Yesterday we reported that 20th Century Fox’s “Deadpool” had pulled in $45 million in its opening day at the box office. News is coming in now that “Deadpool” has soared past the $100 million marker both domestically and internationally, giving it the biggest opening weekend in February box office history.

According to Box Office Mojo, “Deadpool” made $135 million domestically and $125 million internationally this weekend. That officially makes it the one of the highest grossing comic book adaptations in history, and one of the highest grossing rated R films as well.

So far “Deadpool” has broken three box office records: Biggest opening weekend in February (beating out “Fifty Shades of Grey,) Biggest opening weekend in the winter (beating out “American Sniper,”) and biggest opening weekend for an R-rated film (beating out “The Matrix Reloaded.)

Considering this weekend celebrates both Valentines Day and Presidents Day, and with Monday being a public holiday, “Deadpool’s” numbers are sure to climb even higher. It’s likely it will also break the record for biggest four day weekend, and biggest Monday box office earnings.

“Deadpool” is currently in theaters and is directed by Tim Miller, written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, and T.J. Miller
