DEADPOOL Destroys the Box Office and Breaks All Kinds of Records

Joey Paur:

Over the weekend, Deadpool pulled in over $260 million worldwide. It made around $125 million internationally and $135 million domestically. That makes it one the biggest R-rated openings ever, surpassing The Matrix Reloaded‘s $91.7 million. It also now claims the record for largest R-rated comic book movie opening ever, previously held by Zack Snyder’s 300, which made $70.8 million on its opening weekend. Deadpool also takes the top spot for the 20th Century Fox’s biggest opening, beating Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, which made $108.4 million.

Last night we had tickets to watch The Choice, a Nicholas Sparks romance movie. When we got to the window to pick them up, we decided to switch the tickets to Deadpool. Best Valentines movie ever.
