    "The Suicide Squad" Bombed At The Box Office — These Are The Reasons It's Still Worth Seeing

    "There is, in fact, a scene in which John Cena is in nothing but his underwear. And if you go to the movie for nothing else, he's also standing right next to Idris Elba."

    On today's episode of BuzzFeed Daily, we broke down the top pop culture headlines AND discussed The Suicide Squad's less-than-stellar box office performance. You can listen below or scroll down to read more about the interview! (WARNING: There are spoilers for The Suicide Squad in this episode!)

    So let's dive right into it! Recently we talked to Allie Hayes about The Suicide Squad and the future of superhero movies. Here's some of what we learned:

    BuzzFeed Daily: The movie is getting mixed reviews... You actually went to the set and you've seen it twice now. So what do you think? What's your view? Good? Bad? Should we see it? Not see it?

    BuzzFeed Daily: What performances stood out to you as the best?

    BuzzFeed Daily: A lot of people have seen it, but it's still a box office let down. Why do you think that is? Do you think this is like related to the streaming, or COVID, or just the movie? Why is it not performing as well as people hoped?

    We discussed Beyoncé opening about missing out on her “teenage years” and the stress she felt while building her music career, as well.
