It is projected to gross over $100 million in its debut weekend and eventually one of the highest grossing films of 2016 despite negative reviews. However, some box office analysts like Forbes‘ Scott Mendelson believe that the movie does not have to earn big worldwide to be considered a success. In Mendelson’s opinion Suicide Squad “which isn’t exactly cheap (at least $175m), could gross less than Batman v Superman and still be considered a ‘bigger’ success.”
