Special Collector’s Edition Includes Seven Additional Scenes
by Staff | Best Classic Bands | October 29, 2019
Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood is getting an elaborate Special Collector’s Blu-ray edition with plenty of extra scenes and other goodies. The title, also available on DVD and as a traditional Blu-ray, arrives on Dec. 10 via Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Filmmaker Tarantino made his directorial debut with 1992’s Reservoir Dogs. Since then, he’s been sparing in his releases, which includes such films as Pulp Fiction (1994), the back-to-back Kill Bill movies (2003-04) and Inglorious Basterds (2009).
2019’s Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood – starring Tarantino veterans Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt – is described as a visit to “1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth film from the writer-director features multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age.”
The film is Tarantino’s second biggest of his career, with a dynamic $367 million at the worldwide box-office, behind his 2012 picture, Django Unchained ($425 million).
The DVD and other formats are being released on Dec. 10. The 2-disc 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray Collector’s Edition includes seven additional scenes, an all-new, exclusive mini edition of MAD Magazine – inspired by the film – a 45 rpm vinyl record with two of the soundtrack’s tunes (complete with a turntable adapter), a collectible vintage poster from the film, and more. Pre-order it here.

More McQueen Footage Perhaps?
by Anthony D’Alessandro | Deadline | October 23, 2019
There was always talks that Quentin Tarantino would add more scenes to his ninth movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood following its premiere at Cannes, finally, here it is, a new cut, just in time for awards season that Sony will re-release in around 1,500 theaters on Friday. Four never-before-scenes will be added, book-ending the new print. The movie, Tarantino’s first outside of his partnership with the Weinsteins, is his second-grossing ever stateside with $139.8M, $368.3M worldwide behind Django Unchained. The pic opened during the final weekend of July to $41M and one of the few pieces of counter-programming in a Disney-filled IP summer to work.
For those living in LA and happened to catch Hollywood at Tarantino’s Beverly Cinema, that print offered up an extended cut of a Bounty Law segment (the TV show starring DiCaprio’s Rick Dalton character). The movie follows Dalton, a fading movie star who is crashing into TV and his loyal stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). They also happen to be neighbors to Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) in the Hollywood Hills at a socially-disruptive time in LA, the summer of ’69. Al Pacino also stars.

The True Story of Once Upon a Time in…Hollywood Characters
by Rebecca Alter | Vulture | August 2, 2019
Warning: spoilers ahead.
Quentin Tarantino plays fast and loose with historical revisionism like he’s a kid left alone with action figures, or a Harry/Louis slash-fic writer drowning in AO3 tags. He takes a piece of history that’s captured his imagination, creates a Mary Sue or two to beat the boogeymen at the boss level, and poof! His avenging avatars kill Hitler, save Sharon Tate, and burn down one more plantation blighting the earth. Like Inglourious Basterds before it, Tarantino populates his ninth film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, with real figures alongside more reality-adjacent ones. So for those of us (all of us) less versed in his brand of fanboy ephemera, here’s a map to the stars, real and pretend, in OUATIH.
