12 Aug SoS Ep 30: Suicide Squad – DC’s Savior Or Worst Film Yet?
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.”
