The previous holder of the record, The Matrix Reloaded, earned $91.7 million, followed by American Sniper, the Hangover Part II, and Fifty Shades of Grey, which all earned $80-$90 million in their first weekend.
Deadpool is the first R-rated movie from Marvel, which just proves that it has the hype and fanbase to pull something like this off. We reviewed Deadpool and thought it was a great introduction to the series, and Ryan Reynolds really pulled off the role. We also noted that there are tons of superhero movies to come in the future, so best keep your movie cards in your top pocket.
