‘Suicide Squad’ Breaks Record as Fandango’s Biggest August Pre-Seller


LOS ANGELES – August 2, 2016 – “Suicide Squad” is crushing it at the top of Fandango’s Fanticipation movie buzz indicator with a powerful 97 out of 100 points, while leading Fandango’s weekend ticket sales.

“Suicide Squad,” opening in theaters on Thursday evening, is already Fandango’s top August pre-seller in the company’s 16-year history, eclipsing 2014’s blockbuster “Guardians of the Galaxy” and last year’s breakout hit “Straight Outta Compton” in total advance ticket sales prior to release. 

“Suicide Squad” is one of the year’s most anticipated movies,” says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis, “not just for its all-star ensemble led by Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, but because it serves up something uniquely inventive with its all-villain roster. Audiences are always looking for something special, especially before the summer ends, and “Suicide Squad” is that ‘it’ movie that everyone will be talking about.”

Timed to the release of “Suicide Squad,’’ Fandango is unveiling new fan art highlighting the film’s diverse cast, which can be found here.Also, movie fans can get their hands on “Suicide Squad”-themed gift cards, featuring Harley Quinn, the Joker and other characters, available here.
