“Deadpool 2” Breaks Thursday Preview Records

The “Deadpool” sequel opened in domestic theaters last night and broke the Thursday preview record with $18.6 million, surpassing the previous $13.5 million high water mark set by “IT” in September last year.

“Deadpool 2” is expected to earn anywhere from $130-150 million in North America this weekend, surpassing the original’s $132.4 million opening haul, and up to $350 million worldwide this weekend.

The first movie went on to ultimately gross $363 million domestically and $783 million worldwide in total. Review scores on critics aggregate sites are all slightly better than the first.
