Quentin Tarantino’s comedy movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was written and directed in 2019. It is a co-production between the United States, the United Kingdom, and China, produced by Columbia Pictures, Bona Film Group, Heyday Films, and Visiona Romantica, and distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing.
It stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie among a big ensemble cast. The movie follows a fading actor and his stunt double as they navigate the rapidly changing film industry in 1969 Los Angeles, with the threat of the Tate murders lurking overhead. ‘Multiple storylines in a modern fairy tale tribute to the dying moments of Hollywood’s golden age,’ according to the press release.
It is the first Tarantino picture to be announced without the participation of Bob and Harvey Weinstein after Tarantino stopped his collaboration with the brothers following sexual assault claims against the latter. The picture was distributed by Sony Pictures after a bidding war, and it met Tarantino’s demands, including final edit privilege.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood had its world premiere on May 21, 2019, at the Cannes Film Festival, and was released in theaters on July 26, 2019, in the United States and August 14, 2019, in the United Kingdom. Tarantino’s direction and script, as well as the performances, cinematography, soundtrack, sound design, costume design, and production values, have all received critical acclaim.
Tarantino’s debut as an author, a novelization of the same name, was published on June 29, 2021. Tarantino is now working on a television series called Bounty Law, which is based on a TV show described in the flick.
