This year, Quentin Tarantino is taking us back to 1969 and the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which is set against the backdrop of the notorious Manson Family murders. The film is set to release in theaters on July 26th from Sony Pictures, and today brings the full trailer.
This trailer makes the film's plot much clearer, with Leonardo DiCaprio playing aging actor Rick Dalton, Brad Pitt as his stuntman, Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate, and cult leader Charles Manson and his deadly Manson Family lurking nearby...
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 also stars Al Pacino, Kurt Russell, Dakota Fanning, James Mardsen, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Timothy Olyphant, Damian Lewis, Lena Dunham, Emile Hirsch, Luke Perry, Scoot McNairy and James Remar.
"Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore."
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood makes its debut at the Cannes Film Festival today, 25 years after Pulp Fiction won the Palme d’Or and put Tarantino on the map.
Ahead of the film’s premiere, Tarantino urged attendees not to reveal any major details that would spoil the movie:
“I love Cinema. You love Cinema,” Tarantino wrote in a message posted to the movie’s official Twitter account. “It’s the journey of discovering a story for the first time. I only ask that everyone avoids revealing anything that would prevent later audiences from experiencing the film in the same way. Thank you,”
