Quentin Tarantino and Columbia Pictures released their first trailer for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie.
Check it out.
Not only did they release the trailer, but we got two new posters for the film.
Here’s the official description for the film:
“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.”
Not only does Once Upon a Time in Hollywood feature DiCaprio, Robbie, and Pitt, but it will also include Luke Perry, Timothy Olyphant, Dakota Fanning, Al Pacino, Tim Roth, Emile Hirsch, Kurt Russell, James Marsden, Samantha Robinson, Margaret Qualley, and more.
DiCaprio plays Rick Dalton an actor who starred on the television series Bounty Law between 1958 and 1963. He’s tried to transition to movies, but has struggled. He still gets gigs, but it’s usually as a guest role on other people’s shows. He happens to be the neighbor of Sharon Tate played by Margot Robbie.
Pitt plays Cliff Booth, Dalton’s long-time stunt double and best friend.
Robbie takes on Sharon Tate, who happens to be the pregnant wife of Roman Polanski at the time. She is murdered by the followers of Charles Manson in her home. Al Pacino plays Marvin Shwarz, Dalton’s agent. Dakota Fanning is Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, a member of the infamous Manson family, who was not directly involved in the murder of Sharon Tate.
Damian Lewis plays Steve McQueen. Bruce Dem plays George Spahn, who is an 80-year-old rancher who rents it out to Hollywood film studios to use as a location to film Westerns. Charles Manson and his family lived on the ranch before they murdered Sharon Tate and six others.
Luke Perry plays Wayne Maunder, an actor on the western television series Lancer. Mike Moh plays Bruce Lee, who choreographed fight scenes in Sharon Tate’s The Wrecking Crew.
Needless to say it’s a huge cast.
