BOX OFFICE: SUICIDE SQUAD Projected For $51-$54 Million Second Weekend

Facing competition from Sony's Sausage Party and Disney's Pete's Dragon in its second weekend of release, David Ayer and Warner Bros.' Suicide Squad is currently projected for a runaway victory.

After earning $133.6 million in its first weekend of release, Suicide Squad is projected to earn another $51-$54 million this weekend.  

Thursday night, the film grossed another $8.2 million, bringing its current domestic total to $179.1 million.  With Sony's raunchy animated comedy Sausage Party projected for $15-$20 million and the family-friendly Pete's Dragon tracking for  roughly $25 million, Suicide Squad should be the #1 movie in North America for the second weekend in a row.  

Despite the negative reviews, many DC comic book fans are planning to support the David Ayer and the DCEU regardless.  Do you count yourself among their number?  Let us know in the comment section below.


FILM SYNOPSIS:  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?
