How Suicide Squad Became Second Most Watched Movie On HBO Max?
Due to the growth of the vaccination process (which, of course, is still not enough), cinemas have reopened in the last few months, but many of the potentially best-selling films have not performed well. It can be said that the biggest big event happened last weekend. The $ 185 million DC movie The Suicide Squad was the sequel to the original film, which, although better received, sold only $ 26.5 million. But it should not be forgotten that the main reason for this is free online screening. Suicide Squad, released in 2016, performed well at the box office.
According to Andy Forsell, head of HBO Max, The Suicide Squad is the second most-watched movie of the service over the weekend, which has also been released jointly in cinemas.
First place went to Mortal Kombat, which was released in late April and grossed $ 41.4 million in theaters. Of course, only $ 23.3 million of this amount is related to the release weekend. Overall, both films performed well, but making Mortal Kombat cost significantly less.
However, it can be said that The Suicide Squad other films such as Wonder Woman 1984, Godzilla vs. Kong defeated The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It and Space Jam, who also appeared on HBO Max.
It should be noted, however, that HBO Max made this claim only and no figures were provided. Therefore, there is still no specific method for conducting independent studies. Netflix follows the same procedure and does not provide specified figures for the serials of this service. It should be noted, however, that the re-emergence of the Corona virus also prevented many people from going to theaters for The Suicide Squad, and this has had an impact on the film’s cinematic sales.
