THE SUICIDE SQUAD Takes Aim At $70 Million Opening Weekend At The Worldwide Box Office

The Suicide Squad has been playing in The UK and several other locations since last Friday, but is only set to open in the US and most other major territories this weekend. James Gunn's riotously entertaining DC Comics adventure has already amassed $6.7 million from five international box office markets, and looks set to climb to $70 million worldwide by Monday.

Deadline reckons the critically-acclaimed supervillain flick should take in at least $30M (possibly closer to $40M) from 4,000 US/Canada theaters, and $40M overseas. The movie set to play in most remaining markets from Friday, aside from Japan, where it'll debut on August 13.

This would be a solid opening for an R-rated film under normal circumstances, but it'll be even more impressive if it climbs to $70M or over in the current climate. Though vaccines are rolling out all over the world, there is still some concern surrounding the highly contagious Delta variant of COVID-19, and there are those that aren't quite ready to brave the theater.
