Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will take audiences back to the golden age of hippy Hollywood while also exploring Charles Manson and the murder of Sharon Tate. The director has always had an interesting perspective in telling fictionalized versions of history. So it should be very entertaining to see what kind of story he has to tell here.
Production on the film started today for a 2019 summer release. And though it may be a while before we see anything substantial, photo drops should be enough to hold us over in the long run. The first of these comes from Leonardo DiCaprio, who has released an image of him and co-star Brad Pitt, in attire that befits the ’60s era. Check it out below.
One of the names that we’ve been hearing about for a role in Quentin Tarantino‘s next project, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, has been Margot Robbie. The film is set in 1960s Hollywood and involves the Manson Family murders, and Tarantino was looking at Robbie for the role of Sharon Tate. Now Robbie has confirmed that she has indeed been cast in the movie. She joins the previously cast Leonardo DiCaprio, who will play a TV actor looking to make it in Hollywood and Tate’s neighbor, and Brad Pitt as his friend and stunt double who shares his aspirations.
In addition to that, a group of notable actors are now in talks for various roles in the film. This includes Burt Reynolds, Kurt Russell (who starred in the director’ last project, The Hateful Eight), and Tarantino regulars Tim Roth and Michael Madsen.

Written and directed by Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained), The Hateful Eight is an ambitious Western that deals in deceit, betrayal, and buckets of bad blood.
In post-Civil War Wyoming, bounty hunter John “The Hangman” Ruth (Kurt Russell) is escorting fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) to Red Rock, where she will hang for murder. Along the way, they encounter a gunslinger named Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson) and Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff.
A blizzard forces the quartet to take shelter at a stagecoach stopover called Minnie’s Haberdashery where they encounter four strangers: Bob “The Mexican” (Demian Bichir), Oswaldo Mobray (Tim Roth), Joe Gage (Michael Madsen), and ex-Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside shanty, the eight unsavory strangers realize they may not make it to Red Rock after all.
Director Quentin Tarantino‘s latest western, The Hateful Eight, is set to be released in theaters on Christmas Day, December 25th. We’ve already seen trailers and such for the movie (you can find them right here if you’ve not yet seen them), and now a different kind of preview has been released online.
A prequel comic has been released that sets up The Hateful Eight, which is actually written by Tarantino himself. The artwork for the comic is created by Zach Meyer. You can read a full synopsis and read the set-up comic below.
The Weinstein Company has released the latest trailer for The Hateful Eight online. Starring Kurt Russell as the bounty hunter John Ruth, who is bringing in Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) for a hanging, the two must hunker down in a remote cabin with six strangers to weather out a blizzard that has hit Wyoming. The question is can John trust another bounty hunter (Samuel L. Jackson), a confederate (Bruce Dern), a sheriff (Walton Goggins), a Mexican (Demian Bichir), a little man (Tim Roth), or a cow-puncher (Michael Madsen).
Tarantino has been making the news headlines as of late, with the filmmaker joining protests about police brutality, while the targeted major metropolitan police departments are asking people to boycott the upcoming film. It’s not really clear if this will have a huge effect on the film, sometimes these things blowover, especially when there are those who will probably high off watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens just a week before. Though there are chances that his actions could come back to haunt him. In any case, check out the full trailer below.
