Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool 2, the much-awaited superhero film, opened this Friday to an ‘excellent start.’ In a day, the film earned over Rs. 11 crores and now, trade analyst Taran Adarsh reports that on Day 2, Deadpool 2 added Rs. 10.65 crore to its total earnings. The current total of the film now stands at Rs. 21.90 crores (all versions) but on Saturday, it registered a ‘slight decline.’ “Deadpool 2 registers a slight decline on Saturday (partly due to the Adults tag), but should be back on track today (Sunday). Eyeing Rs. 33 crore+ weekend, which is very good for an Adults-rated film. Friday 11.25 crore, Saturday 10.65 crore. Total: Rs. 21.90 crore,” Mr. Adarsh tweeted.
Back at home, Deadpool 2 opened at $18.6 million, reported Variety magazine and ‘smashed the record for top preview gross for an R-rated film.’ The superhero film is aiming to close the opening weekend business between $130 million to $150 million.
In his review for MULTIMAZA, film critic Raja Sen gave Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool 23.5 stars out of 5. “Ryan Reynolds, who has co-written this film, has embraced the filthy mercenary character with (a frankly alarming amount of) gusto, and made Deadpool irredeemably his own. He has solid screen presence and plays well off other, less bastardly heroes around him, but this self-referential film gives you a whole lot of one man. Deadpool 2 gets impressively emotional at the end, even when only pretending to be serious,” he wrote.
Deadpool 2, directed by David Leitch, also stars Josh Brolin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz and TJ Miller.
