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?

The film kicked off the domestic weekend with particularly strong presales, continuing that momentum with sell-outs throughout the weekend.

Other markets that saw notable results include: France, the U.K., the Netherlands,Brazil, Ecuador, Australia, Hong Kong and the United Arab Emirates.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice represents the ultimate superhero movie showdown; given our rich history with these characters and Zack’s use of our cameras, we are pleased that IMAX fans around the world have responded to his version of The IMAX Experience® in this record-setting way,” said Greg Foster, Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp. and CEO of IMAX Entertainment. “We’d like to extend a huge congratulations to our friends and long-time partners at Warner Bros., Zack Snyder, Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder for this phenomenal achievement. We are honored to have been a part of this film in such a meaningful way and look forward to its continued global success.”

Director Zack Snyder captured several sequences of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice with IMAX’s extremely high-resolution cameras. As a result of this, only in IMAX® theatres do sequences filmed with IMAX cameras expand vertically to fill the entire screen, delivering IMAX audiences greater scope and breathtaking image quality.

The IMAX® release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was shown in its digitally re-mastered format, which includes the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology.
