At Sunday night’s 74th Golden Globe ceremony, Deadpool will be the first live-action superhero movie in the history of the awards show to compete for top honors.
The R-rated Deadpool, from 20th Century Fox and starring Ryan Reynolds, is far and away the top-grossing title among the five movies nominated for best motion picture for a musical or comedy, as well as the five vying for best motion picture for a drama.
In keeping with tradition, many of the 10 titles are prestige films, versus big commercial players. Still, Deadpool isn’t the only best-picture nominee that can claim success when breaking down how the 10 films have fared — or are faring — at the domestic and global box office in advance of the Globes. The big exception is Sing Street, which fell flat in the U.S. in April with $3.2 million.
All grosses are through Friday and will be updated Sunday with additional weekend earnings for those titles still in theaters.
