The wait is almost over for Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood‘.
The star-studded movie is set to hit a theater near you on July 26, 2019. As most of you know by now, the movie stars Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, Dakota Fanning, Al Pacino, Kurt Russell, and many more.
Tarantino and the cast received rave reviews during the film’s premiere at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. It currently has a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
So with the critics praising it and a cast that features some of the biggest movie stars in the business, how much will this movie make during its opening weekend?
Early tracking suggests around $30 million, which might be a little bit of a disappointment, considering it was made on a $90 million budget (not including marketing costs).
There are some reports claiming it could make up to $50 million, which would be more of a victory. That being said, Tarantino films don’t typically have HUGE opening weekends at the box office.
Tarantino’s films don’t always produce huge opening weekend numbers (his biggest launch to date is ‘Django Unchained’ with $38 million), but they tend to have a long life in theaters as word of mouth picks up. The Oscar-winning ‘Django Unchained’ currently stands as the director’s biggest box office success to date, earning $162 million in North America and $262 million overseas.
We also have to remember most of his films have been released in November/December. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is opening in the heart of the summer, so we’ll see if it can compete with the summer blockbusters.[mashshare]
