‘Suicide Squad’ sets new box office record, beats ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and ‘Batman v Superman’

Suicide Squad keeps breaking box office records, despite getting slammed by critics. Last weekend it set the record for biggest August opening of all-time, and now it set a new record and beat this year’s biggest superhero movies!

Suicide Squad made $14.27 million in North America during its first Tuesday (5 days after its release), a record for August which was previously held by Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy ($11.9 million). But here’s where it gets really interesting…

Suicide Squad’s $14.27 million first Tuesday box office revenue is bigger than Captain America: Civil War’s at $13.76 million, Avengers: Age of Ultron’s $13.1 million, and even Batman v Superman’s $12.7 million first Tuesday numbers.

The movie came out in the summer instead of the spring, but that’s still kind of crazy! It just goes to show that audiences are really enjoying Suicide Squad and are having a lot of fun with it.
