The first trailer for ‘the 9th film from Quentin Tarantino’, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, was released online on Wednesday by actor Leonardo DiCaprio. This is DiCaprio’s first film since his long-awaited Oscar win for The Revenant in 2015, and his second collaboration with Tarantino, who last directed him in Django Unchained.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood also stars Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and dozens of popular actors in supporting roles, as Tarantino returns to his Pulp Fiction origins with a sprawling story set in 1960s Hollywood.
DiCaprio and Pitt play a faded TV actor and his stunt double, respectively, as they struggle to keep up with a changing landscape. The short, one-and-a-half minute trailer also introduces Margot Robbie’s Sharon Tate, and a fictional Bruce Lee. Tarantino has described the film as, “a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood. The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor…Sharon Tate.”
The film will touch upon the infamous Manson murders, in which members of Charles Manson’s cult killed several people, including Tate, a popular actor who was also pregnant at the time. Glimpses of Manson and his infamous ranch are also seen, alongside glitzy shots of Hollywood, which Tarantino reportedly shot by painstakingly dressing real Los Angeles streets.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood also stars Al Pacino, Emile Hirsch, Bruce Dern, Damian Lewis (as Steve McQueen), Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, Timothy Olyphant, James Marsden, James Remar, Dakota Fanning, Scoot McNairy, the late Luke Perry, Lena Dunham, Clifton Collins Jr, Mike Moh (as Bruce Lee), Margaret Qualley, Rumer Willis, and Damon Herriman (as Charles Mason). Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is set for a July release.
