Deadpool was released a few weeks back and it has grossed a ton of money. The movie has set several records but it isn’t done yet.
It has now become the highest grossing R-rated movie in cinema history. It’s official, we all love Deadpool. Deadpool has earned over $746 million globally and has broken the previous record for the highest grossing R-rated movie ever set by The Matrix reloaded which was released back in 2003. That one made $742 million during its run at box offices around the world.
Deadpool got a lot of good reviews even prior to its release. That surely helped the movie on its way to a record-breaking $152.2 million opening weekend for an R-rated movie, leaving all other R rated titles far behind. I think we are assured a proper sequel. The movie has earned $349.5 million in the United States so far and now is aiming for another record. It may beat the current record holder Passion of the Christ which raked in $370.8 million. For Deadpool, nothing seems impossible right now.
Most superhero movies are not R-rated so this is a big deal. We will likely see more studios come out with R-rated superhero movies now since they know it pays off.
