Here's the Day 1 report of Deadpool 2:

At home, Deadpool 2 is charming cine-lovers and it has already set a new record of the highest preview collection for a 'R' rated film - Deadpool 2 collected over $18 million on Thursday and its two-day collection is expected to close at $50 million, as per Variety Magazine. The report also stated that Marvel's Deadpool 2, which is distributed by 20th Century Fox, is aiming for $130 million opening weekend in North America.

Deadpool 2, which has 84 per cent rating on Rotten Tomatoes at the time of writing this, opened to fairly decent reviews worldwide on Friday. Critics have lauded Ryan Reynolds' (also the film's co-writer and c-producer) impeccable comic timing in the film, made on a budget of $110 million. Raja Sen in his review for NDTV wrote: "Ryan Reynolds has embraced the filthy mercenary character with (a frankly alarming amount of) gusto, and made Deadpool irredeemably his own. He has solid screen presence and plays well off other, less bastardly heroes around him, but this self-referential film gives you a whole lot of one man."

Deadpool 2 is directed by David Leitch and it also stars Josh Brolin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz, TJ Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, Jack Kesy and Stefan Kapicic.
