On the latest Secrets of the Sire #Podcast: We break down the aftermath of Suicide Squad’s record breaking opening. How can a movie that took in $135M still end up a flop? We discuss!

PLUS: We welcomed Bubba The Redneck Werewolf creator Mitch Hyman on the show to talk about his movie, the indie comic that inspired it and his 20 years in the business!

Check out an excerpt from the podcast:

On The dropoff from Friday to Saturday faced by Suicide Squad and how the reviews of the film played into it:

“The reviews are usually a barometer of a big drop next weekend. I don’t know that it’ll be as bad as Batman v Superman (which tumbled 69% after opening with $166 million in March) but it’s still not quite on par with what Marvel is doing. All their films received really high marks across the board.”

Suicide Squad is breaking all known box office records for the month of August. It will also end up the highest opening weekend for both Will Smith and Margot Robbie according to Deadline, with its impressive $135.1 million dollar opening.

And in the end, it still might be considered a flop like its 2016 DC predecessor, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
On this week’s Secrets of the Sire we’ll talk about the future of Suicide Squad. The good, bad and ugly and just who’s to blame if its second week at the box office drops off from it’s first week.

On the latest Secrets of the Sire #Podcast: The moment of truth is here for DC’s much hyped bad-guy superhero flick Suicide Squad. But with the reviews in from critics, it’s sounding more Batman V Superman than Deadpool. We discuss that and more with Human Echoes Podcast’s own Tony Southcotte!

Check out an excerpt from the podcast:

There’s a lot at stake for the DC movie universe when Suicide Squad debuts in theaters this Friday. And writer/director David Ayer knows it.

He told Entertainment Weekly as much when asked about the pressure he now faces, brought on by the dismal performance at both the box office and from critics of DC’s supposed tent pole superhero flick Batman V Superman.

“Two years ago ¬Suicide Squad was a tertiary [DC property]. No one knew anything about it. It was a cool little playground, and I was going to go make my movie,” David Ayer said in the interview.

That’s a very interesting statement. Let me read it again. “I was going to make my movie. Does this suggest that it isn’t his anymore?

“Now it’s like the hype bus. All of the attention has swung onto it, and it has to carry a lot more weight than it was ever intended to. I think it can sustain it. But it’s a lot of pressure. You definitely feel the pressure.”

The moment of truth is here for DC’s much hyped bad-guy superhero flick Suicide Squad, and writer-director David Ayer knows it.

He told Entertainment Weekly as much when asked about the pressure he now faces, brought on by the dismal performance by DC’s original tent pole superhero flick Batman V Superman.

“Two years ago ¬Suicide Squad was a tertiary [DC property]. No one knew anything about it. It was a cool little playground, and I was going to go make my movie,” David Ayer said in the interview.

“Now it’s like the hype bus. All of the attention has swung onto it, and it has to carry a lot more weight than it was ever intended to. I think it can sustain it. But it’s a lot of pressure. You definitely feel the pressure.”

PLUS: We interview actor Kevin Bacon and his brother Michael about their rock and roll band!

Check out an excerpt from the podcast:

Kevin Bacon Interview

MD: The six degrees of Kevin Bacon took hold before the idea of “going viral” even existed. Do you revel in it? Are you sick of it?

KB: I don’t know if I revel in it so much. But it’s one of those things that doesn’t show any signs of going away. I think the idea is actually sort of a powerful one because [even] if you take me out of it, everyone wants to be connected.

Am I technically one degree now after this interview?

KB: Technically, no [laughs]. We have to be in a film together. But if you’d like to consider yourself one degree, as far as I’m concerned, that’s fine.

Kevin Bacon: “Driver” is a really simple song [with] a complicated back story. [My] sister came up with this idea to create something [personal] for each other [for Christmas]. And this song just popped into my head. I made a funky demo and sent it to her. The song sort of exists as a memory of summer love.

Host Michael Dolce:

“I want to thank Marvel for consistently changing my show topic the day of.

So, it’s been a crazy week for writer Brian Michael Bendis. First, the acclaimed writer made headlines for replacing Iron Man with a 15-year old black female in the pages of Invincible Iron Man. Now he takes aim at one of Marvel’s major heavy weights in the new Civil War II comic — literally!”

This week on Secrets of the Sire we look at the controversies behind two summer tent poles: the all-female Ghostbusters that opened this week and George Takei’s surprising comments surrounding the announcement that John Cho’s character Sulu will be gay in the new Star Trek Beyond film out the 22nd of July.

First Ghostbusters: sure the director thinks you’re sexist – but is the movie actually any good? Read more about it here: http://www.inquisitr.com/3297419/ghostbusters-stars-take-shot-at-sexist-haters-but-is-the-film-actually-any-good/

Then, George Takei is one of the most famous openly gay celebs in the SciFi world, but even he didn’t dig the fact that John Cho’s version is now gay. Can’t label him a homophobe, but is he off base? Read more about his decision here: http://www.inquisitr.com/3287301/star-trek-beyond-george-takei-urged-writers-to-keep-sulu-straight/

Plus: We welcome Filip Sablik of Boom! Studios to give us the low down on all the new WWE comics Boom! has officially been licensed to produce and what else they have in store for #SDCC.
