Quentin Tarantino is going back to 1969 with his next film, this year’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Set against the backdrop of the infamous Manson Family murders, the film will be released on July 26 by Sony Pictures, and we’ve got the full trailer today.
This trailer paints a much clearer picture of the film’s plot, with Leonardo DiCaprio playing aging actor Rick Dalton, Brad Pitt as his stuntman, and Charles Manson lurking nearby…
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood stars Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Al Pacino, along with Margot Robbie, Kurt Russell, Dakota Fanning, James Mardsen, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Timothy Olyphant, Damian Lewis, Lena Dunham, Emile Hirsch, Luke Perry, Scoot McNairy and James Remar.
The film is a Pulp Fiction-esque tapestry of stories in and around Los Angeles in the summer of 1969, when Charles Manson and his followers massacred Sharon Tate and others.
Lead characters are Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor… Sharon Tate (Robbie).
