Margot Robbie, the female lead in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie, participated in a shoot for Vogue titled “Australian Psycho”.
The short Australian Psycho clip is a homage to Mary Harron’s film from 2000, American Psycho, staring Christian Bale as a psychotic investment banking executive that hides his alternate psychopathic ego from his co-workers and friends as he delves deeper into his violent, hedonistic fantasies.

Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 4, 2016.
