Once Upon a Time in Hollywood might turn out to be a career landmark film from one of the most exciting directors of this generation. Here’s everything you need to know before you see Quentin Tarantino’s newest movie.
It’s been nearly four years since Tarantino’s last film, The Hateful Eight, and anticipation has been building for his next flick ever since. Things really started to heat up in the summer of 2017, when The Hollywood Reporter announced that Tarantino’s next project would be a film set in Hollywood at the time of the Manson murders. The film secured distribution from Sony in the fall of 2017, and by January of 2018 Leonardo DiCaprio had signed on to work with Tarantino again on the project.
The film spent the first six months of 2018 beefing up its cast as it headed into production. When it came time for a release date, Sony initially aimed for August 9th, 2019, which would mark the 50th anniversary of Sharon Tate’s murder at the hands of the Manson Family. By the summer of 2018, that release date had changed to July 26th, with insiders noting a release date in July would give the film more time to play in front of summer audiences.
