We’ve been covering Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood for quite some time, tracking as its cast has gotten more and more epic (and as the nature of its story has ventured further and further out there). That’s why it’s cool to have something official to share with you today; Something you can lay your eyes on, as the film took its first promotional steps today by releasing a poster.
It’s a simple one, as you might imagine from a production like Once Upon A Time In Hollywood- which can be sold almost entirely on the names involved. You don’t need lots of bells and whistles to convey what makes this film special. All you need are Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio standing around, looking cool.
The film has an official synopsis that goes a little something like this:
“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood. The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his long-time stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognise anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbour… Sharon Tate.”
Aside from Pitt, DiCaprio, the cast will also feature the acting talents of Margot Robbie (as Tate), as well as Al Pacino, Timothy Olyphant, Dakota Fanning, Lena Dunham, Michael Madsen, Danny Strong, Damian Lewis, Mike Moh, and it’ll even feature the final on screen appearance of Luke Perry.
We’re also expecting to receive the first trailer for the film this week, so stay tuned for that.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood will be Tarantino’s ninth film, and it’s set to arrive in theaters on July 26.
