So much for those obvious fake rumors claiming Deadpool 2 was a disaster (lol) as the movie’s Rotten Tomatoes score is actually higher than the first film’s score!
The early reviews are even stating Deadpool 2 is a better and funnier movie than the first!
Deadpool 2 currently has an 85% Rotten Tomatoes score with 97 reviews counted; 82 are Fresh to 15 Rotten. The first Deadpool finished with a 83% Rotten Tomatoes score, with a whopping 90% of the audience stating they liked it.
It’s also being projected that Deadpool 2 will match its $150 million opening from February of 2016, which saw the movie go on to bust out over $783 million worldwide without being able to open in China.
