Django

It very well could be,or come pretty damn close.

As of today, the film has groseed some $157 million domestically. But add to that the $208.6 million that it has made overseas, and the total is $365.6 million since it opened in the U.S. on Christmas Day.

And those overseas figures include over $11 million in Spain, $20 million in the U.K. $14.5 million in Russia, $36 million in Germany, $27 million in France and $14.5 million in Italy.

That makes the film the highest-grossing film ever in Quentin Tarantino's career, easily outpacing his previous biggest b.o. hit, Inglorious Basterds, which made $120.5 million domesically and $201 million overseas.

And Django has yet to open in other key overseas markets, including Asia, where the film will open in Japan on March 1st.

All this means that the film could easily hit the $500 million mark in worldwide box office.

    I have my eye on Life of Pi, at $577,576,518 worldwide on it's way to $600 million.

    That is true. But remember that there were many people who were predicting that Django was going to flop considering its subject matter and the controversy even with Tarantino's name attached to it. And Pi is also family friendly 'clean" movie suitable for all ages while Django is loaded with extreme violence which would normally limit it's b.o. potential

    Well done. By far the best movie I have seen in 2012.

    So Django gets Rave reviews from Critics. Outstanding word of mouth. 5 Oscar nods and now a huge Boxoffice. This movie has lived beyond the hype. What's next, that's right on Oscar for best screenplay for QT.

    That is the power of great Word of Mouth. So happy for this films success.

    In case S&A writers didn't know or opted not to post

    John Singleton recently spoke at the Toronto International Film Festival on 2/12/13

    at the end of the Q&A, he fielded a question about Django and Tarantino.

    there's a 12 minute clip on the video sites that shows his response

    definitely a unique take

    ===============================================

    Looking at the box office numbers though....I note that the best numbers are coming out of Deutschland. Guess they are happy to see German character not being the stock villain in American films, for a change.
