Sony Pictures has released the second trailer for Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. The first trailer was released back in March.
The mega-ensemble film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Rick Dalton, a TV actor who is looking to make his break into movies, and Brad Pitt as Dalton’s stunt double. Set during the end of the Golden Age of Hollywood, the two navigate their way through the changes of the entertainment business, all the while not realizing that their neighbor, Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie), will become a part of one of the most infamous murders of 1969. Check out the full trailer below.
Here’s the official plot 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.
Al Pacino, Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Emile Hirsch, Damian Lewis, Dakota Fanning, Mike Moh, and the late Burt Reynolds and Luke Perry are also a part of the cast. They all play a variety of roles that are created for the film or based on actual people.
Producing the movie is David Heyman, Shannon McIntosh, and Tarantino.
With the film making its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival today, Tarantino sent out a letter urging those who have seen it not to reveal any spoilers to anyone.
It’s always interesting to see how Tarantino views history. He is an auteur who infuses references to classic films and pop culture into them. Often times there is a sense of hyper-reality when it comes to some of his more historical pieces. So it should be a lot of fun to see how Once Upon A Time In Hollywood plays out. And we should learn a lot more about the film after its viewed at Cannes.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Tarantino’s ninth film, is set to be released in theaters on July 26th.
