  • [NR]

  • Aug 5, 2016

Even with it’s impressive opening weekend, it remains to be seen if Suicide Squad can maintain the top spot next weekend, especially with the current trend of films suffering from hefty second weekend drops. It’s current 26% rating on RottenTomatoes certainly isn’t going to help.

Another DC film released earlier this year, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, also had a record-breaking opening, only to end up dropping 69.1% in its second weekend.
