Currently Suicide Squad is battling very low critic reviews, however that doesn’t seem to be keeping the film down!
According to a report from Variety the film has already been able to bring in $8.1 million across seven international markets, which includes South Korea’s $2.9 Million and France’s $2.7 Million. Looking at these numbers it is already set to pass box office jugernauts Guardians of the Galaxy and Deadpool – and it shows no signs of slowing down.
The film set to release in another 57 international markets and is tracking to bring in more than $100 million in those markets.
Warner Bros. has got to be happy with the film tracking like this in the international market because they spent a reported $175 Million in making the movie. So if the film performs as well here in the U. S as it seems to be in the rest of the world then they will be in the black.
However, things still are not all sunshine and rainbows for this film. The David Ayer directed film – which also stars Margot Robbie, Will Smith, and Jered Leto, has been panned by film critics. Claiming that the film is a “mess.” Currently the film is tracking at Rotten Tomatoes with a 30%, which is just above this years Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Hopefully, despite the film’s poor reviews, audiences are able to remain interested in the new supervillain movie.
