Jeff Goldstein, who’s the executive vice president of distribution for Warner Bros. has confirmed to Variety that Suicide Squad’s opening weekend box office was better than what they expected from the film. Goldstein also comments how there’s a major disconnect between critics and the audience seeing the film.
“It bested anything that we could have expected,” said Jeff Goldstein, Warner Bros. distribution executive vice president. “The marketing campaign was brilliant and the performances by the cast, starting with Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto, were just extraordinary. They’re fun and wicked and fans enjoy it.”
“There’s a major disconnect with between what the critics are saying and what audiences are seeing,” said Goldstein.
