Description by Wikipedia

Deadpool is a 2016 American superhero film directed by Tim Miller and written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. It is the eighth installment in the X-Men film series, and stars Ryan Reynolds as the title character, as well as Morena Baccarin as his love interest Vanessa, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Gina Carano, Leslie Uggams, Brianna Hildebrand and Stefan Kapičić. In the film, antihero Deadpool hunts the man who nearly destroyed his life while also trying to reunite with his lost love.

Development began in February 2004 with New Line Cinema, but put the film in turnaround in March 2005, with 20th Century Fox buying the rights. In May 2009, after Reynolds portrayed the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, to a general let down of fans, Fox lent the film to writers, and Miller was hired for his directorial debut in April 2011. Enthusiastic acclaim from leaked CGI test footage by Miller in July 2014 led to Fox greenlighting the film in September. Additional casting began in early 2015, and principal photography commenced in Vancouver from March to May.

Deadpool premiered in Paris on February 8, 2016, and was released on February 12 in the United States in IMAX, DLP, D-Box and premium large format. The film received global critical acclaim from critics, who highly praised Reynolds' performance as well as the film's style, faithful depiction of the titular character and its comics, action sequences, stunts, visual effects, comedic humor and Tom Holkenborg's score, but criticized its plot as formulaic.

The film was a commercial success, grossing over $783 million worldwide and breaking numerous box-office records, becoming the eighth highest-grossing film of 2016, the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time when unadjusted for inflation, and the highest-grossing X-Men film. Shortly after the film's success, Fox ordered development of a sequel.
