[Fantasia ’21] ‘The Suicide Squad’ to have in-person screening at Fantasia Film Festival

Kicking of the Fantasia Film Festival.

Press Release

James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad will be coming to the Fantasia Film Festival. In celebration of Fantasia’s 25th anniversary, the international film festival will be hosting a special event screening of the eagerly awaited Warner Bros. Pictures superhero action adventure. The in-person screening will be held on August 4 at Montreal’s historic Imperial Theater (birthplace of the fest) and tickets will be available to the public. The film releases in theaters on August 6.

The Suicide Squad is written and directed by long-time Fantasia friend James Gunn, who first attended the fest in 1997 and whose previous comic book blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy made its Canadian Premiere at Fantasia in 2014. Gunn’s no-holds-barred take on the DC team-up finds Super-Villains Harley Quinn, Bloodsport, Peacemaker and a collection of cons incarcerated at Belle Reve prison joining the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X as they are dropped off at the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.

The Fantasia Film Festival will be held from August 5 – August 25
