Earlier today Sony Pictures Entertainment shared the much-anticipated first teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino‘s ninth film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, the movie is set in 1969 around the infamous Charles Manson/Manson Family murders.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood boasts a star-studded complementary cast including the likes of Al Pacino, Kurt Russell, Dakota Fanning, James Marsden, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Timothy Olyphant, Damian Lewis, Lena Dunham, Emile Hirsch, Scoot McNairy, James Remar, Brenda Vaccaro and Bruce Dern, as it features multiple storylines, which is certainly nothing new for a Tarantino picture. An homage to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age, the movie centers around aging TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), who are struggling to maneuver through an ever-changing Los Angeles.
Margot Robbie then portrays Sharon Tate, Rick’s next-door neighbor and budding model/actress who is eventually murdered by the Manson Family, while Australian actor Damon Herriman plays Charles Manson.
The first teaser trailer for Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood focuses on DiCaprio and Pitt’s characters, while we also get a glimpse of Robbie’s Sharon Tate. The clip gives us a look at Mike Moh playing Bruce Lee as well, as Lee squares up against Pitt’s Cliff Booth in a stunt scene.
Premiering this summer on July 26, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has been a long time coming. To be expected, the internet is seemingly captivated by the first look at the movie. Below we’ve highlighted some of the standout reactions to the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood trailer.
