deadpool_70090

BAM. That’s right kids, Deadpool is kicking ass. Aside from being all sorts of awesome, the film is breaking box office records. Deadpool is up to more than $745 million worldwide making it the highest-grossing R-rated movie in box office history. The figures knock The Matrix Reloaded ($742.1 million) out of top place. Deadpool opened to $132.4 million in it’s first three days. The four-day Presidents’ Day weekend total was $152.2 million. It was the biggest R-rated opening of all time and the first R movie to pass $100 million in its opening weekend.

In North America, the film is still behind The Passion of Christ, having grossed $349.5 million in comparison to Christ’s $370.8 million. Not too shabby. . . .
