Damian in Neon – July 22, 2019

13 Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Posters Light Up the Hollywood Skyline in Neon

by Kevin Burwick | MovieWeb | July 22, 2019

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood boasts an impressive cast and a lot of them are featured in their own character posters. Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming movie has already had a bunch of great promotional posters modeled after fake movies from within Once Upon a Time and character posters featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie. However, the latest posters expand on the cast and have been spotted on billboards in major cities. Luke Perry’s son Jack even found one of his father in Los Angeles and scaled it to pose for a picture.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s Rick Dalton, Margot Robbie’s Sharon Tate, and Brad Pitt’s Cliff Booth are all featured in the new Once Upon a Time in Hollywood posters. Luke Perry plays Scott in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and the movie serves as his last role on the big screen. The actor sadly passed away earlier this year after complications from suffering a massive stroke. Actress Margaret Qualley plays Cat, while Al Pacino plays Marvin Schwarzs and they have their own posters too.

Additionally, Mike Moh’s Bruce Lee, Timothy Olyphant’s Johnny, Kurt Russell’s Randy, and Damian Lewis’ Steve McQueen are all featured in the new Once Upon a Time in Hollywood posters. Even Sayuri the dog gets her own poster as Brandy. Quentin Tarantino has been going all out in promoting the upcoming movie, which has a considerable amount of hype surrounding it. The director has talked about calling it quits when it comes to taking big screen projects on, but he still has a few idea floating around which could turn into possible projects down the line, like a possible Kill Bill 3.

Quentin Tarantino Gives Insights Into Damian’s Steve McQueen – July 4, 2019

Photostills Further Reveal Quentin Tarantino’s 9th Film

by Staff | ANI News | July 4, 2019

We are about three weeks away from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which opens in theaters July 26th! Still no sneak peek photos of Damian as Steve McQueen, but Quentin Tarantino recently shared his insights with ANI News regarding Leonardo DiCaprio’s rival role with Damian’s Steve McQueen:

“Leonardo DiCaprio plays an actor named Rick Dalton who had a very successful NBC series called Bounty Law. It started in the ’58-’59 season and ended in the ’63-’64 season. It came out the same season as Steve McQueen came out with Wanted Dead or Alive, and they’re pretty much identical shows. McQueen on Wanted Dead or Alive played a slim, cocksure bounty hunter named Josh, and on Bounty Law Rick Dalton played a slim, cocksure bounty hunter named Jake. And they were both equally popular on television for the time and the fan magazines played up the rivalry: ‘Josh or Jake, who’s the biggest hunk? We let our readers decide!’ He became quite popular and like McQueen during his hiatus, he started doing movies. And they did okay, but during McQueen’s hiatus, eventually, he did The Magnificent Seven, and that was that. So when McQueen goes back to his series to finish his last season, he’s a fucking movie star. Rick is still Jake…he doesn’t pull off the TV-to-movies transition.”

Confirmed: Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood to Premiere at Cannes – May 2, 2019

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Joins Cannes Competition Roster

by Elsa Keslassy | Variety | May 2, 2019

We reported earlier here that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood may be premiering at the Cannes Film Festival. Now, according to Variety, it’s official. We hope Damian attends as part of the “…cast in tow.” See below.

The suspense is over: Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will indeed have its world premiere and compete at the Cannes Film Festival, the fest announced Thursday.

The star-studded movie has been widely anticipated as a festival highlight but wasn’t included in Cannes’ official selection announcement on April 18. Artistic director Thierry Fremaux told journalists several times that day that he hoped for post-production on Tarantino’s film to be completed in time for the film to be shown at the festival. Fremaux said Tarantino was eager to be back at Cannes and was working hard to finish the film by May, which was a challenge because it was shot in 35mm, which takes longer to edit than digital film, and is slated for a July release.

“A Sprawling Tale of Counterculture California and the Final Days of Hollywood’s Golden Age”

by K. Austin Collins | Vanity Fair | January 25, 2019

Quentin Tarantino was six years old and living in the Los Angeles area when, in the summer of 1969, hell broke loose. You know this story: five people murdered over the course of two days that August, shot and stabbed by a clan of hippie impressionables in anticipation of Helter Skelter, Charles Manson’s idea of holy terror. It’s a Hollywood tale—not least because its most famous victim, the pregnant actress Sharon Tate, was the wife of director Roman Polanski, which put the terror square in the back lot’s backyard.

But it’s a Hollywood story for bigger reasons. This was an era, not merely an event; a lifestyle, a people, a widespread obsession—not merely a spot on a timeline or map. The city is a sprawl. So was 1969. And so is the work of Quentin Tarantino, whose last three movies were violent but (mass Nazi execution notwithstanding) playful excursions into history, all of them riffs on the deviant style and rough talkiness of the Westerns Tarantino loves, even the Dirty Dozen-esque World War II picture Inglourious Basterds, in which a motley troop of American badasses, a mock-Tennessean Brad Pitt at its helm, takes its grievances out on Nazi skulls.

“Quentin’s film is going to blow people away.” – Damian Lewis on Britannia Awards Red Carpet

Well, some dreams come true and we have been living the dream since we got word late April that Damian Lewis would play the iconic Hollywood actor Steve McQueen in Quentin Tarantino’s latest movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood!

As our long-time readers know, we have been rooting for Damian to play Steve McQueen for more than three years now. JaniaJania wrote this article about why Damian Lewis should play Steve McQueen when we got word back in 2015 that a Steve McQueen biopic was in works. And she also tweeted a question to be asked to Damian at NY Times Talks in 2016 about whether he would consider playing McQueen.
