"Disney's global domination is a reflection of what happens when you have some of the biggest brands in film", Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscor, told CNN Business. "Tarantino created a knockout of a movie that is at once edgy and accessible, violent and amusing and at its core is a buddy movie that audiences clearly found irresistible".

The ninth of the 10 movies Tarantino has said he will make before retiring, "Once Upon a Time" is set in Tinseltown in 1969 and features an ensemble cast typical of the director's work, with Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Dakota Fanning and Al Pacino among the stars. It was well-received with a B CinemaScore and an 85% "fresh" rating on review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes. Although there were two live-action remakes based on 101 Dalmatians in 1996 and 2000, the current era of nostalgia-fueled remakes began with Alice in Wonderland in 2010, which was quickly followed by 10 more movies since then, including Maleficent, Cinderella, The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, Alice Through the Looking Glass, Dumbo, Aladdin, and most recently, The Lion King. The movie also scored an opening day record for Tarantino, amassing $16.8 million on Friday.

Lion King earned another $75.5 million over the weekend bringing its total cume to $612 million in the U.S. However, the audience attendance dropped 60 percent over last weekend.
