Suicide Squad opened to mixed reviews from fans and critics but continues to impress at the box office. Squad has officially passed $500 million in just 13 days since its release. Squad has earned over $238 million domestically, with an additional $271 million being brought in from overseas markets.
The film will be opening in Germany this weekend and Japan on September 10th.
Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President of Worldwide Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures, spoke out about the success of Squad.
“It is incredibly rewarding to see audiences around the world coming out in such a big way for ‘Suicide Squad.’ We have several major markets yet to open, and expect to continue seeing strong returns at the box office for the weeks to come.”
Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and Distribution, echoed that of Vandenberg and added that Squad is another great position this weekend around the world to impress at the box office.
“We’re thrilled with the huge numbers on ‘Suicide Squad,’ and to be coming out of an already highly successful summer with such a big win for our slate. The film is in position for another terrific weekend as our overseas expansion continues.”
It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, 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?
Starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Karen Fukuhara, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood and Cara Delevingne, Suicide Squad is in theaters now!
