2 Comments

Quentin Tarantino's ninth movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, opens in theatres in the United States this weekend. It's expected to make $30 million USD over its opening weekend in North America, according to a box office prediction from Variety.

That would be among the highest domestic opening-weekends for any of Tarantino's movies. With $38 million over its first weekend, Inglourious Basterds is Tarantino's biggest opening ever, while Django Unchained also made in excess of $30 million ($30.1 million) for its opening weekend.

As Variety points out, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will likely appeal to the older movie-going audience; and this group doesn't always necessarily rush out for opening weekends. The movie is getting rave reviews, which suggests the film will continue to do well after Week 1. What's more, the film stars Hollywood A-listers like Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, Kurt Russell, Dakota Fanning, and Lena Dunham, among many others, so it will surely draw a crowd.

Below you can see a rundown of the box office opening-weekends and final results for all of Tarantino's movies thus far, in chronological order. All box office numbers come from Box Office Mojo, except where noted.

Quentin Tarantino Movie Box Office Numbers:

  • Reservoir Dogs (1992) -- $147,839 US opening weekend / $2.8 million worldwide total
  • Pulp Fiction (1994) -- $9,311,882 US opening weekend / $213.9 million worldwide total
  • Jackie Brown (1997) -- $9,292,248 US opening weekend / $74.7 million worldwide total (via The-Numbers)
  • Kill Bill Vol. 1 (2003) -- $22,089,322 US opening weekend / $180.9 million worldwide total
  • Kill Bill Vol. 2 (2004) -- $25,104,949 US opening weekend / $152.2 million worldwide total
  • Inglourious Basterds (2009) -- $38,054,676 US opening weekend / $321.5 million worldwide total
  • Django Unchained (2012) -- $30,122,888 US opening weekend / $425.4 million worldwide total
  • The Hateful Eight (2015) -- $20,317,321 US opening weekend / $155.8 million worldwide total

GameSpot's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood review scored it a 9/10.

"It succeeds immensely at being a fairy tale--a recounting of a time and place, an attempt to capture the essence of Hollywood's golden age, one that came to an end in 1969--but, maybe for Tarantino, never really ended at all," reviewer Michael Rougeau said.

In other news, it was recently reported that DiCaprio was paid $15 million USD--or $5 million USD below his normal per-movie fee--to star in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. However, he could end up making $45 million USD or more when all is said and done.
