WOW!!! See How Much The New Wolverine Movie "Logan" Made At Box Office

James Mangold’s Logan has clawed its way to the top of the box office this weekend, drawing in an estimated $85.3 million, domestically. Though that doesn’t put it ahead of Deadpool, it’s still incredibly impressive for an R-rated comic book movie, especially one that strays so far from what we usually see in the genre.
The film soared from the moment it debuted on Thursday night, packing theaters throughout the weekend. While international numbers haven’t rolled in just yet, analysts are pointing to around $75-$100 million overseas, which could potentially put Logan close to $200 million by the time Monday morning arrives. That’d be a huge number for the threequel and one that ought to make Fox executives very happy, especially as they’ve now had two R-rated superhero hits.

Furthermore, it also proves that comic book movies, and even big blockbusters in general, don’t always have to be PG-13 to be profitable. An R-rating can be applied and still bring in money for the studio, even with a significant portion of the audience cut off. Hopefully, this will spark a new trend in Hollywood and fans will start to see more mature superhero movies coming down the pipeline. That’s not to say there’s anything wrong with the PG-13 fare that Marvel and DC put out, but there’s no doubt that some viewers are growing tired of it.
