Following the film crossing the $500M mark worldwide, it appears that Warner Bros.‘ Suicide Squad is also going to be the second superhero film to pull off a threepeat win (which was only pulled off by Deadpool so far) at the box office this year. Matiness currently have Suicide Squad currently eyeing around $20M for the weekend which is about a -55% drop. Before you jump to conclsions on that one, that drop is quite similiar to those seen by both Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice (-54.5%) and Captain America: Civil War (-54.7%) in their third weekends earlier this year. This number will push Suicide Squad past $260M at the domestic box office by Sunday, which will have it about +17% ahead of Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy‘s cume at around the same period.
The only film that could potentially put up a fight for the top spot this weekend is Sony’s Sausage Party, which is looking at around $17M for the weekend. It’s going to be a softer weekend when it comes to the new releases with both War Dogs & Kubo And The Two Strings neck to neck for the third place spot eyeing around $14-15M for the weekend. Ben-Hur thought appears to be crashing and burning with estimates pointing towards $10-12M for the film with an $100M price tag attached. What are you checking out this weekend?
