Deadpool 2 sequel to the 2016 blockbuster Deadpool is currently making the waves in the cinema. It’s release on May 18 sees Deadpool reassert itself as king of R-rated Moves grossing $ 355 million worldwide so far.
Knocking Inifirnty Wars off its perch is no mean feat but DeadPool 2 has managed that with a bit of pomp in its first weekend with it debuting at $125 million. This sum is less than the $134 million Deadpool made during it’s opening weeked, but still that’s an impressive sum. Critics have had their say about Deapool 2 and so far reviews have been positive. Certified fresh at 82% on Rottentomatoes and 66% on Metacritic, it is testament to a well developed screenplay.
Sequels have always tended to disappoint but not Deadpool 2. A captivating story-line and well developed characters has given us a well wrought epic movie and I cant wait for the sequel of this sequel. The introduction of the popular X Force gives us something to look forward to in their debut movie coming soon, which given Deadpool 2’s success should get us excited as well.
Ryan Reynolds performance once again as the Merc with a Mouth was superb and the end credits scene really was top notch as it served as a catharsis for him and for us as well when we look back to some terribly made “movies”.
Josh Brolin is definitely enjoying a resurgence with two movies where he plays major roles occupying the top of box office. As Thanos and now as Cable, you wont find a more suitable and befitting portrayal of these characters.
With Solo: A Star Wars Story set for release in today, we wonder if Deadpool could still top the box office one more time before being toppled.
