Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is certainly making a lot of money for Sony Pictures and according to ExhibitorRelations, the film has made $310 million globally, as the film looks to surpass Inglourious Basterds in the coming weeks after it’s international rollout.
QT's ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD crashed the $300M Club globally this weekend, earning another $13M overseas for a worldwide total of $310M.

While it remains to be seen if Hollywood can make more than Dangjo Unchained’s impressive worldwide earnings of $425.4 million, it’s now all but certain that it will overtake Basterd’s global cume of $321.5 million by next weekend.
An impressive feat considering the film’s rocky early promotion, subject matter, and controversy.
Sony Pictures is likely extremely happy with the outcome as the film looks to target about $380-400 million before it runs out of steam. I wouldn’t be terribly shocked if the studio offers Quentin Tarantino a blank check and no questions for his next/final feature film, as to coax him away from things like Star Trek.
There are also plenty of assumptions that a heap of Oscar nominations will be coming next year as well.
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.
