Scathing reviews did not stop the supervillain flick "Suicide Squad", which has grabbed a whopping 135 million dollars in box office receipts in North America since Thursday night, one of the biggest debuts of the year.

Directed by David Ayer, the DC Comics film stars Margot Robbie, Will Smith and Jared Leto.

Warner Brothers, which is behind the film, faced mounting pressure after the disappointing performance of its previous "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."

And "Suicide Squad" even went into reshoots after the "Dawn of Justice" was releases, to give it a more comic and punk vibe, which seems to have worked well with fans.

Next up for Warner Brothers, which has years of DC Comics in the works, will be "Wonder Woman" next June.

Trailing behind the top earner over the weekend are "Jason Bourne," with around 23 million and comedy "Bad Moms" with 14 million dollars.
