Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood debuted in theaters on July 26, managing to become the film with the best opening, in its weekend, by Quentin Tarantino. In this way, it would have managed to exceed the figure of 40 million dollars and the 39 million dollars of the debut of Inglourious Basterds.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood raises $40 million and becomes Quentin Tarantino's most successful...

This ninth film by Tarantino has managed to generate record numbers for him, both commercially and critically. Therefore, it would be assumed that the director would already be thinking about new film projects, although it would be the opposite because he already indicated that, if Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood were successful, he would be permanently withdrawing from the film industry.

The commercial success of this film has reflected that the audience continues to admire the director's work and that they continue to love those crazy stories that Tarantino usually brings with each of his new films. Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood would not be left behind, as it seeks to be an alternate and fanciful version of what Hollywood really is.

The plot of this film focuses on the careers of Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), who go through very strong moments in their lives due to the failure they are having in the film industry.

In the same way, we can observe the Hollywood counterpart, observing Dalton's neighbors, Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) and Roman Polanski (Rafał Zawierucha), who live in success and luxury, although they would be living a tragic story when they were condemned by the famous killer Charles Manson.

Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood premiered on July 26 in theaters in the United States. In this way, the film will be produced by Quentin Tarantino and will feature the performances of actors such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Emile Hirsch and Dakota Fanning.
