Deadpool Guts Box Office Records

Hollywood was stunned today to hear that Deadpool had beaten the competition senseless not only for this year, but every year previously. The movie eviscerated even the loftiest of expectations (originally set at $65 million) with a $135 million opening weekend. It has now supplanted The Matrix Reloaded as the #1 opening weekend for a Rated R movie. In just its opening weekend, it is already 36% closer to passing The Passion of the Christ as the highest grossing Rated R movie of all time.

The movie also lets 20th Century Fox have bragging rights as Deadpool has earned nearly 10 times more than Zoolander 2.
