Like Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, 20th Century Fox's Deadpool blew away even the most optimistic box office predictions.
On Monday, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn praised Deadpool for its box office success and its originality. Now Guardians of the Galaxy star, Chris Pratt, is offering up his own admiration for the R-rated superhero film.
"Believe the hype people! Deadpool is as good as they come! Great job Ryan Reynolds and T.J. Miller," Pratt tweeted. "Badass, twisted, dark, funny & fun!"
Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Deadpool hits theaters on Feb. 12, 2016.
