Filmgoers Want More R-Rated Superhero Films

With the R-rated “Logan” now open around much of the world, a new survey for Fandango has confirmed that more moviegoers would like to see more R-rated superhero films following in the wake of this and last year’s “Deadpool”.

In the poll, 71% tells the film ticketing site that more superhero movies should be rated R, and 86% are interested in seeing a more violent, adult X-Men movie this weekend.

“Deadpool” pulled in $783 million globally, opening the door for “Logan” to try an R-rating. It looks like it will pay off with “Logan” pulling in $33.1 million on Friday and headed toward an $81 million domestic opening and a further $100 million overseas.
