WARNER BROTHERS ACCUSED OF CHEATING THE BOX OFFICE FOR ‘SUICIDE SQUAD’!
‘Suicide Squad’ had a huge opening weekend, to the sum of $135million. This broke the record for biggest August opening weekend of all time. However, allegations are now flying that this figure is artificially inflated after T-Mobile bought countless tickets and gave them out to their customers for free as part of their “T-Mobile Tuesdays” promotion. This is similar to a situation earlier in the year regarding the release of Rihanna’s latest album ‘Anti’, in which Virgin bought a million copies and allowed customers to download them for free, artificially giving the ‘Anti’ album a platinum certification. The certification was later invalidated by Billboard.
