Deadpool broke several records past weekend and this weekend it has also broken several more box office records. Deadpool topped the weekend box office for second weekend in a row, earning a fantastic $55 million this frame (a 58% drop from last weekend) to bring its ten day total to a spectacular $235 million.
With that total, 'Deadpool has become the biggest X-Men' movie in a matter of just 10 days. Yup, it has surpassed the inflaton unadjusted lifetime domestic total of X-Men: The Last Stand ($234 million) and X-Men: Days Of Future Past ($233 million). And what makes this success more bigger is this movie's budget of just $58 million which is almost one-third of other X-Men movies.
It is now the sixth biggest R-rated grosser of all time and its 16th biggest superhero movie ( in case u wanna know).
As Chris Aronson, Fox’s domestic distribution chief says:
It’s one of those times where a movie becomes a touchstone in culture, it just becomes part of the zeitgeist and one of those movies you just have to see. That’s due to its uniqueness. People have never seen anything like this before.
Deadpool is sizeable victory for Reynolds and 20th Century Fox, who spent 11 years making the irrelevant movie, since its one of the rare comic book movies to be rated R.
