Deadpool Headed To $55M Opening

Ryan Reynold’s superhero movie “Deadpool” is on course for a $55 million opening next month over the Valentine’s Day-President’s Day weekend. The news comes as pre-sale tickets for the film have now become available for purchase.

The Fox and Marvel movie came on tracking services yesterday, three weeks before it opens opposite comedies “Zoolander 2” and “How to Be Single” and before the studio begins its final few weeks of serious marketing.

Interestingly pre-release services indicate scores are strong among both males and females, rather than dominated by males as many other films in this genre. At the same time, the “Zoolander” sequel is looking to gross north of $20 million, a number that could jump in coming days.
