Box Office: “Once Upon a Time” hits $40, “Lion King” adds $75

The best opening for a Tarantino movie ever. One of the steeper fall offs for a Disney blockbuster remake.

That’s the take away, here. “Once” opened wider than Tarantino’s other pictures under Weinstein distribution. It was on track to clear $41, but $40 is still his personal best.

“The Lion King” went from a $192 opening to a $75 second weekend.

That’s a 61% dive, week to week. Not good by Disney standards, even if the opening was staggeringly large.

Oh, and “The Farewell” cracked the top ten on just 135 screens.
