Despite getting a bit of drumming by the critics (our own Oli Davis went nuts about on the Flickering Myth Podcast), Suicide Squad is pulling in money around the world.
After a record breaking opening weekend, Suicide Squad has retained a lot of its audience and has now crossed $300 million worldwide. Its still a way off from the $750-$800 million it needs (and will struggle to get there without a Chinese release), but its a promising sign ahead of its second weekend.
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. U.S. 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?
