Quentin Tarantino’s ninth studio film, the hotly anticipated Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, has already been generating a lot of buzz. And it generated a lot more today when the official poster for the movie was released online and retweeted by the film’s stars.
On it, two of the film’s leads, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, stand in front of the Hollywood sign looking very 1969.
That’s a good thing, because that’s the year that the movie’s set in. So don’t worry, we’re not dealing with a True Detective Season 2 situation here where some characters are inexplicably dressed like they’re living in the early ’80s while everyone else appears to know exactly what a soy milk latte is.
In the film, Leo plays a western TV actor whose career is fading and wants to change that with the help of his stunt double (played by Brad Pitt). The movie also stars Margot Robbie, the late Luke Perry, Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning, Timothy Olyphant, Tim Roth, Damian Lewis, Kurt Russell, and Emile Hirsch.
To say it’s star-studded is an understatement.
Although there’s been plenty of write-ups hypothesizing about the plot to this mystery crime thriller set during the beginning of the end of the “Golden Era” of Hollywood, many fans of Tarantino’s flick are just excited to see the official poster for the movie.
Others are wondering if it was a rush job, though, because the result is… not great.
