“Deadpool” Becomes Highest-Earning R-Rated Film Worldwide

Deadpool (Red Band Trailer)

Deadpool opened in February with the biggest opening ever for an R-rated film, and this week, it crossed another record.

Reports said the superhero film crossed the $746 million mark worldwide, making it the highest-earning R-rated film in history... beating out 2003's The Matrix Reloaded.

In the U.S., Deadpool has made more than $349 million to date... but has not reached a record for domestic earnings, which is currently held by 2004's The Passion of the Christ.

And, for Deadpool fans, a sequel got the greenlight even before the film hit theaters.
