The long awaited Deadpool movie had surpassed every expectation by breaking no less than nine different box office records in its opening weekend. Deadpool’s awesome opening weekend success made the movie industry think about the financial expectations of R-rated movies.
Only after 4 days Deadpool clocked in a staggering $152.2M.
Fox conservatively projected the weekend for this R-rated supehero movie in the $60M-$65M range last week. Rival distribution chiefs had the Marvel anti-hero film as high as $80M. Both of them were far off.
