Summer can’t come soon enough.
Set in 1969 Los Angeles, Once Upon a Time features DiCaprio as Rick Dalton, the former star of a western TV series, and Pitt as his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth. They’re both struggling to survive in a Hollywood they no longer recognize. Although, one person they do recognize is Rick’s next-door neighbor, Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie), who is set to be Charles Manson’s most famous victim.
For his ninth feature (and possibly his penultimate), Tarantino has assembled a talented sprawling cast that also includes Al Pacino, Bruce Dern (taking over for Burt Reynolds), Dakota Fanning, Timothy Olyphant, Emile Hirsch, Damian Lewis, Michael Madsen, Lena Dunham, Kurt Russell, and the late Luke Perry.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood opens in theaters on July 26.
