Forget the reviews, Suicide Squad has won the US box office after an absolutely HUGE opening weekend.


The reaction to the DC movie has been mixed to say the least, but no-one can argue with a first week haul of $135m.

Jared Leto, Margot Robbie and Will Smith all star in the movie, which sees all bad guys of Gotham come together to wreak havoc and save the world.

The film also recorded a strong international performance this weekend too, taking £277m worldwide.

The impressive haul includes $11.3m in Russia, $10.6m in Australia, $13.9m (£10.6m) in the UK, and… $0 in China.

Matt Damon's Jason Bourne is knocked down to number two with $22m, which takes the movie's total earnings to $103m.

There's little change elsewhere in this week's Top 5, with Kristen Bell and Mila Kunis' comedy Bad Moms staying at 3, The Secret Life of Pets at 4 and Star Trek Beyond is at 5.

Kevin Spacey's new family comedy Nine Lives lands at 6, while disturbing horror Lights Out is down one to seventh place with $6m.

Emma Roberts' thriller Nerve stays at 8 and Paul Feig's Ghostbusters reboot is down two to 9 with $4.8m, which takes the Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Leslie Jones movie's total earnings to $116m.

Finally, family animation Ice Age: Collision rounds out the top ten with $4.3m.

The top ten in full is as follows:

1. (-) Suicide Squad - $135,105,000

2. (1) Jason Bourne - $22,710,000

3. (3) Bad Moms - $14,2014,000
