Set in 1969 L.A., the film follows TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) as Hollywood reaches the final moments of its golden age. Here we see Rick asking Randy, played by Kurt Russell, to do him a favour and give Cliff some kind of position on set. Anything will do. Alas, Randy isn’t having it.
That highly receognisable Tarantino flow and dialogue is here as we get a taste of these three personalities. Plus, is that a stutter we notice there, Rick?
Not long now! Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood, also starring Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, Luke Perry, Timothy Olyphant and Margaret Qualley, among others, will be hitting US cinemas on July 26 and arriving in Australia on August 15.
Quentin Tarantino’s ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth film from the writer-director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age.
