using her wry, incisive voice to find the humor and humanity amid the rubble and heartbreak.” It’s not much of a stretch to see Fey in that role, and she’ll also be joined by the likes Alfred Molina, and Billy Bob Thornton.

Directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (FOCUS, I LOVE YOU PHILLIP MORRIS) are bringing this project to light, and while the book’s synopsis doesn’t do much for me, those two directors are pretty great and at bringing A-list talent to their pictures and building fun characters for them to inhabit. If you haven’t already checked it out, the trailer for FOCUS gives us the most interesting Will Smith vehicle in some time. As far as I’m concerned, Tina Fey and Martin Freeman rank as some of the most charismatic, so I’ll be curious to see how this one will looks when it hits.

This untitled TALIBAN SHUFFLE adaptation will probably see a release sometime next year.
