Is 'Django Unchained' Headed for Half A Billion At The B.O.?

nullIt 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.
