This year, a slew of full-on blockbusters hit theaters thanks to studios like Marvel and Warner Bros. On the comic book front, several adaptations like Captain America: Civil War and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice introduced themselves to moviegoers all over the world. But, when it comes to IMDB, it was Suicide Squad who reigned supreme.
According to the website, Suicide Squad was the most popular movie of 2016 on IMDB. Here’s what the ranking had to say about the supervillain flick:
“Anticipation was high for the first big-budget movie lead by supervillains. All the signs were good with a cast that included Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker and Margot Robbie as the baseball bat-wielding troublemaker Harley Quinn. Robbie stole the show and the film helped position her as IMDb’s top star of 2016. And while there were naysayers for the film, written and directed by David Ayer, Suicide Squad took more than $745 million at the worldwide box office and made it the most popular movie on IMDb in 2016.”
The rest of the IMDB’s ten most popular movies of 2016 are listed below:
Captain America: Civil War
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
The Jungle Book
The Magnificent Seven
Warcraft: The Beginning
The Legend of Tarzan
Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, 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?
Written and directed by David Ayer, the film starred Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, and Viola Davis. The cast also included Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne, Adam Beach, and Karen Fukuhara in her feature film debut.
