Bonus content on the Bu-ray, DVD and digital formats will include the featurette “Inside the True Story,” where viewers meet the real people who inspired the film.
 
Blu-ray and Digital exclusive content includes nine deleted scenes and the featurette “Crafting Concussion,” where cast and filmmakers share a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film. Digital extras are available only with iTunes Extras and Vudu Extras.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment describes Ultra HD this way:  It features “four times the resolution of high definition, high dynamic range (HDR) — which produces brilliant highlights, vibrant colors and greater contrast on compatible displays — and Dolby Atmos audio, remixed specifically for the home theater environment, delivering captivating sound that places and moves audio anywhere in the room, including overhead.”

How much money did Deadpool make? That much? Plus Writers Guild Award winners

Written by Barbara Vancheri on .

deadpool-DMC 2670 v068 matte.1045 rgb

 
Yes, it was anecdotal evidence — but it proved to be on target. 
 
I went to see “Deadpool” at 11 a.m. Saturday at AMC-Loews at the Waterfront (I had missed the evening preview which Tony Norman ably covered for us). I bought a seat in the VIP section but was stunned when virtually all of the other VIP seats filled up with people who had legitimately paid the extra couple of dollars.
 
One woman still periodically checked her email on her smart phone but that’s a blog for another day. Nevertheless, the VIP seats almost never fill up this way. 
 
So when the predictions of a huge opening for the Ryan Reynolds movie kept creeping up through the weekend, I believed it. “Deadpool” opened with $135 million.
 
Here are the estimates from comScore: 
 
1. “Deadpool” — $135,000,000.
2. “Kung Fu Panda 3” — $19,650,000, bringing its North American gross to $93,912,387.
3. “How to Be Single” — $18,750,000.
4. “Zoolander 2” — $15,650,000.
5. “The Revenant” — $6,900,000, for $159,164,599 so far. 
6. “Hail, Caesar!” — $6,586,640, for $21,351,610.
7. “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” — $6,194,000, for $914,838,964 to date. 
8. “The Choice” — $5,250,000, for $13,259,551. 
9. “Ride Along 2” — $4,131,490, for $82,662,725.
10. “The Boy” — $2,913,000, for $30,778,587.
 
“A remarkable, record-breaking President’s weekend with an estimated $241 million for all films in the marketplace for the F-S-S portion of the weekend (this beats 2015’s $214 million three-day portion) and an expected $275 million for the Friday through Monday holiday frame (beating last year’s $247 million for the four-days),” says Paul Dergarabedian, comScore senior media analyst. 
 
“Fox’s R-rated Marvel Superhero film ‘Deadpool’ shatters expectations as enthusiastic audiences propel the film to the biggest-ever February and R-rated debut with $135 million for the Friday, Saturday and Sunday portion of the President’s weekend,” he says. Once you add in Monday, which is a day off for many people, the total could be $150 million.
