- The first poster for Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming movie, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” was released by Sony Pictures on Monday.
- People online weren’t impressed and called the artwork “disappointing” and “underwhelming.”
- The poster features Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, and many people thought that Pitt’s face didn’t match his body. They also compared him to a wax figure.
The first official poster for Quentin Tarantino’s new movie called “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” was released, and people are having a field day with the amateurish design.
The movie is set in Los Angeles, California in the 1960s, and stars Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. Pitt plays a fictional TV actor named Rick Dalton and DiCaprio portrays his stunt double, Cliff Booth. Margot Robbie also stars as real-life actress Sharon Tate, who was murdered by Charles Manson and his followers in California in August 1969.
On Monday, a poster was shared by Sony Pictures that shows Pitt and DiCaprio standing in front of a yellow car. The film title is written in a font that resembles that of the iconic Hollywood side, which is also visible in the artwork.

Strangely, the more you zoom in on Brad Pitt’s super weird looking head, the less super weird it looks. Absolutely one of the worst posters ever. pic.twitter.com/5AaQMhk9DJ

How nice of Madame Tussaud’s to lend out their Brad Pitt wax figure for this poster pic.twitter.com/W1E57dJWci

This is the most obviously photoshopped pic of Brad Pitt I've ever seen.

It looks like Brad Pitt’s Head is photoshopped onto the body of…Brad Pitt? Super awkward. I miss illustrated by hand movie posters

The poster was also described as “underwhelming” and “lazy.”
Huh. That’s…an underwhelming poster. With bad face-replacement photoshop on Brad Pitt’s face. https://t.co/GWcT362Man

I love how this really doesn’t need any marketing beyond “hey Brad Pitt Leonardo DiCaprio Quentin Tarantino” and this lazy poster is so beautifully smugly aware of it https://t.co/d0Apj7ZKSI

What I’m getting from this surprisingly bad poster is that the film stars Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. pic.twitter.com/pwxfwWdPxH
