This weekend, Deadpool earned $746 million to become the highest grossing R-rated film of all-time. But the top-grossing R-rated film in the U.S. is still Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ, which grossed $370.8 million domestically. Comparatively, Deadpool has earned $349.5 million in the U.S. ...so far.
Why did it make so much? I’m curious. I thought it bombed at the cinema and Jim Caviezel said his career was pretty much over after starring in the movie. He wasn’t getting many calls. He’s thankful for getting POI which made him cool again.
