More Praise for “Deadpool” as it Opened #1 in 60 Countries This Weekend

“Deadpool’s” success keeps rolling in, as box office numbers all over the world report in their weekend earnings. “Deadpool” has already broken numerous national box office records, including biggest opening weekend in February, biggest opening weekend in the spring season, and biggest opening weekend for a rated-R movie.

Latest totals from Box Office Mojo indicate that nationally, “Deadpool” has taken in $150 million, and $132 million internationally, which brings its four day total to $282 million in box office earnings. The international totals are staggering, as is the fact that “Deadpool” was number one in almost every nation in which it opened.

The Wrap is reporting that out of 61 nations, “Deadpool” was number one in 60 of those nations. The only nation that didn’t put “Deadpool” in the number one spot was Poland — apparently Poland opted to see a more romantic film, which considering it was Valentines Day weekend, makes sense. Hopefully, since the film just made a quarter of a billion dollars over the weekend, news of an officially greenlit “Deadpool” sequel shouldn’t be far behind.
