Once Upon a Time in Hollywood cruises in with a squinty poster


Safe to say, we’re all really excited for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood to come out so we can watch another Quentin Tarantino movie be awesome. We’ve been waiting long enough as it is, but now we at least have a poster and it has plenty of furrowed Bad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio brows in it. The duo are playing Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and Cliff Booth (Pitt), two acquaintances of Sharon Tate, played by Margot Robbie. Evidently, the California sun is going to make them squint a lot. 

Also, Bard Pitt looks really young. I mean the guy has always looked young but I’m thinking there’s some digital trickery going here much like Samuel L. Jackson in Captain Marvel. Maybe it’s just a heavily photoshopped poster, though. That happens a lot. We’ll have to wait and see when the first trailer drops, which will probably soon since poster drops are usually followed closely by trailers. 

The movie itself is set in Hollywood during the time of the Manson Family murders, but not specifically about them. That idea alone makes the film Tarantino as fuck, but the extensive list of top tier actors including Kurt Russel, Timothy Olyphantt, and Dakota Fanning does as well. 

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will release July 26, 2019.
