Box Office: “Deadpool” heads for Presidents Day record


A $41 million take on Friday hints that the R-rated comic book adaptation “Deadpool” is headed toward some sort of Feb. record.

Better than “Fifty Shades,” anyway.

$100 million+ by Sunday, a four day weekend take of $115, says

Ryan Reynolds has a career-making smash on his hands, at last.

Reviews were good, Reynolds rocks the role, and it has no real competish.

Save for “Kung Fu Panda 3,” still rolling in the dough with a $26-28 million weekend.

“How to Be Single” is managing a not-bad $22 million weekend, at this pace. Anna Kendrick still holds the Rebel Wilson co-star record in terms of BO.

“Zoolander 2”? At least 8 years too late to have any chance. Seriously. $16 million. The transportation costs for the scores of cameos was more than that.

And one last time, WHO exactly demanded this sequel?

Michael Moore’s “Where to Invade Next” may manage $1 million this weekend, in limited release (300+ theaters).
