F--k yeah. The world loves"Deadpool," pushing it to No. 1 on the list of highest-grossing R-rated movies of all time. According to Entertainment Weekly, the film has taken in more than $745 million worldwide, which means it has dethroned "The Matrix Reloaded" ($742.1 million) for the title.

Interestingly enough, "Deadpool" is the top overall, but still not No. 1 for R-rated movies in North America. So far, EW reported, "Deadpool" has a total of $349.4 million, and they expect it will take the place of "American Sniper" ($350.1 million) at No. 2. However, it doesn't look like The Merc with a Mouth will be defeating "The Passion of the Christ," which is in the top domestic position with $370.8 million.

But taking No. 1 overall, as the top money-making R-rated movie around the world, is further confirmation that a non PG or PG-13 superhero film can find a market. A big one. Plus, unlike poor "Batman v Superman," "Deadpool" had the support of both critics and audiences. A "Deadpool" sequel is already in the works, so we'll have to see how well it does in a world that now demands a lot from its foul-mouthed, irreverent ass-kickers.
