Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Gets Retro First Poster
The first poster for Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has been released. The latest movie from the revered director of Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained arrives in July, and as the title suggests, is a sprawling LA-set drama that stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt.
The poster itself isn't exactly the most striking one released for a Tarantino movie, but it does have a suitably retro look. It shows DiCaprio as fading Western star Rick Dalton and Pitt as his stunt-double and pal Cliff Booth. They are shown posing in front of a car and the Hollywood Hills... and that's basically it. The good news is that the first trailer is set to arrive very soon, but in the meantime here's the poster:
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood hits theaters on July 26 and features probably the most ridiculously star-studded cast of the year (outside of Avengers Endgame of course). As well as DiCaprio and Pitt, it stars Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate, the actress who was murdered by the Manson family in 1969 and in Tarantino's movie lives next door to Dalton and Booth. There's also roles for Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning, James Marsden, Scoot McNairy, Damian Lewis, Emile Hirsch, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Lena Dunham, plus Luke Perry, who shot a role before his death earlier this month.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Tarantino explained the origins of the movie. "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 seven years old," he said. "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."
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is Tarantino's ninth movie as director. In 2016 he said that he would quit directing after his tenth movie, but it remains to be the seen if this is still the case. There were also rumors last year that he was working a new Star Trek movie, but with the future that entire franchise on the big screen uncertain, there has been no further news about this.
