Now that the updated figures are in for the initial Friday-Sunday opening weekend (with solid estimates for the four-day holiday frame), we can confirm without question that Deadpool just scored the biggest R-rated opening weekend all time. With a $132.7 million Friday-to-Sunday frame, it basically tied with the inflation-adjusted Matrix Reloaded debut ($91m in 2003, $132m in 2016 dollars). It is the first R-rated opening to cross the $100m+ mark, the biggest February debut, the 8th-biggest non-summer debut of all time, and the 17th-biggest opening weekend in history. Just think of how much more money it could have made if moviegoers weren’t so obviously getting weary of costumed superhero comic book movies!
