Quentin Tarantino is back in the director’s chair for his
eagerly anticipated 9th feature film, “Once Upon a Time in
Hollywood”. The teaser trailer has got everybody excited and buzzing already
before the 26th July release date. The film follows DiCaprio’s
character as his life intertwines with a real life tragedy set against the
backdrop of the glitzy and glamorous world of 1960’s Hollywood.
The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Rick Dalton, a western television series actor in decline alongside Brad Pitt as his stunt double and Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate, the beautiful actress who was gruesomely murdered by Charles Manson and his cult.

Tarantino is back to his roots for this one. Once Upon a
Time in Hollywood is set in Los Angeles as opposed to the Western settings
shown in his last two features, “Django Unchained” and “The Hateful Eight”. According to various reports, this film will
be much closer in narrative to Tarantino’s undisputed masterpiece, “Pulp
Fiction”. The film will probably have different storylines getting tangled up
together making it very exciting.
In the words of Quentin Tarantino, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt are the most exciting pair to star alongside each other since Robert Redford and Paul Newman. From the teaser we sure get the feeling that watching this duo on the big screen will surely be a lot of fun. Brad Pitt is a character actor trapped inside a leading man’s body. His quirky persona coupled with Tarantino’s written dialogue can be amazing. DiCaprio on the other hand rarely ventures outside of his domain and does a role with a comedic twist but this might be one of those roles. The last scene in the teaser with DiCaprio and the girl was hilarious.

The teaser gives us a very radiant 60’s vibe. The fashion, the billboards and the clothes all give us a feel of that 60’s counterculture in full swing. Margot Robbie looks stunning and strikingly similar to the real life Sharon Tate. The scene with Bruce Lee is astonishing. Mike Moh looked exactly like the real life martial arts superstar. Tarantino’s love for old cinema is quite evident to all and according to reports we will see many notable people from that era as characters like the legendary Hollywood actor, Steve McQueen and Sharon Tate’s husband director, Roman Polanski amongst many others.
Other characters making an appearance include the central
figures of the Manson Family who were notorious for their murders and their
bizarre cult practices. The cast of the film is stellar. Many Tarantino
regulars like Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Kurt Russell are a part of the film
and Hollywood Icon Al Pacino will be teaming up for the first time with Quentin
Tarantino fans cannot wait for this one. Would we see an
alternate version of events unfold like we saw in “Inglorious Basterds” or
would we see a very different movie altogether but one things for certain we
can expect absolute quality from the last of the old fashioned film directors
i.e. Quentin Tarantino.
