Quentin Tarantino smiling because he is killing the competition this week with “Kill Bill Vol. 2” at the box office and “Kill Bill Vol. 1” at DVD retailers. The second film in what may ultimately become a trilogy, Vol. 2, is the leader for this weekend’s North American box office.  According to estimates, the film took in $25.6 million this past weekend, outselling “The Punisher” which reportedly took in $14 million for the opening weekend. 

Tarantino is also killing the DVD competition with ‘Kill Bill Vol 1’, which reportedly sold more than two million DVDs the very first day in stores, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The first film opened with $22.1 million in ticket sales its first weekend and eventually grossed just under $70 million at the US box office. The industry is buzzing that Vol 2 is likely to top that and go over $100 million. We shall soon see if that is the case. 

Although, Vol 2 concludes the story line from Vol 1, Tarantino is already mapping out a third volume that will take the violent saga on a different story arch. Tarantino spoke with Entertainment Weekly about his plans of the Vol. 3, instead of Thurman staring in the film Quentin will turn the key role over to Ambrosia Kelley for the character of Nikki, daughter of Vernita Green (Vivica A. Fox). “I've already got the whole mythology: Sofie Fatale (Julie Dreyfus) will get all of Bill's money. She'll raise Nikki, who'll take on The Bride," Tarantino told the magazine.  (see story).
