BUST INTO BELLE REVE!
Every day of the Con, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., have an immersive
“Suicide Squad” experience when we transform 6000 square feet of San
Diego’s Hard Rock Hotel into the infamous Belle Reve penitentiary—the
very place where the “worst of the worst” were incarcerated before
forming the Suicide Squad.
Take part in a live-action virtual reality experience, fighting
alongside Squad members in a scene from the film.

GET UP CLOSE WITH THE “SUICIDE SQUAD”

stars of the film will meet fans and sign movie posters.

From director David Ayer (“Fury,” “End of Watch”) comes “Suicide Squad,”
starring Oscar nominee Will Smith (“Ali,” “The Pursuit of Happyness”),
Oscar winner Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club”), Margot Robbie (“The Wolf
of Wall Street,” “Focus”), Joel Kinnaman (Netflix’s “House of Cards”)
and Oscar nominee Viola Davis (“The Help,” “Doubt”).
It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most
dangerous, incarcerated Super-Villains, provide them with the most
powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a
mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence
officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of
disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do.
However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for
their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide
Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Written and directed by Ayer based on the characters from DC, the film
also stars Jai Courtney (“Insurgent”), Jay Hernandez (“Takers”), Adewale
Akinnuoye-Agbaje (“Thor: The Dark World”), Ike Barinholtz (“Neighbors”),
Scott Eastwood (“Fury”), Cara Delevingne (“Paper Towns”), Adam Beach
(“Cowboys & Aliens”) and Karen Fukuhara in her feature film debut. It is
produced by Charles Roven and Richard Suckle, with Zack Snyder, Deborah
Snyder, Colin Wilson and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.
Ayer’s behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography
Roman Vasyanov (“Fury,” “End of Watch”), production designer Oliver
Scholl (“Edge of Tomorrow”), editor John Gilroy (“Pacific Rim”), costume
designer Kate Hawley (“The Hobbit” Trilogy) and Oscar-nominated visual
effects supervisor Jerome Chen (“Stuart Little,” “Fury,” “The Amazing
Spider-Man” films). The music is by Oscar-winning composer Steven Price
