After teasing moviegoers with a few character posters, Sony Pictures has released a first-look teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” The film already has a lot of buzz, since it pairs Tarantino with Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Timothy Olyphant, Dakota Fanning, Al Pacino, Tim Roth, Damian Lewis, Kurt Russell, Samantha Robinson, Margaret Qualley, and the late Luke Perry. Sony Pictures released the teaser on social media earlier today, and fans of the director can watch the official video below.
The story follows a has-been TV actor and his stunt double as they try to regain success during the end of Hollywood’s Golden Age in 1969 Los Angeles.
“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is scheduled to hit theaters on July 26th, the same weekend as the Katie Holmes’ thriller “The Boy 2.” The big competition will be Disney’s “Aladdin,” which is scheduled to release just one week before “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” hits theaters. While the two films don’t exactly share the same demographic, the Disney release could split the box office during its follow-up weekend. The only other major release currently scheduled for the month is Sony Pictures‘ own “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” which is scheduled to open on July 5th. If everything goes according to Sony’s design, the studio will bookmark the month of July with two massive blockbusters.
Tarantino’s previous film was “The Hateful Eight,” which also featured Kurt Russell and Tim Roth. That film made over $54M on opening weekend before grossing over $155M worldwide. Before that, Tarantino released “Django Unchained” with Leonardo DiCaprio, a film that made $30M on opening weekend before grossing $425M worldwide. If you go back one more film you will find “Inglorious Bastards,” which featured Brad Pitt. That film made $38M on opening weekend before grossing $321M worldwide. Now you can put them all together and take a trip to Hollywood.
