How to Watch ‘Suicide Squad’ for free online At-home

Here’s where you can catch James Gunn’s foray into the DC Extended Universe outside of the theater. Amanda Waller is putting the team back together for Warner Bros’ latest entry in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) and we have all the details on how you can watch The Suicide Squad online. The Suicide Squad is streaming today on HBO Max in 4K and Dolby Atmos.

Remember that stretch during the pandemic, where we hardly saw any new superhero movies? And you were all begging for Marvel, DC, anyone to release so much as a set photo that would give us some glimmer of hope for our superheroed future?

Well, we’ve fully swung to the other end of that pendulum. We’re once again at Peak Comic Book Movie. Since WandaVision debuted earlier this year, we’ve seen The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, Black Widow, and the Snyder Cut, for god’s sake. That’s just the main players. Now, the DC Extended Universe (still doesn’t roll off the tongue, really) is storming back with what just might be its best entry since Wonder Woman debuted in 2017: The Suicide Squad. After 2016’s Suicide Squad, which was directed by David Ayer, didn’t quite live up to expectations, James Gunn took over the reigns for a semi-reboot that makes for some of the most fun (and weird!) a superhero movie has been in quite some time. If you’d like to partake in the action, or just see Sylvester Stallone voice a giant shark, here’s how you can watch The Suicide Squad.

If you’re comfortable trekking to a movie theater, then early screenings for The Suicide Squad start as soon as early this Thursday evening. If you’re an HBO Max subscriber? Then life is pretty good for you, too. The service won’t do the cruel wait-until-three-in-the-morning thing to you, instead choosing to release the film at 7 p.m. ET this Thursday. So there’s really no excuse to hold off on this one, unless you’re that much of a Marvel stan. Either way, we support you.

What time is The Suicide Squad released on HBO Max

The Suicide Squad will premiere on Thursday, August 5 on HBO Max in the U.S. and will be available as part of your subscription to the streaming service for 31 days from its theatrical release. It’s expected to release at 7pm ET / 4pm PT to fall in line with the movie’s ‘Sneak Preview’ showings in theaters beginning at the same time.

How to watch The Suicide Squad in the U.S.

If you live in the U.S. and don’t want to head out to a theater to watch The Suicide Squad, then you’ll need to be an HBO Max subscriber to watch the film online. Signing up for HBO Max will cost you either $9.99 per month to watch with ads or $14.99 per month to watch ad-free. Additionally, the cheaper plan only allows you to stream content in HD while the more expensive plan allows you to stream content in 4K. However, it’s worth noting that you’ll need a subscription to HBO Max’s more expensive ad-free plan in order to watch The Suicide Squad online.

For the price though, you’ll also be able to watch a number of other Warner Bros. films online the same day they premiere in theaters including Malignant, Dune and even the latest entry in the Matrix series later this year. HBO Max gives you access to all of HBO’s original programming including shows like Succession, Mare of Easttown and Westworld and the service will even let you watch a number of popular shows from other networks such as Friends and even Rick and Morty.

Watch The Suicide Squad in the UK, Canada and Australia.

As HBO Max first launched in the U.S. and only recently launched in Latin America and the Caribbean, DC fans in the UK, Canada and Australia won’t be able to watch The Suicide Squad online. Instead, they’ll have to head out to a theater to see the new film but it will likely be available on other streaming services and VOD platforms later this year.
