Director/writer Quentin Tarantino and his Once Upon A Time In Hollywood cast (including Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Margot Robbie) attended Monday night’s Hollywood premiere of the feature, and Tarantino talked about why he sees his work as an interactive experience.
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.
Actor Chiwetel Ejifor (12 Years a Slave, Redbelt) was in Los Angeles to promote his upcoming drama Z for Zachariah, a post apocalyptic drama based on the novel by late writer Robert C. O’Brien.

But let’s start off with Ejiofor’s foray into another drama – Secret In Their Eyes.
There’s a new release date for the thriller/drama Z for Zachariah, as the feature is set for an August 28 release via Roadside Attractions (it was initially set for an August 21 bow). Chris Pine, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Margot Robbie topline the feature.
Double-cross, manipulations, twists and turns, and snap, crackle and pop dialogue are among the trademarks in Will Smith’s latest venture Focus. Master thief Nicky Spurgeon (Smith) may have the world on a string, that is until seductive (and whip smart) con artist Jess Barrett (Margot Robbie) walks into his life. Rodrigo Santoro and Gerald McRaney co-star.
Although Focus’ narrative has its share of sleight of hand tactics, its seductive allure isn’t just all about flash: the story originates from the minds of Crazy, Stupid, Love writer-directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa.
During the Focus press conference, Will Smith admitted that during his childhood he was a bit of a jokester:
Focus is now playing nationwide.
