ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD – Official Trailer
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on May 21, 2019, and is scheduled to be theatrically released in the United States on July 26, 2019 and on August 14, 2019 in the United Kingdom. The film has received wide acclaim for its acting and the provocative depiction of the period.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (stylized as Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood) is a 2019 black comedy film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. Produced by Columbia Pictures, Heyday Films and Bona Film Group, it is an international co-production between the United States and the United Kingdom. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Kurt Russell, Timothy Olyphant, Dakota Fanning, Luke Perry, Margaret Qualley, and Al Pacino. The film is set in 1969 Los Angeles where an aging television actor and his stunt double embark on an odyssey to make a name for themselves in the film industry. It features a large ensemble cast who star in “multiple storylines in a modern fairy tale tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age.”
First announced in July 2017, the film is the first of Tarantino’s not to be associated with producer Harvey Weinstein, after Tarantino cut ties with The Weinstein Company following sexual abuse allegations against Weinstein that October. Sony Pictures won the distribution rights, having met several of Tarantino’s demands including final cut privilege. Pitt, DiCaprio, and Robbie, as well as several Tarantino regulars such as Tim Roth, Kurt Russell, and Michael Madsen, joined the cast between January and June 2018. Principal photography lasted from that June through November around Los Angeles. It is the last film to feature actor Luke Perry, who died in March 2019.
