‘Once Upon A Time … In Hollywood’ Hits Cannes With Star Power And New Trailer


Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, director Quentin Tarantino and company attended the Cannes Film Festival to promote Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood. Coupled with a new trailer, it was definitely a big splash for the highly anticipated feature.

Early reviews of Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood have been great, and Twitter reactions to the film have also been highly positive. The early discussions of the flick being a hybrid of the bending fact stylings of Inglourious Basterds and the mature, easy as Sunday morning storytelling of Jackie Brown are highly encouraging.

The trailer itself, along with displaying an eye-catching visual display of La La Land in 1969, also offers up a slight callback to the aforementioned Basterds (this time it’s DiCaprio who’s doing the Nazi killing) and Tarantino’s Westerns. Brad Pitt (Inglourious Basterds) and Leonardo DiCaprio (Django Unchained) have delivered first rate work in the director’s previous films, and having The Hateful Eight’s Kurt Russell as part of the ensemble is also a welcome sight.

Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood’s running time of 165 minutes is a doozy, but for Tarantino fans a meaty narrative is part of the equation. One of these days (probably before the release of Once Upon a Time), I’ll get to the extended version of The Hateful Eight, now playing in miniseries form on Netflix. Until then, I’ll just enjoy the new trailer to Tarantino’s latest. Check it out and tell me what you think of the trailer!!

Co-starring Margaret Qualley and Timothy Olyphant, Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood hits theaters July 26.
