Suicide Squad Goes Big at the Box Office

Not even mixed reviews and a bumpy production ride could stop Suicide Squad, the film took in $267 million (USD) globally over its opening weekend, $132 million (USD) was from North America.

The US takings broke the previous August box office record of $94 million, which was set in 2014 by Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. The $267 million also beat out 2016's biggest surprise, Deadpool, which netted $264.7 million its first weekend.
