You can’t stop Deadpool. He’s just always going to break records. The first Deadpool movie was the first superhero movie to get an R-rating, and it also went on to become the highest-grossing R-rated movie ever. So you might be wondering if its successor, Deadpool 2, will be able to continue that streak. Well, it came close.
Deadpool 2 has managed to bring in $125 million over its opening weekend. Some had predicted that the movie would be able to open above $130, but it fell slightly short. The original Deadpool movie earned $132.4 million domestically.
So both Deadpool and Deadpool 2 hold the title of the highest-grossing R-rated movies ever, with Stephen King’s It remake coming in third at $123.4 million. There was a possibility of it beating its predecessor as the first Deadpool movie had a four-day holiday which meant that they had an extra day to take advantage of.
That’s okay. Deadpool 2 is still a successful movie with mostly positive reviews. We did hear some news recently about Deadpool 3. Actor Ryan Reynolds has stated that he is not sure if there will be a third. We hope there will be. We will have to wait and see what happens. It would certainly be a success.
