Deadpool is pulling in more money than anyone could have imagined over the Presidents' Day holiday weekend. Early estimates called for a $65 million to $70 million opening, and Deadpool has shockingly doubled those estimates.

Deadpool broke records for a R-Rated film and February opening day with a $47.5 million debut on Friday. With Saturday numbers now in and projections for Sunday and Monday, Deadpool is estimated to bring in $135 million over the 3-day weekend and a $150 million plus over the 4-day holiday weekend.

 

With these opening weekend numbers, Deadpool takes the record for both biggest R-Rated movie opening ever and biggest President’s Day weekend opening ever. Deadpool also had the second best debut ever for the first movie in a new superhero franchise, trailing only The Avengers $207.4 million debut.

Deadpool is currently playing in movie theaters everywhere.

    Awesome! Like the post below, maybe we'll see a few R-rated superhero movie mixedvin now n then.I wouldn't expect Disney, but imagine a great, violent, graphic, bloody Batman/Joker film!!! Maybe flashbacks of Joker beating Todd to death with a crowbar, and Batman bashing the Jokers teeth in during a brawl (resulting in titanium grill).Affleck was in The Town, and that was violent.He could direct it.Introduce Jim Parsons as Riddler at the end.Big ass question mark drawn in blood in front of Wayne Manor.

  1. Fantastic, fantastic!!

  2. I wonder how many tickets are from misinformed parents that brought their kids..

    WB is a slow learner, but even they have to see this and start to figure out that ADULTS, the children of the 90s, are a huge driving force for these comic book movies.

    I still doubt we will ever see the R rated Batman we dream of, but its feels a bit closer to reality now.
