Deadpool Doubles Projections for $150 Million Box Office Taking, Top-Grossing Film of 2016 (So Far)
Deadpool took $150 million in its first four-day holiday weekend domestically, already elevated to the top-grossing film of 2016 so far.
It laughed its way past Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Zoolander 2, after a drought that came over in the aftermath of Star Wars: The Force Awakens taking the world by its throat. Deadpool's originality and unique appearance is exactly what the cinema needed to spark some life into its audience, because we're never permanently satisfied.
That, along with its massive word of mouth, and its fantastic marketing strategy, has made Deadpool a massive hit, set to break various mini records before its time is up. There will be plenty of seconds and thirds for those who particularly fell in love with the foul-mouthed antihero.
