Who saw THIS coming?!
We figured Deadpool would show out pretty well, but raise your hand if you expected Ryan Reynolds‘ new flick to set a box office record!
The flick, which of course just opened over Valentine’s Day/Presidents Day weekend, took home a record $47.5 million on Friday!
That puts it in line for a roughly $117 million gross for the entire weekend, and a VERY strong four-day total of about $130 million across the entire holiday weekend!
If you want a reference, that puts it in the top-10 comic book movie openings EVER, and it’s the largest opening in superhero movie history for an R-rated flick!
Tracking before the weekend thought that the movie might do about $70 million these few days — and it more than doubled that amount!!!
By comparison now, Zoolander 2 and How To Be Single look like nothing now!
The sequel of Ben Stiller‘s infamous first film nearly two decades ago, Zoolander 2 is expected to total just about $18 million across the four-day weekend, putting it firmly in last place for the big three new openings behind How To Be Single.
But still, none of it even comes close to touching Deadpool… and all we can say is WOW!
Have U seen any of these three flicks in theaters yet?!
