BOX OFFICE: SUICIDE SQUAD Expected To Remain At #1 For Third Week In A Row Topping BEN-HUR And More

Despite a significant drop between weeks one and two, Suicide Squad looks set to join just a handful of 2016 movies to remain at #1 for a third weekend a few days from now. Hit the jump for details...

Despite a 67% drop in its second weekend, Suicide Squad looks set to become just the fifth 2016 release to stay at the #1 spot for three consecutive weekends. As a result, Task Force X join Deadpool, Zootopia, The Jungle Book, and Finding Dory, and yes, that means Suicide Squad will actually top Captain America: Civil War at the box office in at least one respect, a pretty impressive feat to be fair!

Deadline believes that the movie will suffer a 50% drop this weekend, meaning it should earn between $20 million - $22 million. That figure puts it ahead of Suasage Party and new openings like War Dogs (which should earn $15 million at most) and Ben-Hur. That's likely to gross no more than $13 million, and some analysts already believe that the reboot will be one of the summer's biggest flops.
