Tarantino’s “Hollywood” Off To A Healthy Start

Tarantinos Hollywood Off To A Healthy Start

Quentin Tarantino’s new film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is off to a strong start, the Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt-led movie snagging $5.8 million in Thursday night previews.

‘Once’ is on track for a $30 million opening weekend, and promises a welcome bit of R-rated counter-programming to Disney’s kid-oriented blockbuster “The Lion King” which will still hold the top spot with a likely $87-100 million haul during its second weekend.

That said, the number for ‘Once’ could go higher, and might top Tarantino’s previous biggest opener, “Inglourious Basterds” with $38 million.

Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning, Kurt Russell, Lena Dunham and the late Luke Perry also star in the $90 million-budgeted film which premiered at Cannes and which currently sits at a strong 89% (7.96/10) score on Rotten Tomatoes with over 200 reviews counted.
