Suicide Squad Doubles Dominance On U.s. Music And Box Office Charts

  • 15 August 2016

The supervillain action film sat atop the North American box office for a second week in a row with a $43.8 million (£33.9 million) haul, and its accompanying star-studded soundtrack also had a successful weekend after debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 chart.

The soundtrack, which features the likes of Twenty One Pilots, Skrillex & Rick Ross, and Panic! at the Disco, marks the best sales debut for a soundtrack in a year and a half - the album for Pitch Perfect 2 was the last movie album to top the list in 2015.

Holding steady at second place was Drake's Views, while rock band Skillet came in at three with their record Unleashed.

Blake Shelton's If I'm Honest made a big jump from ninth to fourth place, while the new Now 59 compilation album debuted at number five.
