New early tracking data via BoxOfficePro suggests that Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is looking at a rather large domestic opening weekend in July. They are currently projecting the film could earn between $40-60 million. This would mean that Once Upon A Time In Hollywood might end up surpassing his previous top earners Inglourious Basterds ($321.4 million) and Django Unchained ($425.3 million).
I don’t think Quentin is terribly interested in commercial success but it’s nice to see there is some genuine anticipation for the film after The Hateful Eight didn’t get audiences as excited as Django Unchained previously did.
Here’s how Tarantino’s films rank by opening weekend numbers going back to Kill Bill.
- Inglourious Basterds (2009) – $38 million
- Django Unchained (2012) – $30.1 million
- Kill Bill Vol. 2 (2004) – $25.1 million
- Kill Bill Vol. 1 (2003) – $22 million
- The Hateful Eight (2015) – $15 million
- Grindhouse/Death Proof (2007) – $11 million
Sony Pictures has set the release date for July 26th.
Quentin Tarantino’s ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth film from the writer-director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age.
