Fox's Deadpool grossed $11.56 million on Tuesday to dominate the daily box office for a fifth consecutive day. The blockbuster Ryan Reynolds led antihero film declined 41 percent from Monday's inflated Presidents Day performance. Deadpool has grossed a massive $163.75 million in its first five days of release. The film has demolished pre-release expectations and has set a new benchmark for the X-Men Universe in the process. Deadpool is running 26 percent ahead of the $130.15 million five-day start of 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand and 38 percent ahead of the $118.78 million five-day take of 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past. The comparison to Days of Future Past is especially impressive given that Deadpool doesn't have the added advantage of higher priced 3D admissions and opened in 438 fewer locations. Deadpool will obviously have no problem remaining in first place at the box office this coming weekend.

Fellow Fox release Kung Fu Panda 3 held steady in a distant second with $1.95 million. The 3D computer animated sequel from DreamWorks Animation fell 68 percent from Monday's holiday performance and was up a strong 33 percent over last Tuesday. Kung Fu Panda 3 has stabilized nicely this week and has now grossed $102.13 million through 19 days. That places the film 16 percent behind the $122.10 million 19-day gross of last year's Hotel Transylvania 2. Kung Fu Panda 3 is likely to hold up well throughout the rest of February, thanks in part to no new family films entering the marketplace until the arrival of Disney's Zootopia on March 4.

Warner's How to Be Single was up one spot from Monday to move back into third place with $1.44 million. The romantic comedy from New Line and MGM featuring Dakota Johnson declined 29 percent from Monday, which represented the day's strongest daily percentage hold among wide releases. How to Be Single has grossed $21.35 million in five days. The film is running in line with pre-release expectations and 13 percent stronger than the $18.86 million five-day start of 2009's Confessions of a Shopaholic.

Zoolander 2 was down one spot from Monday to return to fourth on Tuesday with $0.988 million. Paramount's PG-13 rated comedy sequel starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson was down 52 percent from Monday. Zoolander 2 is performing below expectations with a lackluster $16.87 million. The five-day start for Zoolander 2 is a disappointing 2.5 percent softer than the $17.30 million five-day take of 2001's Zoolander and that's without taking into account 15 years of ticket price inflation.

Disney's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Fox's The Revenant and Universal's Hail, Caesar! were fairly bunched together in places fifth through seventh on Tuesday. The Force Awakens fell 61 percent from Monday to gross $0.575 million, The Revenant declined 47 percent to gross $0.562 million and Hail, Caesar! was down 45 percent to claim $0.541 million. Respective total grosses stand at $916.86 million for The Force Awakens, at $160.41 million for The Revenant and at $22.68 million for Hail, Caesar!
