Fox’s “Deadpool 2” has topped $500 million at the worldwide box office in less than two weeks.
“Deadpool 2” has taken in $218.5 million domestically and another $287 million in international markets, led by $28 million in the U.K. and $27 million in South Korea.
The original “Deadpool” stunned the industry two years ago with a $132.4 million debut weekend, which holds the record for an R-rated title, and went on to finish with $330 million domestically and $420 million internationally. Fox decided in January to open the Ryan Reynolds sequel two weeks earlier to get it into theaters a week ahead of “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”
Blockchain entertainment studio SingularDTV has acquired worldwide rights to the sci-fi thriller “Perfect,” starring Garrett Wareing, Courtney Eaton, and Abbie Cornish.
