The Teaser For Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Is a Wild, Star-Studded Ride
The first look at Once Upon a Time in Hollywood pretty much sets up everything you'd expect from a Quentin Tarantino production: fight scenes, offbeat humor, and a whole lot of stars. In the recently released teaser, viewers are introduced to Rick Dalton, an actor who perhaps takes himself a little too seriously, and his affable stunt double Cliff Booth - portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, respectively.

Taking place in 1969, the film will also be backdropped by the Manson Family murders, with Margot Robbie portraying Sharon Tate. Elaborating on the premise at CinemaCon nearly a year ago, Tarantino said, "It takes place at the height of the counter-culture explosion, at the height of the hippie revolution, and at the height of a new Hollywood." He added, "During this Summer, we will, little by little, street by street, block by block, transform Los Angeles into the psychedelic era of

Why Bruce Lee’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Costume Is an Intriguing Surprise

Why Bruce Lee’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Costume Is an Intriguing Surprise
The press materials that accompanied the new trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” say the film “visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing.” But a delightful scene in the trailer, featuring Mike Moh as Bruce Lee, seems to take place in 1967.

Or 1966. Let me explain.

In the late 1960s, Lee kicked around Hollywood serving as a martial-arts “sifu,” or master, to actors like Steve McQueen. He also choreographed fight scenes and played sidekick roles, even though he could out-kick, out-punch, and usually out-joke the leading man.

His first big sidekick role was as Kato on “The Green Hornet,” which aired on ABC from 1966 to 1967. On the show, Lee’s Kato wore a traditional chauffeur’s uniform of black gloves and a collared, double-breasted black tunic.

Why Bruce Lee Is All Over the Teaser for Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’

Why Bruce Lee Is All Over the Teaser for Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’
Perhaps the greatest delight of the new teaser for Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” is the unexpected prominence of Bruce Lee. Lee, played by Mike Moh, demonstrates his kung-fu mastery with stuntman Cliff Booth, played by Brad Pitt.

He’s onscreen for about 15 seconds of the one-minute-forty-five-second trailer, but they’re electrifying. Why is Lee there? Partly, of course, because Tarantino adores him. But this isn’t a case of a director shoehorning someone into a story. Lee played a small but significant — and very bizarre — part in the story of the Manson killings.

There’s no telling how much of that story will be in Tarantino’s film. And if you don’t want to know the details, we’d recommend you stop reading now.

Because once upon a time in Hollywood, believe it or not, a young director named Roman Polanski briefly

The Cast of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Goes '60s Chic in These Official Photos

Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood officially unveiled the first movie poster, and it's totally retro. The forthcoming period piece is set in 1969, centered around Charles Manson's cult, the shocking murder of Sharon Tate, and its aftershock in Hollywood and the film industry.

The star-studded cast includes Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning, and more. In what appears to be a cheeky twist, DiCaprio will be portraying a struggling actor, and Pitt will play his stunt double. Meanwhile, Robbie will take on the challenging task of portraying Tate.

Filming began in Summer of 2018, and both DiCaprio and Robbie have offered insight into the film by sharing first looks at their respective characters. Though DiCaprio and Pitt wear the late '60s apparel surprisingly well, it's Robbie's uncanny resemblance to Tate that will leave you stunned. See pictures from the film ahead before

The Significant Role Charles Manson Plays in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Quentin Tarantino doesn't need an introduction - he's the auteur who brought us gratuitously gory films such as Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, and Django Unchained. Now, he's onto his ninth film with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, a $100 million project that convinced even Leonardo DiCaprio to take a hefty pay cut. Since Tarantino only plans to make 10 movies, this is certainly going to be a treat, boasting a cast of the fine actors to prove it. In the movie, the writer-director crafts a narrative that touches upon one of the most disturbing murders in Hollywood history - that of celebrity Sharon Tate under the orders of Charles Manson.

Fictional Elements

The Manson murders won't be the main focus of the plot, which is still being kept under wraps. But we'll certainly see everyone involved in the case, including Tate (Margot Robbie), Manson (Damon Herriman), Manson's followers, and a handful of '60s celebrities.

“Actors are required to do a lot of dangerous stuff,” Dalton says at the beginning of the clip. “Cliff here is meant to carry the load.”

“Carrying his load? Yeah, that’s about right,” Booth says.

Rushes: Barbara Hammer, "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" Trailer, Wong Kar-wai's "Blossoms"

NEWSBarbara Hammer by Mickalene Thomas for Vanity FairA treasured trailblazer of the American avant-garde, lesbian artist and filmmaker Barbara Hammer, has died. In a posthumously published interview with Vanity Fair, Hammer discusses the intertwining of her personal life and political obligations that appear in her works: "I’ve never understood why experiences need be separated into categories. And, so, I don’t." Amid ongoing talks among both parties, the Cannes Film Festival will not be screening any Netflix films in or out of its competition this year. The decision rules out a number of titles from screening, including Martin Scorsese's The Irishman and the Safdie brothers' Uncut Gems.To our surprise and elation, Wong Kar-Wai has confirmed that Blossoms will be his next film, and will act as the third part to In the Mood For Love and 2046.

Cannes Intrigue Spikes: Tarantino, Almodóvar, Malick Trending Up; ‘Ad Astra’, ‘Against All Enemies’, Netflix Not Expected
We’re just a few weeks away from the annual unveiling of the Cannes Film Festival lineup, and, as ever, speculation is running high about what will and won’t strut down the Croisette from May 14-25. Also as usual, nothing is set in stone until fest chief Thierry Frémaux makes the announcement. However, we’ve been able to glean some intel into what’s likely to be in store for the official selection — and what is not.

Regarding the big-ticket titles, the one on everyone’s lips is Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. While we’ve heard a possible May 21 date floated — which would slot in nicely given it would mark 25 years to the day that Tarantino debuted Pulp Fiction, going on to win the Palme d’Or — and sources have indicated the film is likely to make it, we also understand that no firm
