The anti-superhero movie hits movie theatres on August 5, 2016. Written & directed by David Ayer and based on the DC Comics anti-hero team Suicide Squad, Suicide Squad stars Will Smith, Viola Davis, Margot Robbie, James Leto, Adewale Akinnuoye Agbaje, Cara Delevingne, Joel Kinnaman among others.
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.”
