Ryan Reynolds is on the top of the world with Deadpool.

Deadpool earned $135 million at the domestic box office over the weekend based on estimates of Rentrak. This is a record breaking opening for an R-rated movie and more. Deadpool is the biggest opening for a President's Day weekend, raking almost double of Fifty Shades of Grey, which held the record so far.

20th Centory Fox and Ryan Reynolds hit the jackpot with Deadpool. Fox only invested $58 million into making Deadpool. They already got that back and another $70 million on the opening weekend. For Ryan Reynolds, the Deadpool success means being back in the top ranks of Hollywood.

Deadpool is an R-rated movie and this is what makes it work.The story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life, he does it with a foul mouth.

Ryan Reynolds was everywhere in leading up to the Deadpool release. His short videos have been hilarious and turned out to be great marketing. Deadpool 2 is already in the making.
