The latest movie Deadpool broke the new box office record. An anterior Special Forces effective turned mercenary is subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with enhanced healing powers, adopting the alter ego Deadpool. Just when you thought it was safe to stick your head into the market of international box office figures, safe in the knowledge that Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens had driven pretty much every record (bar the big, global-total-shaped one) clean away, a smart-mouthed mercenary in a tight-fitting red suit comes along, and nerves things up for the second time in a year.
Yup, that’s right: Fox and Marvel’s Deadpool is breaking box office records left, right, and center, and not taking a whole lot of time to do it. The latest record to fall?
