Suicide Squad passes Captain America: The Winter Solider and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 at the box office

18 September 2016 12:08 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Though it received some rather dreadful reviews and some pretty bad publicity following its release, Suicide Squad has earned another notch on its box office belt this weekend.

Gorssing another $4 million from this weekend, Suicide Squad has now passed both Captain America: The Winter Solider ($714 million) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($708 million) at the global box office. The bad-guy-team-up now sits at $718 million worldwide.

Suicide Squad is now the fifteenth biggest comic book movie of all-time, sitting behind X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Amazing Spider-Man, Deadpool and Guardians of the Galaxy. Its DC Extended Universe cohort Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice sits on $873 million.

Suicide Squad tops $700 million worldwide, David Ayer thanks fans

11 September 2016 9:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having surpassed the global haul of Man of Steel last weekend, Warner Bros.Suicide Squad has hit another box office milestone today, with the DC supervillain team-up crossing the $700 million mark at the worldwide box office.

Given that it’s a new superhero franchise, based upon a lesser-known comic book, and was absolutely ripped to shreds by critics, it’s certainly an impressive achievement, and director David Ayer has taken to Twitter to show his appreciation to fans:

David Ayer wanted to cast Shia Labeouf in Suicide Squad​, but Warner Bros. thought he was too crazy

6 September 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Variety, Shia Labeouf has revealed that his Fury director David Ayer hoped to cast him in Suicide Squad in the role of GQ Edwards (subsequently played by Scott Eastwood), only for Warner Bros. to veto the idea.

“The character was different initially,” states Labeouf. “Then Will [Smith] came in, and the script changed a bit. That character and Tom [Hardy’s] character [later played by Joel Kinnaman] got written down to build Will up. I don’t think Warner Bros. wanted me. I went in to meet, and they were like, ‘Nah, you’re crazy. You’re a good actor, but not this one.’ It was a big investment for them.”

Suicide Squad overtakes Man of Steel at the worldwide box office

4 September 2016 2:58 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may have suffered a torrid time from critics, but audiences have certainly flocked to Suicide Squad, with the film overtaking fellow DC Extended Universe release Man of Steel at the worldwide box office this weekend.

The David Ayer-directed DC supervillain team-up has pushed its worldwide gross to $672.9 million – compared to the $668 million grossed by Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot back in 2013.

Suicide Squad still trails Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice by some $200 million, but had the film not been blocked from release in China, one would have to assume that the Worst Heroes Ever would be hot on the heels of the Trinity by this point.

It remains to be seen how much higher Suicide Squad can go, but $700 million looks all but assured.

A Few Words about Gene Wilder and Jon Polito

4 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Gene Wilder 1933 -2016

In all likelihood, the events of this past week probably didn’t offer any more or less sadness and pain to be distributed among willing and unwilling recipients, a.k.a. all of us currently participating in the game of Life. It’s a strange, unsettling time to bear status as a citizen of the world, wherever it is in that world one happens to call home. But speaking as only one of billions buffeted about by the weirdness of a human condition in which terrorism has started to feel commonplace, and in which the policies of political campaigns are used as flimsy opportunities to stir fear, prejudice and an increasingly volatile mythology of helpless American victimization at the hands of hordes of murderous invaders, the sorrow contained in this past week crested perhaps a little higher than might have even been expected.

He was 65. Polito, who was diagnosed with melanoma in 2008 and recently suffered an infection following a surgery, slipped into a coma Sunday and was taken off life support Thursday evening.

Polito's friend, director John McNaughton, also confirmed the actor's death on Facebook. "Very sad to learn that my dear friend and collaborator, »

David Ayer thanks fans as Suicide Squad hits $600 million worldwide

26 August 2016 2:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite being mauled by critics, Warner Bros.Suicide Squad has proven to be a solid hit at the box office, with director David Ayer taking to Twitter to thank the fans for helping the movie hit the $600 million mark worldwide…

@SuicideSquadWB 600 million worldwide! Thank you to everyone for making this a success! @WarnerBrosEnt

David Ayer (@DavidAyerMovies) August 26, 2016

Ayer may have jumped the gun slightly, as Box Office Mojo only has the film grossing $582 million by close of play on Wednesday. Nevertheless, it looks likely that the DC supervillain team-up will cross $600 million globally this weekend, although it is expected to fall from top spot at the U.S. box office after three weeks at number one.

Suicide Squad tops domestic box office for third consecutive weekend

21 August 2016 12:07 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Suicide Squad has continued its impressive run at the North American box office, topping the chart for the third consecutive weekend – a feat that neither Man of Steel nor Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice managed to accomplish.

Suicide Squad is expected to pull in around $20.7 million domestically over the Friday-Sunday period, having brushed aside competition from Ben-Hur, which tanked in its opening weekend.

The DC supervillain ensemble has earned $262.2 million in the States, and its worldwide haul now sits at $572.6 million. That puts it ahead of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men: Apocalypse, which earned $542.7 million earlier this year, and it has one major market left to open in, Japan, where it debuts on September 10th.

Suicide Squad crosses the half billion mark at the global box office

18 August 2016 3:27 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may not have impressed critics, but Warner Bros.Suicide Squad is certainly proving to be a big hit with audiences; the film smashed the August domestic opening record, and has now surpassed the half billion dollar mark at the box office, with the DC supervillain team-up hitting $509 million around the globe in just 13 days.

“It is incredibly rewarding to see audiences around the world coming out in such a big way for Suicide Squad,” states Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, president of worldwide distribution. “We have several major markets yet to open, and expect to continue seeing strong returns at the box office for the weeks to come.”

“We’re thrilled with the huge numbers on Suicide Squad, and to be coming out of an already highly successful summer with such a big win for our slate,” adds Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing and distribution. “The film is in position »

Suicide Squad suffers big drop but fends off Sausage Party to stay top of the box office

14 August 2016 12:49 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After smashing the August box office opening record last weekend, Warner Bros.Suicide Squad managed to fend off competition from the adult animated comedy Sausage Party to hold on to top spot domestically, but much like the previous instalment of the DC Extended Universe, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it suffered a rather steep drop.

The David Ayer-directed supervillain team-up grossed $47.7 million – down 67.3% from last weekend – while Sausage Party followed in second place with $33.6 million. Suicide Squad is now up to $222.8 million on home soil, and has grossed a solid $465.3 million worldwide so far after just twelve days.

Will Suicide Squad have enough legs to reach the reported $750 – $800 million mark that it is said to require to turn a profit for Warner Bros.? Or will the lack of a release in China cost it? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below…

Jared Leto says The Joker and Superman would be interesting to see on screen together

13 August 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the release of Suicide Squad, Jared Leto took a moment out from complaining about how many of his scenes ended up on the cutting room floor to say that he’d like to see his Joker going up against Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight in the Batman solo movie, and now he’s told IGN that it would be interesting to see the Clown Prince of Crime sharing the screen with the Man of Steel.

Superman seems like a lot of fun though for the Joker,” said Leto. “The Joker and Superman would be interesting to see on screen because Superman’s so stoic and morally-centred. I think that the Joker would really enjoy that. Superman is just the classic hero, and The Joker opposite any classic hero would be really interesting.”

Suicide Squad crosses $300 million worldwide

12 August 2016 2:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite getting a bit of drumming by the critics (our own Oli Davis went nuts about on the Flickering Myth Podcast), Suicide Squad is pulling in money around the world.

After a record breaking opening weekend, Suicide Squad has retained a lot of its audience and has now crossed $300 million worldwide. Its still a way off from the $750-$800 million it needs (and will struggle to get there without a Chinese release), but its a promising sign ahead of its second weekend.

Suicide Squad director David Ayer explains The Joker’s grill and ‘Damaged’ tattoo

10 August 2016 11:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Empire, Suicide Squad director David Ayer has addressed one of the most controversial aspects of the DC supervillain team-up – The Joker’s tattoos and grill – explaining how they came about.

“This is sort of my personal thing and maybe less about a larger connection,” said Ayer. “But Joker killed Robin and Batman basically smashes his teeth out and locks him up in Arkham Asylum. It’s in the asylum where Joker would have done the ‘damaged’ tattoo as a message to Batman saying, ‘You’ve damaged me. I was so beautiful before and now you’ve destroyed my face.’ That’s where the grill comes from.”

Jared Leto says there are enough deleted scenes from Suicide Squad for a Joker movie

9 August 2016 2:29 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jared Leto seems to have spent the majority of the press tour for Suicide Squad bemoaning the amount of his scenes as the Joker which ended up on the cutting room floor, and he’s been at it again during an interview with the BBC, stating that there’s enough for an entire Joker movie.

“I think that I brought so much to the table in every scene, it was probably more about filtering all of the insanity. Because I wanted to give a lot of options, and I think there’s probably enough footage in this film for a Joker movie… If I were to die tomorrow, maybe the studio would roll something out. Rated R or rated X performance in there somewhere.”

With Suicide Squad being critically panned, could Warner Bros. insist on further reshoots to both Wonder Woman and Justice League? Oli and Luke argue that the Dceu won’t be able to shake the studio’s interference until the newly created production house DC Films, headed by comic book mastermind Geoff Johns, is fully out of Warner Bros’ grasp.

Rumoured list of deleted scenes from Suicide Squad

7 August 2016 12:02 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the lead up to the release of Suicide Squad this past week, details emerged about two competing cuts of the movie, while Jared Leto revealed that many of his scenes as The Joker ended up on the cutting room floor.

Unlike Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which received an extended version for its home entertainment release, director David Ayer has stated that the theatrical version of Suicide Squad is the cut of the movie, and so it’s likely we’ll have to hope that many of the deleted scenes end up as a bonus feature on the Blu-ray and DVD release.

However, we may now have some idea of what was removed from the film, with a user on Reddit posting an alleged list of all the deleted scenes:

“In early cuts, the movie’s opening detailed June Moon’s possession by Enchantress in real time. Reshoots »
