The Trailer For Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Has Been Released

The first trailer for the eagerly-anticipated Quentin Tarantino film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood has finally dropped.

The film, which has been in the works for years, stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie.

Al Pacino, Kurt Russell and Dakota Fanning have also all been snapped up for the movie, which tells the tale of former TV actor Rick Dalton (played by DiCaprio) and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt), following their attempts to break into the film industry during 1969 in LA - right at the time of the Manson Family murders.


Margot Robbie plays Sharon Tate, who was brutally murdered in her home by the Manson Family while pregnant. For those not au fait with 1970s Hollywood, Tate was the wife of director Roman Polanski.

Over a year ago, Tarantino told Deadline: "The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt).

"Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don't recognise anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbour... Sharon Tate."


He added: "I've been working on this script for five years, as well as living in Los Angeles County most of my life, including in 1969, when I was seven years old.

"I'm very excited to tell this story of an LA and a Hollywood that don't exist anymore. And I couldn't be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio and Pitt as Rick and Cliff."

The star-studded affair will also enable viewers to watch Luke Perry's final role. The 52-year-old former Beverly Hills 90210 actor passed away on 4 March after suffering from a stroke the week prior to his death.


DiCaprio posted a tribute on social media after the tragedy:

According to Entertainment Weekly, filming had already finished when Perry passed away meaning that he completed his work as Scott Lancer where he portrays one of the main characters on the Western TV series Lancer which ran on CBS from 1968 to 1970.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is set to be released in the UK on 14 August, 2019. It will be shown in the US on 26 July 2019.
