Tarantino’s string of 0 million hits

If you go by domestic box office, Tarantino’s films have grossed $650 million through 2018. Counting worldwide receipts, the number gets close to $1.5 billion. The amazing run began with the $214 million worldwide gross for Pulp Fiction.

That made Tarantino as bankable as anyone in Hollywood. While he made the low-key Jackie Brown next, that film also made many times what it cost to film. With the $335 million Kill Bill franchise (2003-04), Tarantino became a very rich man.

His two most recent hits, Inglourious Basterds ($321 million) and Django Unchained ($425 million), yet again defied all laws of budgeting and box office. Tarantino’s formula has been pure gold for him and his former studio (Miramax/Weinstein).

Considering he delivers the scripts, directs, and usually takes a part in each film, Tarantino gets himself a big chunk of every film he makes. You can see what it’s done to his personal fortune.

Early Experiences with Film

Tarantino was involved in acting and screenwriting from a young age. By age 14, he was writing various scripts and participating in plays at the local community playhouse. By age 15, he had dropped out of high school to become an usher for a movie theater. He also started taking acting classes and met many individuals he would later work with. In the ’80s, Tarantino worked in a movie store.

In 1987, he had written and directed his first film. After working as a production assistant for an exercise video, Tarantino also booked his first role as an actor in 1987. He played an Elvis impersonator.

Quentin Tarantino’s movies have not only been critical successes, they’ve also been financial successes. Pulp Fiction “grossed more than $200 million,” according to Celebrity Net Worth, while 1997’s Jackie Brown brought in $72 million despite being made “on a shoestring budget.” The filmmaker’s Kill Bill: Volume 1 and Volume 2 — the first coming out in 2003 with the second following up in 2004 — earned around $335 million, while 2009’s Inglourious Basterds raked in over $320 million, 2015’s The Hateful Eight made $155 million, and 2019’s Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood grossed almost $375 million.

Tarantino’s highest-earning film as of May 2020 is 2012’s Django Unchained, which brought in over $425 million. In total, Tarantino’s “films have generated more than $1.5 billion globally,” per Celebrity Net Worth.

Personally, Tarantino “typically receives a $20 million advance for his standard directing/producing/writing work on his own movies.” Beyond that, “[h]e also owns a generous backend percentage of his films’ profits that can translate into a total per movie haul of $30-40 million in some cases.” All of these things adds up, which is why Tarantino’s estimated to be worth $120 million.

While that’s definitely impressive, his fortune will likely continue to rise if he keeps putting out crowd-pleasing, money-making movies.

His run at the box office

The domestic box office figures through 2018 (not including international figures) bring Tarantino’s films to a total gross of $650 million. When you bring the international figures in as an import, this increases that number to nearly $1.5 billion. “Pulp Fiction” alone grossed $214 million worldwide. We can’t forget to mention that his “Kill Bill” films brought in an additional $335 million and “Inglourious Basterds” $321 million, but “Django Unchained” topped them with a $425 million box office figure. When you consider the fact that he’s the scriptwriter, director and he usually takes a small role in each film that he writes and creates, there’s a lot of revenue coming right back at him every time a release is made.

How Quentin Tarantino amassed a 0 million fortune

Tarantino gets a typical advance of $20 million per film for the work that he renders as a writer, director, and producer of his own films. In addition to this, he receives a backend percentage of the entire gross of the film which translates roughly to as much as $30 to $40 million for a single film. As long as he keeps writing hit films, his net worth is going to continue to climb, and we’re assuming that this figure is going to change with the release of his next box office hit.

How Much Have the Best Quentin Tarantino Movies Grossed?

A revenge-laden motif carries itself through Tarantino’s highest-grossing movies. From vigilante slaves to black-suited hitmen and sword-wielding brides-not-to-be, these are Quentin Tarantino’s best movies worldwide.

1. ‘Django Unchained’: $425.4 Million

‘Django Unchained’ won both Christoph Waltz and Tarantino Oscars in 2013, and the film grossed over $425 million in theaters across the globe, more than four times its budget. The 2012 hit was Tarantino’s first winning attempt in the Western genre and featured Waltz as the bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz.

Jamie Foxx starred in the film as Django, a slave who works as a bounty hunter in exchange for his freedom.

2. ‘Inglourious Basterds’: $321.5 Million

What would have happened if a group of Jewish freedom fighters actually killed Hitler? That’s partially the premise of the Oscar winner “Inglourious Basterds,” starring Brad Pitt, Waltz, Eli Roth and others. The $70 million production turned a huge profit in box offices worldwide, making $321.5 million.

3. ‘Pulp Fiction’: $213.9 Million

Just what was in that briefcase? We may never know what that particular McGuffin was, but the innovative, nonlinear narrative of two philosophical hitmen, an over-the-hill boxer, a mobster and his wife, and other criminal hijinks in 1994 Los Angeles set a cultural benchmark in “Pulp Fiction,” Tarantino’s first bona fide hit.

The 1990s film was made on a shoestring budget of $8 million but grossed more than $213.9 million worldwide. It also began the trend of the Tarantino vehicle making new stars like Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman, and reinvigorating tired careers, like John Travolta’s.

4. ‘Kill Bill, Vol. 1’: $180.9 Million

An assassination squad attempts to kill a bride — but they fail. After emerging from a four-year coma, The Bride is out for vengeance with a samurai sword. Uma Thurman starred in the Tarantino film “Kill Bill: Vol 1,” which had a production budget of $30 million and grossed $180.9 million in theaters worldwide.

In “Kill Bill, Vol. 2,” Uma Thurman returns to finish off her former boss and lover Bill. Though the film did not fare as well as its predecessor, “Kill Bill, Vol. 2” still raked in over $152 million worldwide.

5. ‘The Hateful Eight’: $153.6 Million

Although Tarantino has announced “Kill Bill, Vol. 3,” his most recent work is “The Hateful Eight,” which was released in December 2015. The film made an impressive $153.6 million on a $44 million budget. Starring Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell and Jennifer Jason Leigh, the film follows a bounty hunter and his prisoner as they seek shelter from a deadly Wyoming winter. Watch “The Hateful Eight” trailer below.

Good Sayings from Quentin Tarantino

“If you have the passion to do it, and you do it and it doesn’t work out — I worked for 3 years on a 16mm movie that became nothing but guitar picks. And I was very disappointed when I realized it wasn’t any good. But it was my film school — and I actually got away really cheap. When it was all over I knew how to make a movie.” – Quentin Tarantino

“Emotion will always win over coolness and cleverness. It’s when a scene works emotionally and it’s cool and clever, then it’s great. That’s what you want.” – Quentin Tarantino

“If there is something magic about the collaborations I have with actors it’s because I put the character first.” – Quentin Tarantino

“One of the things about writing a novel is you can do it any way you want. It’s your voice that’s important and I see absolutely no reason why a screenplay can’t be the same. It makes it a hell of a lot easier when you’re the writer and the director.” – Quentin Tarantino
