During its second weekend of release at the box office, DEADPOOL remained at the number one spot, earning an estimated $55 million from over 3,722 domestic theaters. It bested Sony’s “Risen” ($11.8 mil), A24’s “The Witch” ($8.68 mil) and Focus Features’ “Race” ($7.25 mil), dropping 58.5% from its historic first 3-day weekend haul of $132.2 million; it’s current haul in the USA now stands at $235.39 million.
With $256.5 million coming from foreign markets, the film has garnered an astounding $491.89 million worldwide. It will soon join the coveted list of R-rated films that surpassed $500 million worldwide. That’s pretty crazy considering the film was made for just $58 million and NOT released in 3D; it did have a little extra push from premium IMAX screenings.
The Tim Miller-directed film starring Ryan Reynolds is the highest-grossing X-MEN film ever (domestically) when NOT taking ticket price inflation into consideration, surpassing “X-Men: The Last Stand” ($234.2 mil) and “X-Men: Days of Future Past” ($233.9 mil). If ticket prices were adjusted, it’d actually sit behind the original X-MEN trilogy and “Days of Future Past.” Worldwide, it’s “currently” the second biggest X-MEN film, behind “X-Men: Days of Future Past” ($747 million), which passed the $500 million mark after two weekends in 2014.
