The makers of Suicide Squad have been frequently releasing promotional material to keep fans excited ahead of the film's release. Now, Warner Bros has released a new poster of Margot Robbie's character Harley Quinn.

The poster was shared on the film's Twitter account with a reminder that fans need to wait only a month longer to witness the collection of anti-heroes in action. According to ScreenRant, Suicide Squad was originally meant to be a side offering to DC's main films but the movie has taken centre stage after the poor performance of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice at the box-office.

The retro poster has Quinn holding her signature weapon – a baseball bat in her right hand – and a gun that peeks out from the holster she carries just below her left shoulder. Quinn is all smiles in the poster that displays the two words: "One month #SuicideSquad".

Argentinian magazine La Cosa Cine also revealed their new issue which has dual Suicide Squad covers. One of the magazine's covers shows Jared Leto's Joker up close and personal as he pulls back one of the balls representing Quinn from among the rest in a Newton's cradle. The other cover shows the entire team of anti-heroes striking a pose in their costumes.

Check out the official synopsis of movie:

It feels good to be bad... Assemble a team of the world's most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government's disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. US intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren't picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it's every man for himself?
