You read that headline right: Suicide Squad has shot past the $500 million mark at the global box office less than two weeks removed from its Aug. 5 release. How’s that for a Rotten Tomatoes rebuke?

Deadline reports that the DC film’s current total stands at $509 million, after ending its second weekend with $466 million worldwide and accruing another huge chunk of ticket receipts in the first half of this week. Meanwhile, its domestic box office total is already at $238 million, after it scored the biggest August opening ever in North America earlier this month.

Suicide Squad will reportedly add German-speaking markets this coming weekend, and will open in Japan on Sept. 10.

Meanwhile, Suicide Squad’s soundtrack debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this week, and Jared Leto is still sort of bummed about how little the Joker is in the ensemble film. Listen to a full Suicide Squad in the latest episode of Back of the Class:
