UK Box Office Weekend 5th July 2016: Suicide Squad easily takes the top spot on debut

Robert Hyde

Suicide Squad
There was just one major release this week there which basically means there was inevitably going to be a new film making its debut at the top, and as predicted Warner Bros. Suicide Squad does just that.

Continuing the DC Cinematic Universe that was started in Man of Steel and Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice this film does something the Marvel/Disney have not yet dared, put the bad guys front and centre.

And audiences have lapped this up with Suicide Squad topping the UK box office with an excellent £11.2 million, nearly as big as the much more anticipated Batman V Superman from March.

That superhero movie sank quickly at the box office so we'll be watching things closely to see if it does similar.

Worth noting is that if the chart listing was taken over the whole week then Finding Dory would sit at the top with £12 million.

Highest total grossing on this weeks top 10 is The Secret Life of Pets which has now grossed over £32 million, while longest stay on the box office is The Angry Birds Movie with 11 weeks.
