Box Office: ‘Deadpool’ On Track For Record Presidents Weekend Box Office at $130 Million
“Deadpool” is overperforming at the U.S. box office this weekend. The superhero comedy starring Ryan Reynolds is expected to make $130 million during the four-day Presidents Day weekend.
According to Variety, FOX had originally pegged the movie to earn $60 million on its debut – but now it’s double that:
Should estimates hold, “Deadpool” will notch a new record for the biggest Presidents Weekend debut ever, topping the $93 million generated by “Fifty Shades of Grey” last Valentine’s Day.
Also bowing this weekend are comedies “Zoolander 2” and “How to Be Single,” which are each pegged to finish the four-day weekend with between $15 million and $20 million.
Wow! Congrats Ryan Reynolds. Finally. He really worked hard for this. Good job.
