HUGH Jackman is the butt of several jokes in Marvel's new hit movie Deadpool thanks to a crossover with the X-Men franchise.

Star Ryan Reynolds, who also takes the mickey out of himself throughout the R-rated film, crashed a day of press for Jackman's upcoming film Eddie the Eagle to interview Jackman who was a good sport about it.

Deadpool, which opened on Thursday last week, delivered 20th Century Fox's biggest opening weekend to date in Australia, raking in $10 million dollars and overshadowing Ben Stiller's Zoolander sequel.

Worldwide, the film grossed $150 million on its opening weekend. It's the biggest opening weekend ever for an R-rated movie and also surpassed the opening weekends of all previous X-Men films.
