“In this town, it can all change…like that.” That town today will probably be Cannes for Quentin Tarantino when Once Upon A Time In Hollywood gets a 7 minute stand ovation. Not forgetting fantastic reviews and before we get a chance to sample the delights of his 9th film we get a brand new trailer!
After the delights of the rather awesome retro posters from earlier today, we get a second promo. The film is set in pre-manson family murders Hollywood. We meet Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) a struggling film/TV Actor attempting to adapt to newly changing Tinsel Town. On the side note we meet Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) the young actress newly married to Roman Polanski. Pregnant Tate would eventually become the Manson Family highest profile victim.
Many are calling it a love letter to the old Hollywood, an evocative period. In this Trailer we see Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), Dalton’s stunt double interact with Charles Manson (Damon Herriman). The full plot hasn’t been totally revealed but this promo teases the film’s dark side…
