In a statement on Facebook, Sue Kroll from Warner Bros. Pictures, said:  ”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," Kroll added.

In the movie. a secret government agency enlists a team of super villains known as Task Force X or The Suicide Squad who must work together despite their differences and hatred for each other in missions for shorter prison sentences.

The chilling film will star Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Cara Delevingne, Will Smith, Viola Davis and Ben Affleck.
