How about that?

Suicide Squad, despite the poor reviews, has again beaten out Guardians of the Galaxy, and now also beats out Marvel's Captain America: Civil War and The Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

Following Suicide Squad's record breaking August and Monday screenings, now it's learned Suicide Squad has broken the record for the Tuesday August box office.

Suicide Squad netted $14.27 million, which is actually up 9% from Monday. The number also passes Guardians of the Galaxy's first Tuesday and also beats Captain America: Civil War‘s $13.76 million, Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s $13.1 million and Batman v. Superman‘s $12.7 million Tuesday.

Suicide Squad is near $300 million worldwide:

U.S:        $161,087,183
Foreign: $133,300,000
Total:      $294,387,183

"Suicide Squad" is directed by David Ayer starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Scott Eastwood in an unknown role.


It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Supervillains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
