Here’s a fable with a happy ending.
Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” becomes his second highest grossing movie today, edging out “Inglourious Basterds” at $120 million.
“OUTH” probably won’t top Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” which stands at $162.8 million. You can’t have everything.
To think that Tarantino started out as a video clerk and became a household name thanks to his nine movies and relentless promotion thanks to Harvey Weinstein.
Tarantino’s first movie, “Reservoir Dogs,” released by Weinstein in 1992, earned just $2 million in its theatrical run. Two years later, “Pulp Fiction” made $100 million and launched Tarantino into celebrity. Both movies have earned millions since then on video and DVD.
Tarantino’s next release will be a baby in six months with his beautiful Israeli born wife, Daniella Pick. Yes, they were married under a chuppah. Mazel tov!
PS “OUTH” will be up for several Oscars, I’m just sayin… including Best Actor, Supporting Actor, Picture, Director, and Original Screenplay.
