I’ve been buzzing with excitement for Quentin Tarantino’s all-new 9th film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood ever since it was first announced, and now with the film’s forthcoming premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, 25 years after his 1992 classic Pulp Fiction premiered at the legendary festival, we now have a brand new trailer for this truly one-of-a-kind piece of cinema extravaganza.
Watch the brand new trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
Quentin Tarantino’s ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth film from the writer-director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age.
Building on the energy of the first teaser trailer, this new trailer focuses in on the life of Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), an ambitious-yet has been actor and his student double and best friend Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), who find themselves in the rapidly changing Hollywood of 1969. Desperate for a break, and looking for any chance of success, Rick and Cliff find themselves in a strange place that involves glowing new starlet Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie), along with Charles Manson (Damon Herriman) and his strange ‘family’, and will weave in events that changed the summer of love and the history of Hollywood forever.
Just exactly what Tarantino has planned up his sleeve remains to be seen, but this new footage from the trailer looks absolutely stunning! Narrative, setting, costuming, location, cinematography and music are all brought together in a very magical way and it’s clear that we’ll be witnessing something extraordinary here.
As his first film since returning to the big screen following his Academy Award winning performance in The Revenant, DiCaprio really shines as faded-actor Rick Dalton and his desperation and desire to succeed are going to make for a compelling and very interesting performance. Added to this is Brad Pitt’s laid-back and ultra masculine performance as Dalton’s best-friend and stunt double Rick Booth and you have a combination of talent and power on screen that we haven’t seen on screen since the appearance of Paul Newman and Robert Redford.
This new trailer for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood shines with ultra cool and plenty of sex appeal, and effortlessly captures the wild energy and flower power love of the late 1960s. Set against the thumping tune of ‘Good Thing’ by Paul Revere and the Raiders, the trailer vibrates with QT’s quintessential cool and the audiences are going to be in for one very groovy time here.
Get ready for an incredible, amazing and phenomenal piece of cinema when Once Upon A Time In Hollywood arrives in cinemas on August 15.
