Suicide Squad Breaks Monday August Record
Suicide Squad netted $13.1 million for its first Monday, which again beats out Guardians of the Galaxy's $11.7 million the Monday following its release back in 2014.
To date, Suicide Squad has made $146,825,722 domestically, $133,300,000 in foreign markets; for a currently worldwide total of $280,125,722.
While the reviews have been overly negative (and some say biased), Suicide Squad looks to be a hit by the fans as it's a fun movie and the actors are all top notch. Suicide Squad has been compared to the Marvel movies (which the critics always rave about) by a lot of fans as it contains that action and humor, but also just a so-so villain, which plagues the Marvel movies sans Tom Hiddlston's Loki.

"Suicide Squad" is now in theaters directed by David Ayer starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Scott Eastwood in an unknown role.
It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Supervillains, 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?
