Once Upon a Time in Hollywood trailer: Watch first teaser for Quentin Tarantino movie
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the latest film from Quentin Tarantino, was announced in July 2017. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is the ninth Tarantino movie, but the first to be made unaffiliated with Harvey Weinstein. A first teaser was released today but gives little away about the actual plot of the film.
The official synopsis reads: “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood.
“The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his long-time 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 (Margot Robbie).”
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood: The new teaser has landed today
For those who don’t know, Sharon Tate – th wife of director Roman Polanski – was murdered in her home by followers of the Manson family.
The trailer, however, does not give much of a hint towards how the plot will tie all of these disparate characters together.
Who stars in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood?
Al Pacino plays Marvin Shwarz, Dalton’s agent while Emile Hirsch plays Jay Sebring, a Hollywood hairstylist and friend of Tate.
Damian Lewis plays Steve McQueen, an actor and friend of Sebring who was invited by him to Tate’s home for a dinner party the night of the murders, but he was unable to show up.
Bruce Dern plays George Spahn, the 80-year-old nearly blind man who rented his Los Angeles ranch out to be used as a location for Westerns.
Manson convinced Spahn to allow him and his followers to live on the ranch, in the months before Tate was murdered.
Dakota Fanning plays Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, a member of the infamous Manson family who obtained her nickname while living on Spahn’s ranch. She was not directly involved in the Tate murders.
Scoot McNairy plays Business Bob Gilbert, a fictional cowboy character on Bounty Law.
Luke Perry plays Wayne Maunder, an actor who co-starred on the western television series Lancer.
This will be Perry’s final role; he died on March 4 from complications of a stroke.
Damon Herriman plays Manson, the infamous leader of the Manson Family, who ordered the murder of Tate and her friends.
Austin Butler plays Charles “Tex” Watson, a central member of the Manson family who, alongside three other members, was directly involved in the Tate murders.
