The first teaser for Quentin Tarantino’s 9th film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has dropped, revealing nothing but also a whole lot.
The teaser doesn’t reveal anything by way of the plot but we get a nice introduction to the film’s leads, the gorgeous late 60’s Hollywood setting and glimpses of Tarantino’s signature brand of humorous dialogue as well as one famous, legendary martial arts film superstar.
Bruce Lee, played by Mike Moh being the star in question, makes a funny appearance in the trailer alongside looks at DiCaprio’s Rick Dalton, a famous Hollywood actor and his stunt double Cliff Booth played by Brad Pitt.
We don’t know any specifics about the plot as yet, however, we do know it’s set in the vicinity of the Charles Manson murders and Margot Robbie, who plays Sharon Tate has a key role in the film and gets some screentime in the teaser.
Tarantino has gone on record in the past saying that he plans to direct only 10 movies before retiring and his next, and 9th film looks to be a doozy based on this new teaser.
It features one of the most impressive (and epic) casts to feature in a QT film, with co-stars including Al Pacino, Burt Reynolds, Clifton Collins Jr., Dakota Fanning, Damian Lewis, Emile Hirsch, James Marsden, Kurt Russell, Luke Perry, Scoot McNairy, Tim Roth, Timothy Olyphant and Tom Cruise.
It really doesn’t get much better than that for casting.
See the film on 15 August 2019 and after you see the teaser, check out our cool article about the Tarantino-verse!
