Box Office: ‘Once Upon A Time’ Could Become Highest-Grossing Movie About Hollywood

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood continued its strong run this past weekend, pulling in another $11.7 million to increase its domestic total to $100.4 million. And if it’s able to best Quentin Tarantino’s current top-grossing film, Django Unchained, it’ll top a list filled with some historic films.

A film about Hollywood and the L.A. scene during the 1960s, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is part of a storied list of films set in Hollywood.

  6. The Aviator ($102.6 million)
  7. This is the End ($101.5 million)
  8. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood ($100.4 million)
  9. America’s Sweethearts ($93.6 million)
  10. Scream 3 ($89.1 million)
