The Inglourious Basterds box office should do well. The Inglourious Basterds box office is already predicted to range from $25 to $30 million, which would make it a big hit in late August. The one question about the Inglorious Basterds box office for opening weekend is whether star Brad Pitt will find it to be a successful opening. Brad Pitt is accustomed to his films being #1 at the box office, and only making $25 million in the opening weekend doesn’t compare to some of his other box office totals. The Inglourious Basterds box office totals are still a few days away, so people are still working with projections rather than facts at this time.
The Inglourious Basterds box office is expected to fall in line with Quentin Tarantino looking to have his most successful opening weekend. The Inglourious Basterds box office could possibly be his best opening weekend for any film of his career, and in that regard, the Inglourious Basterds box office could be a huge success. The most successful opening weekend that Quentin Tarantino has had with one of his movies was Kill Bill Vol. 2 back in 2004, which opened with a gross of $25.1 million. His second best opening was Kill Bill Vol. 1 which brought in $22 million in 2003. The Inglourious Basterds box office totals could also pass his most successful film when the film finishes its run in theaters. Quentin Tarantino’s most successful film in the box office was 1994’s Pulp Fiction, which grossed almost $108 million during its run.
Inglourious Basterds box office does come in around $25 to $30 million like it is estimated, it would be a good showing for Brad Pitt as well, but nowhere near the most successful films that he has been involved with. The last major release from Brad Pitt was The Curious Case of Benjamin Button in 2008, which opening with $26.8 million and grossed a total of $127.5 million. Some of the better opening numbers for Brad Pitt include Mr. & Mrs. Smith that opened with $50.3 million in 2005, Interview with the Vampire that opened with $36.3 million in 1994, Troy at $46.9 million in 2004 and the three “Ocean’s” films that all opened at $36 million or more. Mr. & Mrs. Smith is also his top grossing film of all time, passing $186 million while in theaters.
With slow weekend sales expected for the rest of August, as happens in most box office seasons, it could slightly hurt the Inglourious Basterds box office totals, but that was probably expected by producers when they scheduled this release date. It doesn’t mean that fans won’t enjoy the film though, and millions of people are still expected to visit a theater to enjoy the latest Quentin Tarantino flick.
