Suicide Squad Doubles Its Opening Weekend for $267m Box Office Haul

Back at the beginning of the month, "Suicide Squad" wrapped up its opening weekend with $135.1 million at the domestic box office. Now, at four weeks out, it has doubled its domestic gross for a box office total of $267.255m.

According to Forbes, "Suicide Squad" shows a "2x weekend-to-final multiplier" and will conclude with a longer theatrical run than "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," Warner Bros.' earlier DC Film. During it's March-April run, "Batman v Superman" pulled in $330.36m following a $166m opening weekend, which resulted in a 1.99x multiplier. While "Suicide Squad" won't beat "Batman v Superman" at the box office, it will likely close with a 2.24x multiplier, as it's currently on track to bow out in the $300m ballpark.

Comparatively, "Captain America: Civil War" opened to $174 million and closed with $409m for a 2.35x multiplier -- which isn't too much higher than "Suicide Squad's" own 2.24x. Likewise, "Man of Steel's" $128 million premiere and $291m total puts it in a similar ballpark.

In addition to "Captain America: Civil War" and "Man of Steel," "Suicide Squad" finds itself in the company of "Amazing Spider-Man 2" (2.21x), "Spider-Man 3" (2.22x), "Godzilla" (2.15x), "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" (2.11x) and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2" (2.25x). It will also top Zack Snyder's "Watchmen" (1.94x) and the three "Twilight" sequels, which all pulled in just over 2x.

The next DC Cinematic Universe installment, “Suicide Squad,” stars Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo andAdam Beach as Slipknot and is now in theaters.
