Deadpool Reigns Over Third Weekend at the Box Office

Deadpool easily took the top spot for the third weekend in a row ($31.5 million) to become the third highest grossing rated R movie domestically, with Passion of the Christ ($370.8 million) and American Sniper ($350.1 million) still to conquer.  Worldwide, Deadpool has grossed $609.8 million and has a good chance to surpass The Matrix Reloaded's $742.1 million to become the highest grossing rated R movie of all time worldwide.

Deadpool is also the highest grossing X-Men movie domestically, and is quickly catching up to Days of Future Past's $747.9 million worldwide take.

Oh yeah... there were new movies this weekend...
Everyone is talking about (or not talking about) Gods of Egypt's dismal debut ($14 million). It reportedly cost $140 million to make. That's not a good return of investment. Even star Gerald Butler is already promoting his next film, London Has Fallen.

Eddie the Eagle ($6.3 million) and Triple 9 ($6.1 million) round out the newcomers.
