This Valentine’s Day weekend, we swooned for a pottymouthed superhero, reports USA Today, resolutely putting Deadpool during a tip of a box bureau with a beast $135 million opening weekend. That smashed Fifty Shades of Grey’s $85.2 million, and a annals for biggest Feb weekend and biggest President’s Day weekend, and also dethroned The Matrix Reloaded‘s record for biggest R-rated opening weekend. Deadpool’s take is generally monumental given that R rating, and moreso in a face of expectations pegged some-more in a $90 million neighborhood.
