Deadpool is officially the highest-grossing R-rated movie ever.

Tim Miller-directed superhero film “Deadpool” has earned more than $745 million worldwide, surpassing 2003 film “The Matrix Reloaded” (over $745 million) to become the highest-grossing R-rated movie in the box office history, putting it ahead of 2003's The Matrix Reloaded, which earned $742 million worldwide during its run.

The film narrates the story of Wade Wilson, played by Ryan Reynolds, who hunts the man who gave him an accelerated healing factor and also a scarred physical appearance. In North America, the movie’s total box office collection stood at $349.4 million, and is expected to surpass “American Sniper” ($350.1 million) to take second place on the domestic list of highest-grossing R-rated movies, according to ew.com.
