One review starts, "Hates on Hippies and Wokesters....."

OK QT, I was a fool to doubt you.

Made $40 mil domestic over the weekend, no doubt helped by a great ad campaign!



On a serious note, as me and the Pig discussed on the last show, QT is a now a niche film maker.  ONCE UPON A TIME had a reported $90 million budget, which means it's looking to be one of the biggest flops of the year unless by some magic China completely falls in love with the Charles Manson story.

Yeah. It needs to make at least $400 million to break even.

Which is insane.  Compare that to what is still perhaps his best movie, RESERVOIR DOGS, which had a budget of $1.5 million (about $3.5 mil in adjusted dollars), and you can see why no one's running to QT with money to make another movie.

It's indeed insane. As he and maybe Kevin Smith are considered the original 'indie' directors, the fact that his budgets are so huge now is mind blowing. I wonder if it's the price of the cast? Or maybe having to re-create the late 60's in such detail? Is this one filmed in 70mm like 'Hateful 8?'

I'm guessing yes all to the above (plus his own fee). 

Def shot in anamorphic 35mm (there are apparently lots of zoom shots in the movie and as far as I know, there are no 70mm zoom lenses in existence).
