Ryan Reynolds: ‘Deadpool 2’ is about kindness (truly)

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The irreverent and very R-rated comic book character Deadpool snarks his way back to theaters this weekend and the sequel is looking like it will be another hit for 20th Century Fox. Industry analysts say the film is tracking to earn at least $130 million in its first weekend in North American theaters.

“Deadpool” broke box office records and shattered expectations about R-rated superhero films when it opened in February 2016.

Ryan Reynolds reprises his role as the title character in the sequel, which also stars Josh Brolin and “Atlanta’s” Zazie Beetz. Early reviews have been positive and it’s currently boasting an 86 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

“Deadpool 2” hits theaters Friday.
