‘Deadpool’: The Box Office Records It Broke (And Didn’t Break) On Its Insane Opening Weekend

20th Century Fox

Like the headline says, this is merely something of a rundown of the various box office records that Deadpool broke over the course of its opening weekend, as well as where it came in on the charts for records it didn’t quite break. Basically, this is a look at where the movie stands after just four days of superb day-to-day grosses ($132.7 million in Fri-Sun, $152.2 million in Fri-Mon). And without further ado, here we go…

Biggest R-rated opening weekend: With $132.7 million over its Friday-to-Sunday frame, Deadpool crushed the prior R-rated opening weekend record, set in 2003 by Warner Bros./Time Warner TWX +1.72% Inc.’s The Matrix Reloaded. Said (underrated) Keanu Reeves sequel opened with $91m over its Fri-Sun frame, which translates into around $132m today adjusted for inflation, However, for what it’s worth, it made its $91 million Fri-Sun opening after snagging $42 million from a Thursday opening day.
