“Suicide Squad” Characters Harley Quinn And Deadshot Score Empire Magazine Covers

It’s still a long stretch before the August 5th, 2016 release of “Suicide Squad,” but Empire Magazine is featuring two of the film’s key characters on two new covers.

Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn and Will Smith's Deadshot both look incredible, sparking plenty of pre-release buzz for the much-anticipated flick.

Robbie told Empire, “When I got the role I started looking up Harley costumes online, with my mum sitting next to me. She was like, ‘My daughter is going to dress like a prostitute!’ There are a lot of angry mothers out there!”


#TinaFey And #AmyPoehler Cover #EntertainmentWeekly

They’ve already started plugging their new movie “Sisters,” and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler both look lovely on Entertainment Weekly’s latest cover.

Slated to hit theaters on December 18th, the new film draws from the “Parks and Recreation” star and the “30 Rock” actress’ real-life dynamic as siblings.

Poehler explained, “Neither Tina or I have sisters in real life. We are each other's chosen sister. Like most sisters, we've never dated the same guy and we're great in photo-shoots and fittings because we know what will look good on one another. We’re kind of like sisters and our parents are show business. We call each other to complain about how mom and dad have treated us at Thanksgiving.”
