Deadpool Box Office Second Weekend

(Marvel)

Deadpool continued to do serious damage at the box office in the wake of last week’s record-breaking opening. As Gossip Cop reported, the Marvel movie starring Ryan Reynolds scored the highest-grossing February debut of all time. And though it dropped a bit in its second week, it still easily took the number one spot at the box office this weekend. The comic book adaptation earned $55 million.

Coming in a very distant second place was Kung Fu Panda 3, which earned just $12.5 million. Risen, one of the weekend’s newcomers, nabbed third place with $11.8 million. Another newbie, The Witch, secured the fourth position with $8.7 million in ticket sales, while the Dakota Johnson and Rebel Wilson’s comedy How To Be Single took the fifth spot with $8.2 million.

Rounding out the Top 10 were the new Jesse Owens biopic Race, which finished in sixth place with $7.3 million, while Zoolander 2 came in seventh place with $5.5 million. Star Wars: The Force Awakens added $3.8 million more to its record-breaking box office. The film was in eighth place, followed by Oscar contender The Revenant in ninth with $3.8 million in ticket sales. Just making the Top 10 was the star-studded movie Hail, Caesar!, which earned $2.6 million.
