Quentin Tarantino`s latest 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' has not just impressed critics but has gained huge appreciation at the box office worldwide. The film has managed to rake in $180.2 million globally so far.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt, will likely end up being the second-biggest movie of Tarantino`s career after 'Django Unchained`. 

Trade pundits state that there's also a chance it could overtake `Django.`

"The movie is arguably the most accessible and entertaining of all of Tarantino`s films and given its collective star power, great marketing campaign and generally great reviews, it should be no surprise that the film has become a global breakout hit," says Paul Dergarabedian of Comscore."And `Once Upon a Time in Hollywood` certainly has the potential to become the highest-grossing Tarantino movie ever," he added.

'Django Unchained,' starring DiCaprio and Jamie Foxx, released over Christmas holidays in 2012, grossed $162.8 million domestically and $262.6 million overseas for a career-best global haul of $425.4 million.

Tarantino`s film continues to hold well in Russia, where it opened to a career-best $7.7 million last weekend. 

Total ticket sales there have grown to $13.3 million, while Hong Kong and Taiwan have turned in $1.2 million and $1.1 million, respectively. 

Set in 1969, 'Once Upon A Time in Hollywood' has DiCaprio playing a has-been actor Rick Dalton with Brad Pitt playing his stunt double Cliff Booth, Margot Robbie plays Sharon Tate and the film's story has the infamous Manson family murders as its backdrop.
