Say what you will about WB’s “Suicide Squad,” but director David Ayer’s film (or studio executives’ film, depending on who you ask) made a ton of money during its opening weekend.
According to Box Office Mojo, the gang of baddies beat the previous August opening weekend record by $40 million worldwide, rounding out at an estimated $135.1 million.
Which movie did it top? Why, it was the loveable Marvel Studios’ “Guardians of the Galaxy.” GotG grossed $94.3 million in 2014, which was a previous opening day record.
“Suicide Squad” is in theaters worldwide with a run time of 2 hours and 3 minutes.
