By the end of the week, Deadpool will enter the top 50 highest grossing movies of all-time as it looks to eclipse the $300 million mark at the domestic box office. After three straight weeks at the #1 spot, the film will likely fall to third place, behind Zootopia and London Has Fallen. The three-day weekend frame should see the R-rated Deadpool accumulate another $36+ million worldwide, bringing its global box office total to $664 million. Not bad for a film that only cost $58 million to make.
Deadpool ~$300M currently ranks as the fourth-highest origin superhero film at the domestic box office, behind Iron Man (2008) $318M, Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) $333M and Spider-Man (2002) $404M. This year also has two more superhero origin films set for release - Doctor Strange (08/05/16) and Suicide Squad (11/4/16).
