Opening at 4,225 locations, the Warner Bros. and DC Comics’ anti-superhero film starring Margot Robbie and Will Smith scored the biggest August opening ever, topping “Guardians of the Galaxy”‘s 94.3 million dollars from 2014, according to estimated figures released by comScore.

Budgeted at 175 million dollars, “Suicide Squad” held a mere 26 percent rating from critics on RottenTomatoes and received a “B+” from first-night moviegoers on CinemaScore.

The poor reviews may lead it to an over 65 percent drop next weekend. The audience for “Suicide Squad” was 54 percent under age 25.

Last weekend winner “Jason Bourne” was far behind in the second place in its second weekend with 22.7 million dollars, facing a 62 percent drop from last weekend. This 120 million dollars budget film has grossed 103.4 million dollars in North America.

In third place was the comedy “Bad Moms” with 14.2 million dollars. It has earned a total of 51 million dollars in 10 days since its release.

Rounding out the rest of top 10 movies this weekend in the United States and Canada were “The Secret Life of Pets” (11.5 million dollars), “Star Trek Beyond” (10.2 million), “Nine Lives” (6.5 million), “Lights Out” (6 million), “Nerve” (4.9 million), “Ghostbusters” (4.8 million) and “Ice Age: Collision Course” (4.3 million).
