"Deadpool 2" Expected To Pull In $350 Million Worldwide This Opening Weekend

That was the weird dynamic on display in 2016's surprise hit Deadpool, and just as prominent in the new follow-up, Deadpool 2. He also exhibits terrific chemistry with Brolin, who's great as Cable. Sound familiar? At another point in the film, Deadpool calls Russell "John Connor", the hero from the similarly themed "Terminator" movies.

Deadpool 2, which opens in Singapore on Thursday (May 17), offers more wisecracking action from the Marvel superhero character. Throw in a hilarious Rob Delaney appearance as moustachioed odd-man-out Peter, plus a few fantastic cameos, and the result is that numerous film's best moments come from the supporting cast instead of the star. That gives Deadpool 2 a chance to pass the $132.4 million opening of the 2016 original to claim the record for highest-grossing USA debut for an R-rated film.

"That's a different Fox", Colbert told Deadpool. Assuming that more films follow in the series, this sets the bar high. The Avengers film now has an 84% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and Deadpool 2 slightly tops it with an 86% fresh rating.


It's an approach well-suited to the title character, a reluctant immortal (Ryan Reynolds returns) whose body repairs itself after a "fatal" injury, a scenario that Leitch uses as an opportunity to convert cartoonish violence into inventive slapstick. Because the world needs more of this, even if it's not an entirely flawless movie. Take Paramount's "Book Club", which stars Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, and Mary Steenburgen as a group of lifelong friends who decide to jumpstart their sluggish love lives after reading "Fifty Shades of Grey". The film's marketing has been endlessly entertaining, reviews are strong, and box office projections are good, but that doesn't mean the promotional machine is slowing down just yet.

Reynolds is once again at his arch and nihilist best here, while acting and jumping in so much facial prosthetics that it makes him look like he's inside melted cheese, or, as the first movie put it, an avocado that had relations with an older avocado. I was in the middle of Avengers and I was exhausted, and they said, 'Do you want to do this thing?' And then my wife (Kathryn Boyd) said, 'Why don't you just read it?' And I read it. Paramount bought the rights at the American Film Market in November, while the film was in post-production.
