Warner Bros. has released the Comic-Con exclusive trailer after footage was leaked.
New footage of Suicide Squad was released at Comic-Con, in what was intended to be an exclusive treat for people who were physically present. However, one brazen fan with a camera illegally caught and leaked a very low quality video of the footage.
Warner Bros. worked, unsuccessfully, to remove the leaked Suicide Squad footage. Instead of continuing to try to erase it from the internet, which is essentially the same thing as trying to brush your teeth while eating Oreos, they have shared the video, the way it was intended to be viewed.
In a statement on Facebook, Sue Kroll of Warner Bros wrote:
“Warner Bros. Pictures and our anti-piracy team have worked tirelessly over the last 48 hours to contain the Suicide Squad footage that was pirated from Hall H on Saturday. We have been unable to achieve that goal. Today we will release the same footage that has been illegally circulating on the web, in the form it was created and high quality with which it was intended to be enjoyed. We regret this decision as it was our intention to keep the footage as a unique experience for the Comic Con crowd, but we cannot continue to allow the film to be represented by the poor quality of the pirated footage stolen from our presentation.”
