July 28 (UPI) -- Writer-director Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood had the biggest opening of all his films, box office figures indicate.
It was No. 2 on the box office chart behind the remake of The Lion King.
CNN said Tarantino's 2009 World War II epic Inglourious Basterds, which opened with $38 million, previously had been the Oscar-winner's top performer on an opening weekend. His other films include darkly comic and violent Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and The Hateful Eight.
