R-rated super hero flick ‘Deadpool’ is on track to become the highest-grossing R-rated movie in history. After just 10 days of release, the film has grossed $235.39 million at the domestic box office and $256.5 million at international box office for a global total of $491.89 million.
It’s already passed the lifetime domestic gross for last year’s franchise-launching mega-hit Fifty Shades of Grey, which held the record for President’s Day opening weekend, February opening weekend, and R-rated opening weekend until Deadpool bested them all last week. And Deadpool is, after ten days in release, #6 on the top ten highest-grossing R-rated movies ever.
Ahead of it on the list are The Passion of the Christ, American Sniper, The Matrix Reloaded, and the first two movies in The Hangover franchise.
After hearing all of the controversy surrounding an R-rated “X-men” film, we had to check it out for ourselves — and Deadpool definitely didn’t disappoint!
