"The first bits of pre-release tracking are in for what is expected to be a final shot-in-the-arm for the 2016 summer movie season. Per Hollywood Reporter, David Ayer’s Suicide Squad is tracking for a $125 million debut weekend. Now tracking is not an exact science, but unless the reviews turn out to be both very bad and very much in the “You won’t get what you paid for” variety, I don’t see any reason for the buzz to go down over the next three weeks.

If the numbers hold, then Warner Bros./Time Warner Inc.’s supervillain team-up picture will easily set a new record for the month of August. The current record holder is Walt Disney’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which opened with $94 million two summers ago before legging it to $333m domestic (a 3.5x multiplier) to take the summer crown at the last minute.

That was a different situation in that the season was littered with lower-tier franchises like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and even Transformers: Age of Extinction stalled at $245 million while making $1 billion worldwide. So while the DC Films entry will probably not steal the live-action summer crown from Captain America: Civil War ($406m), it has a pretty good shot at easily being the second-biggest live-action release of the season."

 

I'm looking forward to watching this one. I hope Jared Leto's Joker will be half as good as Ledger's. Is anyone planning to go to the movies to watch Suicide Squad?

The cliche scene where he is laying in a circle of knives laughing makes me cringe, but I will see it.

Not that hyped for a group I have never heard of before. Joker and Harley yes, but the rest no.

I predict a bit less than Deadpool opening.

Although I will say that Queen songs in trailers are always a good thing for publicity.

It's gonna be huge. If reviews are decent the sky is the limit



If there are Pokéstops at the theaters, then I would agree.

Possibly the only movie I'm excited for this year so far.

There were others but this one got my attention.

Want to go see it n_n!

A movie where the audience roots for psychopathic killers is not for me. Sign of the times I suppose.

I will go watch it. Been waiting for this movie since day-1.



I will be there opening night. I see all comic book movies in the theatre.



I'll watch it but I'm skeptic because I feel that they got everything wrong with the characters:

- Deadshot being a good guy
- Harley not being funny
- Joker looks like a regular mob boss in make up and try-hard
- Killer Croc being a 10cm shorter than Batman
- Amanda Waller being a normal-sized human
