According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tim Miller’s Deadpool opened to an incredible $47.5 million haul at the North American box office on Friday, which means that it could earn as much as $130 million, if not more, over the four-day weekend. The movie has already exceeded all expectations and will definitely shatter previous estimates which pegged its opening weekend to around $60 million.
The R-Rated movie opened to rave reviews and it’s already being reported that it’s getting a sequel, though we’ve yet to hear something official from 20th Century Fox. However, if it does indeed receive one, it will more than likely bring back director Tim Miller and writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. What do you guys think?
