- The first teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s new movie, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” is out.
- It stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, and someone giving a great Bruce Lee impersonation.
- The movie opens in July and looks at the late ’60s in Hollywood, as its golden age is coming to an end and the US is losing its peace-and-love innocence.
It’s finally here!
The first footage of Quentin Tarantino’s ninth movie, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” has gone online and it has us excited.
Though the early talk on the movie – which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie – was that Tarantino was going to dive into the horrors of the 1969 Manson family murders, which ended with five dead including actress Sharon Tate (played by Robbie), it’s becoming clearer that the murders won’t be the focus.
The teaser homes in on TV actor Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt) as they navigate the end of the golden age of Hollywood. One of the teaser’s highlights is actor Mike Moh delivering a spot-on imitation of Bruce Lee, who does a kung fu fight scene with Booth.
As with any Tarantino movie, it can’t be summed up in a tagline or minute-and-a-half teaser. But what we can see from this is Tarantino is taking us into a time in Hollywood when change is coming, both in the industry and also in the country at large, with the oncoming loss of peace-and-love 1960s innocence.
Watch the teaser below (the movie opens in theatres in July):
