Box Office Results - 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood'
Quentin Tarantino strikes again! In a movie industry whose hits are increasingly dominated by superheros and disney live-action remakes, we are proved once again that a well-respected auteur can still open a film successfully to a wide audience. Let’s take a look at the numbers.
Once Upon A Time in Hollywood (Sony)
Box Office: $40 million
Once Upon A Time in Hollywood is Quentin Tarantino’s ninth, and supposedly, second -to-last film. The marketing and frequent name drops of the director and its three leading stars; DiCaprio, Pitt and Robbie, along with it’s smart counter-programming to all of the noisy blockbusters ensured a more than decent opening. Though the cost was on the steeper side ($90 million), the film’s $40 million opening and likely good legs should at least get it over the century mark, if not much higher. Barring a complete collapse stateside and a lackluster overseas take, this should be a solid hit for Sony. I expect Once Upon A Time in Hollywood to reach $130 million before it calls it quits.
