“Suicide Squad”‘s unconventional cast of anti-heroes was not enough to keep them in the top spot at theatres. As it turns out, the comically graphic presentation of the animated movie, “Sausage Party”, was far better at keeping the attention of audiences.

The comic book film that was distributewd by Warner Bros., was heavily slammed by critics. Despite this, it kept afloat at the box office, making $43.8 million, according to the studio’s estimates. However, the earnings of the film plummetted at a rate of 67 percent last weekend. The DC Comics film had an estimated production cost of $175 million, estimated domestic earnings of $222.9 million and worldwide earnings of $465.3 million.

“Sausage Party”, Sony’s R-rated comedy which was co-written by Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg came in second place, making $33.6 million, a step up from its original budget of $19 million.

“What is phenomenal about this result is it shows if you take risks and are high-quality and original in this marketplace, it can pay off big time,” said Josh Greenstein, Sony’s president of worldwide marketing and distribution. “It’s a big win for Sony.”

“Sausage Party” takes a similar approach to movies like “Toy Story” and “The Life of Pets”, replacing toys and animals with hilarious supermarket foods. Voices featured include Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen and Kristen Wiig.
