Sylvester Stallone is still knocking out the competition.
According to Deadline, the “The Suicide Squad” star has marked a monumental milestone, landing a No. 1 box office film for six consecutive decades.
Stallone, who plays King Shark in the James Gunn-directed DC flick, has released 46 films, with nearly half of them achieving the top slot.
Other movies on his lofty list include the classic “Rocky” (from 1976), “Rambo: First Blood” (1982), “Cliffhanger” (1993), the sports action flick “Driven” (2001) and “The Expendables” (the 2010 action film he both starred in and directed).
Some of his 20 box-office-topping hits also won glittery industry accolades, with “Rocky” landing Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director (for John G. Avildsen) and Best Film Editing; Stallone also was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role that year.
“Cliffhanger,” meanwhile, was nominated for three Oscars: Best Sound, Best Sound Effects Editing and Best Visual Effects.
In a review of Stallone’s latest, “The Suicide Squad,” Post film critic Johnny Olekskinski said the action star nailed the voice of Nanaue “with monosyllabic perfection” and said the character “is a worthy heir” to the fan-fave Groot from “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
