Suicide Squad Made $500 Million in 13 Days, Expected to Be No. 1 Again This Weekend

    Suicide Squad has now raked in more than $500 million worldwide. Deadline reports that as of today, August 18, the film has pulled in $509 million, taking only 13 days to hit the half-billion mark. That's right around the same amount of time it took Deadpool to make that much money.
    The movie is already the highest-grossing August film in US history, outpacing Guardians of the Galaxy, which was the previous record-holder for the month. It's also the No. 11 movie of the year on a global basis and is expected to climb up a few spots this coming weekend.
    [​IMG]Suicide Squad is performing better internationally than in the US, having made $271 million overseas and $238 million domestically.
    Deadline reports the film is likely to remain the No. 1 movie at the US and international box offices this weekend. If it does that in the US, it would become only the fifth movie this year to stay on top for three consecutive weekends, following Deadpool, Zootopia, The Jungle Book, and Finding Dory. Suicide Squad goes up against new movies this weekend like War Dogs and Ben-Hur.
    Suicide Squad has yet to open in Japan and Germany, while it is not likely to be released in the major market of China.
    The movie's box office success comes despite a tepid critical reception from critics. According to a Suicide Squad comics writer, some critics came to their screenings prepared to hate it.
    Suicide Squad was directed by Fury's David Ayer and stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Joel Kinnaman, and Viola Davis. It follows a group of supervillains recruited by the US government for a mission in exchange for reduced prison sentences.
    Leto, the Oscar-winner who plays The Joker, has spoken about how many of his scenes did not make it into the final cut. Enough material was apparently left on the cutting room floor to fill an entire Joker movie. Robbie, who plays Harley Quinn, recently talked about why she thinks so many Joker scenes were cut.
