Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is #3 in Week Two.

It’s another slow week in theaters, but that should change with the addition of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark next week. This week, though, was lead by Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. While it’s not a horror movie by any means, it does contain a spin on the Charles Manson Murders and tragic actress Sharon Tate. Quentin Tarantino’s new flick came in at #3 with almost $30,000,000 in ticket sales. It was produced on a budget of $120,000,000 and I don’t think it’ll have a problem crossing that mark in the next few weeks considering it’s already at $88,000,000.

Elsewhere on the chart, Crawl stays in the top ten for another week, coming in at #9 with $3,000,000 in ticket sales. It’s officially made back all its money (production + promotion) and anything else grossed after this point is going straight to the bank. Midsommar continues to under-perform, but it did cross the $25,000,000 mark. Finally, Killer Unicorn is back on the chart thanks to an extra screening, which bumped its total up to $34,000. For a limited release, that’s not too bad!

Also, I received first week Blu-ray/DVD sales for the Pet Sematary remake, which came in with $2,691,000.

This Week at the Box Office:
3 2 Once Upon a Time in Hollywood $29,913,000 (Total: $88,731,000)
