Tim Miller’s Deadpool concluded its domestic run at $363,070,709 million, which is quite impressive considering that the movie only had a reported production budget of $58 million. The R-Rated superhero movie also earned $412,634,673 million in various foreign markets over the course of 18 weeks for a worldwide total of $775,705,382 million.
Reynolds was surprised by the connection that he was able to make with audiences through Deadpool, a record-breaking R-rated superhero film.
“I knew that this was going to speak to the very core of the Deadpool fan base, and I knew they would embrace it. I think it just really landed at a fortunate time. We were right at ‘peak superhero,’ particularly in the sense that the superheroes were all intermittingly clenching their jaw muscles and brooding. Deadpool came along and sort of threw all that on its ass.”
“Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) is a former Special Forces operative who now works as a mercenary. His world comes crashing down when evil scientist Ajax (Ed Skrein) tortures, disfigures and transforms him into Deadpool. The rogue experiment leaves Deadpool with accelerated healing powers and a twisted sense of humor. With help from mutant allies Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), Deadpool uses his new skills to hunt down the man who nearly destroyed his life.”
Deadpool is out on Blu-Ray/DVD as well as purchasable through Digital Download. The sequel, directed by David Leitch, is reportedly eyed for a 2018 release.
