We’re getting one final sneak peek at Will Smith’s most recent mission to save the world with as Floyd Lawton aka Deadshot in Suicide Squad. Smith and his team of dangerous-villain-turned-government-heroes work together to get personal revenge, while trying to save the world. While there’s no doubt that Smith will be the star of the show, the movie (and the trailer) also features Emmy-winning actress Viola Davis, who plays Amanda Waller, the head of a secret government agency. With these two starring in a film together for the first time, who wouldn’t flock to theaters for one of summer’s final hits?

Suicide Squad hits theaters nationwide on August 5.
