Deadpool To Win Third Straight Weekend, Crushing Gods Of Egypt At Box Office

Deadpool - Touch Yourself

Fox's foul-mouthed juggernaut keeps on trucking towards another $30 million dollar weekend and manages to piss off some Egyptian God's in the process.

Deadpool accumulated another $9 million on Friday, severely beating out Alex Proyas' new release God's of Egypt (4.8 million), as well as the debuting Triple 9 (2.1 million) and Eddie the Eagle (1.9 million).

While this is great for Fox, it foreshadows a long hard path to profitability for the CG-heavy God's of Egypt. The film cost $140 million to make, and at this pace it only looks to make about $14 million for the weekend (domestically). It will have to make up a ton of ground overseas to help pad that number.

  1. No surprises here. Gods of Egypt looked like a massive bomb from the first trailer.

    I completely agree.

  2. i completely disagree. it was great. fun and funny plus GODS

  3. making half isnt severely beating someone. plus do some research: with the tax credits gods of egypt cost less than 10 mil, so going into the release in was already in black. plus the film is number 1 (as of friday) in several foreign markets. we may never see a sequel (dont get what lionsgate could have been planning for other films with the way this one ended) but it will be profitable for the studio
