Writer/director Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” earned $20 million over the weekend to place third. The superhero adventure “Spider-Man: Far From Home” collected $7.9 million to push its five-week total to $360.5 million.
“Toy Story 4” earned another $7.3 million, giving it a seven-week total of $410.2 million domestically.
