‘Deadpool’ Soars, ‘Kung Fu Panda’ Celebrates, Whilst ‘Gods of Egypt’ Continues To Bomb | Film News



2016 already has its first bomb of the year, Lionsgates Gods of Egypt opened to $14 million domestically, barely scratching the $140 million that took to make the feature. Globally it wasn’t better for the film, falling flat with overseas audiences and debuting to a round of resoundingly negative reviews.


Whilst the studio’s hopes for a new film franchise were dashed by the films failure to resonate, 20th Century Fox’s Deadpool continued to soar, doing well on its third weekend to increase its haul to $285.6 million. Third place domestically came Kung Fu Panda 3 earning $9 million, becoming China’s top-grossing animated film of all time.
