BOX OFFICE: DEADPOOL Continues To Break Records As It Sails Past $300 Million Worldwide
As expected, Deadpool shattered records in North America this weekend with an incredible haul of over $150 million for the four day weekend. That means the Merc with the Mouth has topped the previous record (held by Fifty Shades of Grey with $93 million last year) and now has one of the highest all-time debuts for a superhero movie.
Deadpool isn't just exceeding expectations, its shattering them! As the movie takes aim at $300 million worldwide by the end of today, you'll never believe how much it will likely have by next weekend...
Among its other accolades are being the biggest R-Rated opener of all-time (easily beating $91.7 million taken by The Matrix Reloaded some time ago) and the highest debut ever for the month of February. With a budget of only $58 million, Deadpool is officially a hit.
It's overseas where things are getting interesting though. Deadpool is set to pass the $300 million mark today and it's thought that it will go as high as $475 million by the end of next weekend. That means this movie is on track to easily surpass Ant-Man, and we could be looking at it having a final cume as large as any of the much bigger Marvel Studios releases.
A sequel has already been semi-confirmed, but you can bet your life Fox are already talking about that long delayed X-Force movie now...
