‘Don’t Breathe’ Passes ‘Suicide Squad’ To Top The Weekend Box Office With $22 Million

don't breathe

With Suicide Squad now in its fourth week, Don’t Breathe was able to creep up and sail past it to be the number one movie in America with a predicted $22 mil weekend box office performance. Suicide Squad has been number one for the past three weekends, but has declined to a $12 mil prediction this weekend. Suicide Squad will still comfortably take the number two spot in the country. Don’t Breathe had a Friday opening take home of $1.9 mil, which isn’t bad considering the film was made for only $10 mil.

Don’t Breathe is a horror/thriller film directed by Fede Alvarez and produced by horror connoisseur Sam Raimi. The film stars Jane Levy as Rocky, Dylan Minnette as Alex, Stephen Lang as the Blind Man, and Daniel Zovatto as Money, and it currently holds an 87% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Suicide Squad: Figuring they’re all expendable, a U.S. intelligence officer decides to assemble a team of dangerous, incarcerated supervillains for a top-secret mission. Now armed with government weapons, Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Captain Boomerang, Killer Croc and other despicable inmates must learn to work together. Dubbed Task Force X, the criminals unite to battle a mysterious and powerful entity, while the diabolical Joker (Jared Leto) launches an evil agenda of his own.

Both Don’t Breathe and Suicide Squad are now playing!

Jack of some trades, master of some others. That saying never really made a lot of sense to me.

      Do your job Marquis!!! Type something REALLY stupid!!! We dare you!

      • Carl

        By stupid I’ll assume you mean, differing from your opinion.

        • DoYouFeelInCharge?

          Nope. Marquis is a straight up troll, there’s difference between offering a constructive opinion and taunting people for attention or to bait them into an argument. A troll is a troll, doesn’t matter if you agree with them sometimes. They are still toxic to the fan community.

          By stupid I mean comments like this one: “He’s one of the few sane people on here.”

          Come on man, do not defend a troll.

      He’s one of the few sane people on here.

    Why does this make superhero movie news?

    • xxjinzaxx

      Probably Lang’s name being thrown around and from Avatar fame. Other than that, not a damn thing to do with super hero movie news.

    I really want to see Don’t Breathe. I want Stephen Lang as Deathstroke in the DCEU!

  • Marquis de Sade

    I really want to see Don’t Breathe. I want Stephen Lang as Cable in the MCU!

    • Napi

      I agree with you! Stephen Lang is a MUST actor for the comicbook movies.

    • Joey Wabi-Sabi

      Cable is not in the MCU. The MCU is way too childish to ever incorporate Cable or Deadpool.
      Also, I’m pretty sure he would rather be in a DCEU movie anyway, where there are a lot more epic and bada$$ characters to choose from.
