Weekend Box Office Report: August 5-7, 2016

08.07.2016

Suicide Squad blows up in a big way!

Some lesser-known villains of DC Comics stormed the multiplexes this weekend and put SUICIDE SQUAD on top at the box office with an estimated $135.1 million!

The bad guys beat up the box office record for biggest August opening weekend, shooting past the $94.3 million launch of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY in 2014.

Taking the role of assassin Deadshot for the movie also gave Will Smith his biggest opening, nearly doubling the $77.2 million start of I AM LEGEND in 2007.

For the latest round of live-action DC Comics adaptations, SUICIDE SQUAD's opening landed between MAN OF STEEL ($116.9 million) and this year's BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE ($166 million).

Director David Ayer's mission of unleashed super-felons, which cost a reported $175 million, has made an additional $132 million overseas (where it opened Wednesday) for a worldwide total of $267.1 million. Critics weren't kind to the PG-13 criminal carnage, giving the movie a current 26% average on Rotten Tomatoes.

Those costumed outlaws stole the action audience away from JASON BOURNE, who got knocked into second place with $22.7 million. Matt Damon's fourth time as the titular rogue operative lost 61% of business from its first-place opening last week, and has a 10-day domestic total of $103.4 million and a worldwide total of $195.3 million.

The R-rated comedy BAD MOMS held on to third place with $14.2 million, dropping only 40% from last weekend's opening for a $51 million 10-day domestic total (on a reported $20 million cost).

THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS kept its claws in fourth place with $11.5 million as the animated family feature from DESPICABLE ME creators Illumination Entertainment has sauntered past $500 million worldwide.

Gravity (or audience indifference) pulled STAR TREK BEYOND down the list from second to fifth place with $10.2 million for the weekend. The third entry in the rebooted series has a domestic total of $127.9 million, plus another $66.5 million from international territories (it expands further over the next few weeks).

The new Kevin Spacey-as-a-cat comedy NINE LIVES opened in sixth place with $6.5 million. The PG-rated movie from MEN IN BLACK series director Barry Sonnenfeld (!!) cost a reported $29 million and was neutered by critics with 4% on Rotten Tomatoes.

The horror movie LIGHTS OUT was in seventh with $6 million, bringing it to a worldwide total of $85 million on a production budget of $5 million. The thriller NERVE stayed in eighth place with $4.9 million, down 48% from its opening last week for a $26.8 million domestic total. The rebooted GHOSTBUSTERS and ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE closed out the Top 10.

Outside the chart, FINDING DORY finally swam out of sight (with $870 million worldwide and counting) and THE LEGEND OF TARZAN returned to the jungle. In limited release, Woody Allen's CAFE SOCIETY added 66 more screens (now on 631 total) for another $1.7 million.

Next weekend brings the live-action update of Disney's PETE'S DRAGON along with some R-rated food antics in SAUSAGE PARTY and Meryl Streep as infamously bad singer FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS, while limited releases include the Chris Pine/Jeff Bridges modern Western HELL OR HIGH WATER and Mel Gibson as a violently protective dad in BLOOD FATHER.

I really enjoyed Suicide Squad but I don't care for Leto's Joker. In all honesty, he felt kinda flat. I get why they made him this big boss gangster with grills and tats, but looking at BvS Batman, he could have killed Joker with his eyes closed. I just don't see him as that kind of threat to the Bat in this iteration. It didn't work for me, but I still enjoyed the movie for the Squad themselves.

Summer movie season finally started as summer is coming to an end. Trek, Bourne, and Squad were all a fun time at the movies. Never got to see Tarzan sadly, i think it looks good. Trek was my favorite of the summer. Suicide Squad was fun but the 2nd half had some issues.

This is great to see, hope it keeps going strong. I had a blast with Suicide Squad and would love to see a sequel. A Harley Quinn solo flick would be welcomed as well!

Critics grasping straws of pessimism

This movie opened opposite the flippin' Olympics, against crazy lopsided reviews, and is only the 3rd movie in this universe. BvS almost took home a billion and it was the 2nd movie in this DC universe. How did Marvel do 3 movies in? It took Avengers for Marvel to finally crack a billion.

My kid, who's 16 and was completely obsessed with this movie doing well, he's boycotting the next Marvel movie as a statement. His buddies are all over Twitter and Snapchat talking about boycott. This DC/Marvel rivalry might seem silly, but I garauntee DC prob lost anywhere from 10 to 20 million because of the reviews. Scoff at that, but the dollar will speak louder than words.

Yes, it took Marvel longer to get there, but they were using what were, at the time B-list characters from a mainstream perspective. Hulk may be an exception to that, but it was probably hurt by following only 5 years after the much-maligned Ang Lee. BvS had Batman and Superman, and Suicide Squad has Joker. The comparison doesn't really work.

I'm so sick of the Marvel vs DC rivalry nonsense. It's just as stupid as the Xbox vs Playstation rivalry. I don't want DC NOR Marvel to fail because the luxury of free will means I can enjoy both.
CA:Civil War and BvS I loved, why would I want one to fail? I agree that I don't get the hate critics are giving SS nor BvS but that doesn't mean I would want either properties to fail. That's crazy.

Dc is only getting good opening weekends because the quality Marvel has delivered. Movie goers expect the DC movies to be of that caliber. Which sadly they have not been, hence the huge drop off in box office dollars come week 2. DC is riding the success of Marvel, and letting fans down. Bring back good stories and characters like Nolan gave us. Then DC will rise above Marvel. Until then we are stuck with average comic book movies. Nothing great.

Happy to see it's making some dineros. I went Friday and posted how much I liked it and told my staff to go see it. A bunch of them went last night and they loved it, and I'm seeing positive posts on FB from my friends that have seen it so far, so hopefully decent word of mouth will shut the naysaying "critics" up.

Well I'm glad the movie did well. It's a solid movie. As to Rotten Tomatoes, we have seen that online cliques like gadget reviewers all live in a echo chamber all seem to know each other and love to smell their own farts more than fresh air from the outside. How else could you explain the universal solid reviews for turds like the 007 Skyfall.

Star Trek

Was easily the best movie of the summer and I'm sure their horrible trailers were responsible for this low box office. Suicide Squad was not the worst movie of the summer, but definitely not a "good movie" even if it is "entertaining" and it had some of the best trailers in recent memory (besides the teaser to Magnificent Seven)

Glad!

Glad to see Suicide Squad doing well; I enjoyed it quite a bit, and one of those that for some reason, the more I think about, the more I enjoy. Deserves it! Also caught Bourne this weekend, and thought it was incredibly well done (especially loved the climax, which is one of my favorite fights in a movie in recent years).

Not only did I watch Suicide Squad but Cinemark did a showing of the 1989 Batman. As a DC fan, this weekend is one of the greatest ever. So glad to see 2 different artist tackling awesome material!

Absolutely loved Suicide Squad and had a blast during the entire thing. Really happy to see it pull in the box office it has despite the not so generous reviews. The real challenge will be next weekend and seeing if the film will have any legs going forward. Definitely a much, MUCH better and enjoyable film these critics with sticks up their ass' are giving it.

And I'm sad to see that more people aren't checking out Star Trek Beyond. Easily one of the best films of the summer and a huge

Star Trek has only made a little more than 2/2 of its production budget back after three weekends, which is exactly where Ghostbusters was last weekend. Guess you can't call one a bomb without them both being bombs, right?

Star Trek still has some hope as it has some big foreign markets to open in yet, but I think Ghostbusters has pretty much opened in all the ones it can, other than France and Japan (I could be wrong), but I don't see it doing well in either of those. Trek is more loved and recognized so, I think it will do ok.

Win!!

This is must be a bittersweet win for WB/DC execs and fans alike as the movie crush a record previously hold by Marvel. I say bitter cause the crittics did affect what could have potencialy been an 145-150 mill oppening, but is a win no matter what.
The movie is not perfect but in no way is 26% bad. Way better than Thor:TDW, FF4.

Now hopefully it can hold onto its second weekend (although truthfully I don't know why I care); I saw it twice and liked it even more the second time around.

Cinemascore

Where's the Cinemascore for Suicide Squad? Doesn't it usually go right after you list what critics thought? This is the second time I've seen that happen...the first being the initial weekend for Batman v. Superman. Critics and audiences were divided once again with a fairly favorable B+ Cinemascore

Don't worry, the financial box office experts will soon come out of the woodwork talking about profitability and second week drops. Riddle me this as I asked on another thread but no one answered: How does Thor: The Dark World cost $175 million to make but is considered a financial success on $660 million worldwide and a drastically lower domestic opening post Avengers, but yet I saw someone say Suicide Squad needs to make $800 million to turn a profit?

How does Star Trek: Beyond tank on a larger budget but gets a sequel and people say it makes sense, but WB gets a hard time for not cresting $145 million? Why is the narrative so different? Not that it means a great deal to me as I'll never see a dime from any of these movies, but I don't understand the logic, other than a purposefully negative attitude about the DC Films product.

No idea where an $800 million break-even figure would come from for SUICIDE SQUAD, even considering an "unofficial" cost as high as $250 million. General rule of thumb is a worldwide total that's three times the production budget to be profitable strictly from box office (which the THOR sequel did, for the record. But Marvel movies also all feed a much bigger machine -- billions of dollars in merchandise sales.)

Hollywood trades (and Forbes) always analyze weekend box office business by day. Especially with genre movies, which tend to be frontloaded for Thursday night and Friday business when the fans with highest anticipation go, versus general audiences who are more likely to attend Saturdays. It also helps with calculating Sunday estimations(actual figures are tallied and reported on Mondays).

Critics can go eat a dick

This movie wasn't made to win any Academy Awards. It's from a comic-book. It's for the fans. I fucking loved it.

I'm prob the *ONLY* fanboy on this site (& in the 48 continental United States) that absolutely loved "Batman v Superman". It's my favorite movie of 2016, so far. Ok, I may be a bit bias since I've been a major Superman fan since...birth.

I applaud the DCU for taking a different approach than the MCU. You see, I've never been 1 of those fans who insists that everyone else

I say the more comic-book franchises to choose from...the better. I do understand that not every genre fan will agree w/ how Hollywood treats sequels / spin-off's, etc. ...but just some of the absolute, seething hatred spewed towards projects like "Star Trek Into Darkness", "Amazing Spider-Man 2", "Age Of Ultron" & "Batman v Superman"...I swear I will never understand.

Lol the laziest excuse in the book. "It's not supposed to win OSCARS or anything so it's okay for it to have bad writing, shoddy editing, incomprehensible action, boring villains, one-dimensional characters, and wildly inconsistent tone."

How about instead of accepting subpar material because it's "just" an action/superhero movie, we actually demand BETTER?

@MrScreenAddict - how about just enjoying a movie because you enjoy a movie? It's entertainment after all, and nobody has to give an excuse that you approve of as to why they like a movie you don't.

Nope, you have to hate it because...blah blah blah.

News to you, not everybody agrees with your list of criticisms.

Yes movies are for entertainment, and that whole Oscar excuse is stupid. A movie should still follow quality standards like The Dark Knight. A movie that wasnt "trying" to get any academy awards, but made a film with engaging characters, a strong story, good effects, and an unforgettable villain.

Movies like this are a jumbled mess of mediocrity that is only liked because it has comic book characters in it. If Suicide Squad was made not with famous super heros and new original characters no one has ever heard of, it would be trashed by you guys and critics.

You guys get all excited just because these characters are in it and don't look at the shit that surrounds them. I also find it funny that you guys are saying just enjoy it, because it's just a movie. You are telling me that you've never NOT liked a movie or was critical of one, or dare I say, called it bad?

Hypocrites all around. You are only allowed to LOVE this movie, not allowed to hate it for it's obvious flaws.

I really enjoyed Suicide Squad in a trashy 90's action throwback kinda way. I was entertained and only lost 47 brain cells in the process. $267 mil worldwide with beyond dismal reviews and opening weekend of the Olympics is a success by anyone's standards.
