The movie's opening weekend beat Kingsman: The Secret Service as the biggest non-Korean R-rated release ever.
At this point, it seems as if Deadpool is an unexpected juggernaut that just can't be stopped. You just have to look at some of its earlier records to see how successful this movie really is.
At the American box office, Deadpool had the largest R-rated opening of all time ($132.4 million), largest four-day Presidents' Day weekend ($152.19 million), and the biggest February Monday of all time. It was also the first R-rated film to open above $100 million and the first film in a year to open over that huge figure.
