The "Deadpool" movie has crossed the $300 million mark at the box office. Forbes reported that the film has become the third R-rated movie to garner $300 million at the domestic box office. It is also the 57th film to reach the milestone.
The "Deadpool" movie gained $311.16 million in 24 days and is one of the biggest grossing movies in America. It earned $16.4 million in its fourth weekend, a 47% decrease due to competition from "London Has Fallen."
The Merc with a Mouth has also earned $673.2 million globally. It has bested "Hancock" ($624m), "The Incredibles" ($631m), "Thor: The Dark World" ($644m), "Big Hero 6" ($657m) as well as "Man of Steel" ($668m).
What made the "Deadpool" movie's success almost miraculous was that it was played in 2D with an R-rating. Moreover, it was also banned in China, where movies earn a lot due to the size of its population.
It was previously reported that "Deadpool 2" may already be in the works. Fox has recently announced that the "Gambit" movie has been pulled out from their 2016 release schedule and that two unnamed Marvel films are taking over.
The "Gambit" movie release date was initially planned for Oct. 7. There have been no official announcements on the new release date for the film.
Fox has slated two new Marvel projects for Oct. 6, 2017 and Jan. 12, 2018. The first film will go face-to-face against Andy Serkis' "The Jungle Book: Origins," while the second release date will coincide with the sequel to Denis Villeneuve's "Blade Runner."
The publication noted, though, that the announcement did not include information on the special features for the Blu-ray version of the film. It could contain the usual behind-the-scenes clips and commentary.
