With set marketing effort from 20th Century Fox, Deadpool the movie can be assured with positive outcome when released on February 12th.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Deadpool is generating plenty of interest among moviegoers, putting it on course for a $55 million-plus debut next month. The X-men spin-off Deadpool, with Ryan Reynolds playing the part, follows the adventures of Wade Wilson (aka Deadpool), a foul-mouthed, witty superhero. 

Deadpool rolls out Feb.12 opposite comedies Zoolander 2 and How to Be Single. Those with access to prerelease services say the scores are strong for Deadpool among both males and females for this year Valentine’s Day. As of now, it is the first choice among females and audiences are a major marketing push.  

Deadpool is one project that Ryan Reynolds is passionate which tells the story of Deadpool. The character with the the real name of Wade Wilson, was bestowed with special powers after going through an experimental treatment for cancer. However, the side effects often make him unable to be in his right mind and usually become unexpected violent. As in the comic world, Deadpool is categorized as anti-hero character.

In 2009, Deadpool made the first appear as the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. However, the vast difference of the character in the movie with the original made the hero’s fans angry and Ryan Reynolds promised that he will fix the mistake in the coming movie in early 2016. 

The production team hopes Deadpool can repeat the success of Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) on Valentine’s Day weekend. Last year, Fifty Shades of Grey debuted to a dazzling $93 million while Kingsman: The Secret Service launched to $41.8 million over the four days.

Meanwhile, Zoolander 2 marks the comeback of comedian Ben Stiller playing Derek Zoolander after 15 years. The movie with the participation of many famous super stars looks to gross of $20 million, but those estimates could easily see an uptick in the coming days when Paramount starts its marketing campaigns.
