Suicide Squad keeps plugging away as it remains on top of the box office for the second week in a row. 

Suicide Squad dropped an estimated 67.3% with $43,770,000 for its second weekend gross, compared to $133,682,24 for its opening weekend.

The drop is comparable to Man of Steel's 64.6% and Batman Vs Superman's 69.1%, but still good enough to beat Guardians of the Galaxy's second weekend gross ($42,124,92 at a 55.3% drop).

Here are Suicide Squad's box office numbers to date:

Domestic:   $222,874,728
Foreign:      $242,500,000
Worldwide: $465,374,728

Percentage drops for other movies' second weekend releases include:

Captain America: Civil War: -59.5%
The Avengers: Age Of Ultron: -59.4%
The Avengers: -50.3%
The Amazing Spider-Man: -44.2%
The Amazing Spider-Man 2: -61.2%
X-Men: Apocalypse: -65.3%

Thor: The Dark World: -57.3%

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?
