It has been a rocky week for DC and Warner Bros’ latest comic book adaption Suicide Squad.  The week started last Tuesday when the review embargo was lifted for the film and it was not good.  Currently sitting at 26%, but these bad reviews didn’t keep fans away (at least on Thursday and Friday) and the film set the new August opening weekend record at 135.1 million dollars.

This, of course, is good news for the film, but it would drop over 40% in ticket sales by Saturday and Sunday.  This is particularly alarming for the film since it’s been report that it would have to make over $750 million in order to break even, and the latest batch of bad news for the movie is that it might not be released in China due to it’s dark content.

A film not releasing in China is pretty much as bad as not being released in the United States and can almost make certain that Suicide Squad will not reach that $750 million mark and a sequel not very likely,  or at least one headed up by David Ayer.
