Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood gave the writer/director his largest career box office opening at $41 million, but there is a chance it could also end up giving him his biggest box office total as well.
The film has now earned $239.8 million globally surpassing previous Tarantino films such as The Hateful Eight, Kill Bill 1-2, and Pulp Fiction. It’s currently sitting at his third highest-grossing film under Inglourious Basterds.
It’ll need to make another $81.7 million to overtake’s Basterds’ $321.5 million, which seems doable given how well it’s doing overseas.
The bigger challenge will be attempting to make more than Django Unchained’s $425.4 million as it’ll have to earn another $185.6 million. Making that wouldn’t be impossible but it’ll have to keep strong overseas numbers over the next couple of weeks.
Sony Pictures is certainly going to be happy with anything above $300 million along with the film likely going to earn some Oscar love next year.
I have a strong feeling we’ll see Brad Pitt nab a Best Supporting Actor nomination.
Quentin has one more movie in him before he retires from filmmaking, but it remains to be seen what that’ll actually be. Stay tuned cause we’ll certainly cover what that project will be.
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.
