A comic book movie rated R released on Valentine's weekend is a risk Fox was willing to take, especially after Fantastic Four tanked at the box office several months back. This was a good move on Fox's part as Deadpool is potentially the best comic book movie of the year and definitely a breath of fresh air for the genre. Deadpool pulled in 135 million dollars opening weekend on a 58 million dollar budget. Yup Deadpool is definitely touching himself after making that much money. A movie that does a good job laughing at itself as well as the genre gave the fans what they wanted. A Deadpool movie done right. So chalk this down as a win for the "Merc with the mouth".
