DeadPool Broke Records In Opening Weekend, Gives Hope For Rated R Superhero Movies

Deadpool surprised the whole world opening with $135 million last weekend despite it being a rated “R” movie.

Comic book movies don’t really fall into the R movies often. Some movies like the Punisher or Blade didn’t wow the box office due to the violence going over the top. Some superheroes are meant for rated “PG 13” movies. But others aren’t meant for kids and Deadpool falls in that.

This was Ryan Reynolds first solo movie playing Wade Wilson, a mercenary who was in an experiment to cure cancer. It went terribly wrong, which resulted in an ugly face to a body capable of recovering to anything like Wolverine can do. Putting Reynolds on the screen as Deadpool ranks him in Hollywood’s most elite big-screen superhero movies.

It beat the 2003 opening weekend of The Matrix Reloaded by $4o million. This milestone makes Deadpool hold the new record for “R” rated opening weekends. It also beats Fifty Shades of Grey, which had $85 million for the month of February. The director Tim Miller also made history with the most successful opening weekend for any filmmaker’s debut.

Reynold made have changed the way superhero movies can be. Looking at shows on Netflix like Daredevil and Jessica Jones. They show the violence on screen, even if these heroes are kid favorites. Maybe the door finally opens for dark superhero movies as Deadpool continues to make a lot of money as a rated “R” movie.
