Suicide Squad Tops International Box Office In Second Weekend

After pulling in $133.3 million at the international box office in its debut weekend, David Ayer's Suicide Squad scooped up $58.7 million (from 62 markets) in its second frame, pushing its international total to $242.5 million and its global total to $465.4 million.

$58.7 million is a 56% decline from last week's debut; however, that's not as steep of a fall as the 66% drop Zack Snyder's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice experienced in its second frame overseas; although, it is a bigger sophomore decline than Guardians Of The Galaxy (40.5%) and Deadpool (36%).

Suicide Squad debuted in first-place in Argentina ($2.5M on 314 screens) and Italy ($2.2M on 477) and held on to first-place in Brazil ($22.9M cume), the UK ($29M cume), Australia ($17.5M cume), Mexico ($19.5M cume) and Russia ($20M cume).

It feels good to be bad… 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 based on the characters from DC Comics, the film stars Will Smith ("Ali"), Jared Leto ("Dallas Buyers Club"), Margot Robbie ("The Wolf of Wall Street"), Joel Kinnaman ("RoboCop") and Viola Davis ("The Help"). The cast also includes Jai Courtney ("Insurgent"), Jay Hernandez ("Takers"), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje ("Thor: The Dark World"), Ike Barinholtz ("Neighbors"), Scott Eastwood ("Fury"), Cara Delevingne ("Paper Towns"), Adam Beach ("Cowboys & Aliens"), and Karen Fukuhara in her feature film debut. It is produced by Charles Roven and Richard Suckle, with Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Colin Wilson and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.
