“Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice” recently dethroned “Deadpool” at the box office. However the success of “Deadpool” has not stopped in the slightest as it has broken yet another record.
“Deadpool” has beaten the record previously held by “The Matrix Reloaded” as the highest grossing R Rated film in the world. Deadpool over the weekend nabbed an extra $5 million dollars in the box office putting it at $745 million which is more than the $742 million made from “The Matrix Reloaded.”
“Deadpool” is the story of Wade Wilson, an assassin who finds out he has cancer. In order to save his life Wade undergoes a sadistic program that disfigures him but at the same time helps him transform into the “Merc with the Mouth” Deadpool. As Deadpool, Wade seeks revenge on Ajax the man who disfigured him in the first place.
