A Superhero film Deadpool of Ryan Reynold was released last month in Pakistan and it has officially made $745 million worldwide surpassing the 2003 film The Matrix Reloaded ($742.1 million) and becoming world highest grossing R rated movie ever in the history of box office.
The film is directed by Tim Miller and revolves around the story of Wade Wilson (Reynolds) who is looking for the man who gave him accelerated healing powers and a scarred physical appearance.
Deadpool has a total of $349.4 million in North America and is expected to exceed American Sniper ($350.1 million) to take second place on the domestic list of highest-grossing R-rated movies.
The Passion of the Christ still stands at number one position with a collection of $370.8 million from domestic ticket sales.
Back in February, Deadpool crushed expectations, opening to $132.4 million over three days and $152.2 million over the four-day Presidents’ Day weekend.
Not only did that earn the world highest grossing R rated movie opening of all time, becoming the first R-rated movie to pass $100 million in its opening weekend, but Deadpool had the biggest February opening in box office history.
An R-rating, implying restricted viewership, according to Motion Picture Association of America film rating system, is accorded to movies which can be watched by those under 17 only when accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.
