Suicide Squad Box Office Falls, But Not as Much as Batman v Superman

    After its record-setting first weekend, Suicide Squad took in around $43.77 million at the US box office this weekend. That's down a steep 67 percent and below expectations.
    However, the DC Comics movie's second-weekend dropoff is not quite as dramatic as Batman v Superman's. That movie's box office receipts dove 69 percent back in March for its second weekend.
    [​IMG]Despite the dropoff, Suicide Squad remained the No. 1 movie at the US box office this past weekend, according to Deadline, which supplied all the figures. The film broke a number of records for an August release, in particular shattering Guardians of the Galaxy's previous opening-weekend record.
    Suicide Squad has now made more than $465 million worldwide against a budget of $175 million, according to Box Office Mojo. A sequel is apparently already on the way.
    The No. 2 movie this past weekend was the animated comedy Sausage Party, which cooked up $33.6 million for its opening. According to Deadline, this raunchy comedy "stole a big chunk" of Suicide Squad's holdover crowd during late-evening hours.
    Additionally, it probably didn't help that American Olympian Michael Phelps swam in his final races this weekend, which may have kept some from going to the movies.
    Go to Deadline to see a full breakdown of this weekend's US box office performance.
