Deadpool Is Now the Highest-Grossing R-Rated Movie Ever, He Said Snarkily to the Camera

Dear Deadpool, you did sooo good…

Now who’s a good Deadpool? Since debuting in February with the best opening ever for an R-rated film, Deadpool is now the highest-grossing R-rated film worldwide, beating The Matrix Reloaded this past weekend to bring its total gross to $745.7 million. (The Matrix Reloaded finished at $742.1 million.) Now this is a worldwide total, not a domestic one. Stateside, Deadpool has a cumulative gross of $349.4 million, putting it well within striking distance of second-place holder American Sniper at $350.1 million and The Passion of the Christ, which still holds the record at $370.8. Easy, like curling up on a bearskin rug.
