FIRST LOOK: Images from Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’

Fanboys/Fangirls: A large dump of publicity stills from the forthcoming highly-anticipated star-studded Quentin Tarantino vehicle ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ has hit the fan, and they are gorgeous!

‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ takes place in  Los Angeles during the Charles Manson cult murders of 1969. Industry outlets report that the film will not be a Manson biopic, but grounded during that period with historical crosslinks, which Tarantino has described as having a “Pulp Fiction vibe.” Rather, the film will follow a struggling actor (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double (Brad Pitt). The rub: their next door neighbor is actress Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie), who was killed by members of Manson’s family clan under his direct orders. Al Pacino will play Marvin Shwarz, Rich Dalton’s agent

“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 doesn’t exist anymore.” — Quentin Tarantino

Variety confirmed today that the Sony’s Columbia Pictures backed venture will have China’s Bona Film Group as co-investors of the production, with Sony handling distribution in the North American market and Bona handling the Greater China market. Now that’s broad market reach!

This production is 100% certified Harvey Weinstein free.

‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ is scheduled to hit cinemas on July 26, 2019, which was re-scheduled from its originally publicized date of August 9, 2019 that would have coincided with the 50th anniversary of the actual Manon murders. With a budget approaching a $100 million and Tarantino at the helm, ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ should dominate the 2019 buzz field. We can expect a trailer in the near future…

But until then, and without further delay, here are the visual goods:
