Despite facing stiff competition from the likes of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Incredibles 2 and Ocean’s 8, 20th Century Fox’s superhero sequel Deadpool 2 has managed to hit another box office milestone this weekend as it passes the $700 million mark worldwide.
Deadpool 2 has now grossed $304.2 million domestically, and a further $403 million worldwide, to give the film a global haul of $717.2 million. It is currently the fourth-highest grossing release of 2018, having just been overtaken this weekend by Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
The David Leitch-directed sequel sits as the third-highest grossing installment in Fox’s X-Men franchise behind X-Men: Days of Future Past ($747.9 million) and the original Deadpool ($783.1 million).
Marvel’s motormouth mercenary is back! Bigger, better and occasionally more pant-less than ever before. When a super soldier arrives on a murderous mission, Deadpool is forced to think about friendship, family and what it really means to be a hero – all while kicking 50 shades of ass. Because, sometimes, to do the right thing you need to fight dirty.
