The new film by Quentin Tarantinostarring Leonardo Di Caprio, Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt, Once Upon a Time … In Hollywood, will have a world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
This year is the celebration of 25 years of the classic pulp Fiction, by Tarantino, who debuted on Croisette, highlighting the director’s connection to the event.
Thierry Frémaux, from the Cannes delegation, commented: “we feared that the film would not be ready, and would not be released until July, but Quentin Tarantino, who has not left the editing room in the past four months, is really loyal and punctual as a son of Cannes. Like Inglourious Basterds, he will definitely be here, 25 years after the Palme d’Or for Pulp Fiction, with a 35mm finished film and cast. His film is a love letter to Hollywood and his childhood, a musical tour in 1969, and an ode to cinema in its entirety. In addition to thanking Tarantino and his team for spending nights and days in the editing room, the festival especially thanks Sony Pictures for making it all possible“.
Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood, by Quentin Tarantino, revisits the 1969 Los Angeles where everything was in transformation, through the story of TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) who chart their way through a industry that they don’t even recognize anymore. The ninth film by the director and screenwriter features a large cast and multiple parallel stories to pay tribute to the closing moments of Hollywood’s golden age.
In the cast we also have Damian Lewis, Luke Perry, Emile Hirsch, Dakota Fanning, Clifton Collins Jr., Keith Jefferson and Nicholas Hammond.
