Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, finally has a trailer. Set during Hollywood’s golden age, it’s nothing short of spectacular – even if we still aren’t sure what it’s about.
Like most of Tarantino’s films, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood has an impressive cast that includes Al Pacino, Emile Hirsch, Bruce Dern, Damian Lewis, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, Timothy Olyphant, James Marsden, James Remar, Dakota Fanning, Scoot McNairy, Luke Perry, Lena Dunham, Clifton Collins Jr., Margaret Qualley, Rumer Willis, and Damon Herriman.
Separated into thematic chapters, the Pulp Fiction-esque movie is loosely based on the Charles Manson murders and intertwines real people into the story.
“I’ve been working on this script for five years, as well as living in Los Angeles County most of my life, including in 1969, when I was 7 years old,” he said in a statement. “I’m very excited to tell this story of an LA and a Hollywood that don’t exist anymore. And I couldn’t be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio and Pitt as Rick and Cliff.”
The movie’s release date of August 9, 2019 marks fifty years to the day that Sharon Tate was murdered along with four friends by followers of Charles Manson.
Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth film from the writer-director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood has a July 26, 2019 release date.
