Negative reviews be damned! David Ayer's Suicide Squad continues to defy critics, performing well at the box office and inching ever closer to $700-Million worldwide.
With one more day to go in the Labour Day weekend, the DC action flick currently sits at $297-Million here in North America, with analysts predicting that the film will cross $300-Million domestically at some point tomorrow. This means that, as of today, Suicide Squad has earned more money than Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel, which ended its North American theatrical run in 2013 with $291-Million.
Who would've thought that a ragtag group of villains could ever top the likes of Superman?
Overseas, Suicide Squad continues to perform equally well. As of today, the movie has banked an impressive $375-Million internationally, bringing its total worldwide take up to a very healthy $672-Million - easily topping the $668-Million earned by Man Of Steel just three years ago.
In short, with the film soon to hit $700-Million worldwide, Warner Bros. should be very happy with the box office performance of Suicide Squad and fans should expect official word of a sequel to drop in the very near future!
How much more do you think the movie will bring in before finishing its theatrical run?
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?
Starring Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney, Karen Fukuhara, Jay Hernandez, Adam Beach, Scott Eastwood and Ben Affleck, Suicide Squad is in theatres now.
