Suicide Squad VR Experience

Samsung and Warner Bros. partner up to bring the Suicide Squad VR Experience, debuting at SDCC 2016

Suicide Squad VR

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. and Warner Bros. Pictures are collaborating to bring fans exclusive Suicide Squad VR! Using Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus, fans will be transported into the DCEU and experience what it’s like being a member of the Suicide Squad. The content and experience will debut at San Diego Comic-Con on July 21st and will continue with exclusive content leading up to Suicide Squad’s August 5th release. Samsung will also have a presence at the Suicide Squad U.S. premiere and post-party.

On top of the Suicide Squad VR Experience, fans at SDCC will get an IRL experience with a recreated Belle Reve Penitentiary. In Belle Reve, fans can get a custom tattoo in Harley Quinn’s tattoo parlor, or ‘Join the Squad.’ Fans who ‘Join the Squad’ can create their own Suicide Squad character and shoot a short video of themselves to share on social media. Afterward, fans can create their own personalize skulls using the icon generator to live print them on their own exclusive t-shirt. Lastly, the cast members will also make an appearance in the space.

Fans unable to make it to the con don’t have to worry, Samsung has you covered:

Nationwide Retail Promotion

Fans who purchase a Samsung Galaxy tablet* at leading retailers will receive two tickets to see Suicide Squad when it opens in theaters August 5. The national retail promotion will run from July 15 through August 20, or while supplies last.  For more information and a list of participating retailers, please visit SamsungPromotions.com/SuicideSquad.

US Premiere

Samsung will celebrate the movie as an official partner for the U.S. premiere of Suicide Squad on August 1in New York City, including the after-party.  Samsung will create interactive experiences throughout the space to give attendees a chance to immerse themselves into the film using Samsung technology. Select Galaxy owners will also get exclusive red carpet access and a chance to see the film first.

Programming at Samsung 837

To coincide with the movie’s world premiere in New York City, Samsung 837, the brand’s experiential flagship where technology and culture collide in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, will feature special Suicide Squad VR content in the flagship’s VR Tunnel throughout the week of August 1.

*Qualifying devices are:  Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1, Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, Samsung Galaxy View and Samsung Galaxy Tab ProS

If you weren’t excited about the movie before, Samsung’s full immersive VR experience can likely change your mind. Basically, imagine being in the middle of all this:

If that doesn’t seem fun to you, please share whatever the incredibly high standard is. And if you’re at SDCC, be sure to check it out and talk about how cool the VR is to all your friends who can’t be there. SDCC starts in two days, and Suicide Squad releases August 5th or 6pm August 4th for people who can’t wait.
