Deadpool Shatters Box Office Expectations with $135 million

The romantic comedy (according to Deadpool himself) film, Deadpool, obliterated all box office expectations this Valentine's Day weekend as it took in $135 million.  It has broken the record for biggest R rated film which was previously held by The Matrix: Reloaded ($91.8 million), the biggest debut for the month of February and also marks Fox's biggest opening weekend, ever. Overseas, Deadpool has already grossed $125 million.

That leaves other newcomers How to Be Single ($18.8 million) and Zoolander 2 ($15.7 million) to settle for 3rd and 4th place behind Kung Fu Panda 3 ($19.7 million).

In other news, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has surpassed the $2 billion mark worldwide... only the third movie to do so behind Avatar ($2.788 billion) and Titanic ($2.186 billion).
