Suicide Squad Might Not Make It to China

Not safe for China?

Suicide Squad member Slipknot may be able to climb any wall with expert confidence, but Suicide Squad the movie is finding its box-office ascent precarious. Although it’s set to have a record-breaking opening weekend, a huge chunk of that change came from preorders, and the abysmal critical reception may well hurt the flick in the coming weeks, much like what happened with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. That makes this report from Variety all the more troubling for Warner Bros.: Apparently, Suicide Squad still doesn’t have a release date in China, and Variety’s sources suggest this might mean it’s too dark to get a Chinese release at all. Without that sweet, sweet yuan infusion, things might look grim and gritty for this grim and gritty film.
