Deadpool breaks the record for highest R-rated Thursday night preview

02.12.2016

The two aspects that Deadpool fans were worried about may be a thing of a past! First off, the film is bringing in some bitchin' reviews (check out ours here) and pleasing fans all over the globe. Noice! Secondly, it looks like this flick might actually make some money! How about that? The Hollywood Reporter is, ahem, reporting that DEADPOOL brought in $12.7 million during last night's preview screenings. Not bad for what's essentially a low-budget comic book film! For those keeping track, DEADPOOL now holds the record for the highest R-rated Thursday night preview!

With the production budget being about $60 million, this should help pave the way for a profitable theatrical run. I can't tell you how important that is, not only for DEADPOOL, but for comic book films down the road that deserve an R-rating. We know that the writers are hard at work on a sequel already, but this opening weekend will all but guarantee DEADPOOL 2 is inevitably coming to theaters! Chimichangas for everyone!

DEADPOOL is now in theaters!

Could not be happier because lets face it there SHOULD be R Rated comic book movies. Wolverine would be the top mainstream character that comes to mind for should be R Rated but has been teenified. So if this can make a big profit then maybe we'll start seeing studios take more chances with more characters. Deadpool is in a league of his own though, his own stratosphere when it comes to characters. He is so different a character. and such an underground pop culture character, that this type of

Wolverine works fine when it's PG-13. The extra gore scenes from the Wolverine didn't fit in the movie. Dredd was 3D but tanked. So what does that tell you? A huge fan base, including many teenage girls, will make profit.

Excited as hell to hear this. It really was a game changer and I was in awe watching it since the delayed production behind this film was actually all worth it in the end. This is easily one of my favorite comic book films and it really does feel like a film dedicated to us fans.

Just good old fashion fun! True to the same spirit and sense of humour of the comic.

I saw it in a 1:30 afternoon show.....

and the theater was reasonably crowded (maybe 50-70 people). Not bad for a Friday afternoon. One disturbing thing was the number of parents who brought kids. First, because all the schools here were in session so WTF? Second, because WTF??? What part of R-rated don't these idiots understand? The movie was outstanding, but the swearing, nudity (full frontal with women who shaved), the sex, the violence. . . . it was pretty hardcore R.

This is a movie they made for adults. Even most

This is a movie they made for adults. Even most of the pop-culture references were something you wouldn't understand (including the PC scene) unless you were 35 or older. Good for them for sticking to their guns. It was well worth it.

What happens to the minds of kids that see Deadpool? Nothing.

Screw the production budget, what was the marketing budget? That's what sold this film.

Yeah, but most of the marketing was viral. Instead of buying commercial time, they released entertaining clips on social media or worked with TV outlets (like Extra) to get free air time. Other than the Super Bowl spot, they probably never spent real advertising money like the big films.

I kind of hope they keep it low budget...

The production value for this movie was amazing for the low budget it had. I kind of hope the next movie isn't given a huge budget so they have to squeeze every penny again. The moment the get $100,000,000 to make a Deadpool movie, it will be horrible CGI and shoddy effects because they can throw money away on it.

Keep it real, keep it grounded and keep it looking fresh. This wasn't as colorful as a Marvel movie and it was nowhere near as dark and broody as the shitty Man of Steel universe.
