2003: Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill: Volume 1," starring Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu, Vivica A. Fox, Daryl Hannah and David Carradine, premieres in theaters. It is the first of two films that were theatrically released several months apart, the second one titled "Kill Bill: Volume 2" and coming out in early 2004. The film earned $22 million in its opening weekend, Tarantino's highest-grossing opening weekend to that point.
