Though it received some rather dreadful reviews and some pretty bad publicity following its release, Suicide Squad has earned another notch on its box office belt this weekend.
Gorssing another $4 million from this weekend, Suicide Squad has now passed both Captain America: The Winter Solider ($714 million) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($708 million) at the global box office. The bad-guy-team-up now sits at $718 million worldwide.
Suicide Squad is now the fifteenth biggest comic book movie of all-time, sitting behind X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Amazing Spider-Man, Deadpool and Guardians of the Galaxy. Its DC Extended Universe cohort Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice sits on $873 million.
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?
