'Deadpool' Totals Massive $254.1M in Two Weeks After Leading Thursday with $3.85M

on February 26, 2016 by Daniel Garris

Fox's Deadpool grossed $3.85M on Thursday to lead the daily box office for a fourteenth consecutive day. The Ryan Reynolds led blockbuster was up 2 percent over Wednesday and down a sizable 52 percent from last Thursday. Deadpool was easily the week's top film with a weekly take of $73.74 million.

Deadpool is running an extremely impressive 46 percent ahead of the $174.40 million two-week take of 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past (which had the added advantage of higher priced 3D admissions; something that Deadpool doesn't have).

Risen held steady in second place with $0.841 million. The faith-based film from Sony's AFFIRM Films label starring Joseph Fiennes was up a slim 1 percent over Wednesday's performance. Risen placed in a distant second for the week with a seven-day start of $15.70 million. That was on the higher end of pre-release expectations and places the film a strong 47 percent ahead of the $10.67 million first week take of fellow AFFIRM Films release When the Game Stands Tall back in 2014.

Warner's How to Be Single was up one spot from Wednesday to move back into third place with $0.658 million. The romantic comedy from New Line and MGM featuring Dakota Johnson increased 6 percent over Wednesday and decreased a solid 41 percent from last Thursday. How to Be Single took fifth place for the week with $10.93 million. That was down a very respectable 54 percent from the film's opening week performance and brings the film's seven-day start to $34.47 million.

The Witch was down one spot to claim fourth place with $0.642 million. A24's low-budget R-rated horror film was up 3 percent over Wednesday. The Witch performed on the high end of expectations this week (and nicely with its low price tag in mind) with a seven-day start of $11.61 million. That placed the film in fourth place for the frame and was 24 percent stronger than the $9.34 million seven-day take of 2013's You're Next.

Kung Fu Panda 3 rounded out the day's top five with $0.570 million. The 3D computer animated sequel from Fox and DreamWorks Animation was up 9 percent over Wednesday and down a sharp 54 percent from last Thursday. Kung Fu Panda 3 took third place this week with $14.85 million. That was down 51 percent from the previous week and brings the film's four-week total to $119.46 million.

Race rounded out its first week of release with a sixth place take of $0.483 million. Focus' Jesse Owens biopic starring Stephan James was down a concerning 6 percent from Wednesday. Race placed in sixth for the week with a seven-day start of $9.59 million. That was a bit below the film's modest expectations and 32 percent softer than the $14.18 million first week take of McFarland, USA last year.
