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.”

Until then, here is a collection of reviews that we’ve found mentioning Damian or “cameo” actors that are sure to whet your appetite.

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.

First Trailer for Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood Could Be Arriving Next Week – March 16, 2019

McQueen On Our Screens?

by Charlie Ridgely | Comicbook.com | March 15, 2019

Quentin Tarantino’s first movie since 2015’s The Hateful Eight is taking the director’s popular, aggressive approach to a real-life tragedy. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which hits theaters this summer, deals with the issue of the Manson Family Murders in Los Angeles, circa 1969.

Fans have been holding their beath, waiting to see the first footage from the film, and its debut is set to arrive very soon. In fact, it looks like the trailer for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is going to be online in just a few days.

Rumors had been swirling around social media, suggesting that the first trailer for Tarantino’s new flick would be released next week. Those reports were seemingly confirmed on Thursday, when Trailer Track broke the news that the trailer had officially been rated for released.

According to Trailer Track’s report, Once Upon a Time has been rated by Alberta Film Ratings, which means it’s preparing to be released. The trailer has been rated for audiences aged 14 years or older, and it sits at one minute, 35 seconds in length.

Odds are, the trailer is set to be released in theaters with Jordan Peele’s Us, the R-rated horror film debuting next Friday. With that in mind, the trailer could find its way online at any point during the next week, but definitely before Thursday night.

Quentin Tarantino Returns with One Hell of a Cast

by Lewis Knight I Mirror I March 6, 2019

It’s almost the occasion to delve back into the past of the swinging sixties, but it’s no regular trip if it’s with director Quentin Tarantino.

Having enjoyed his time with the Western genre with Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight, the iconic auteur is returning with what is sure to be another violent and sprawling odyssey, featuring an all-star cast and zany dialogue.

Featuring Tarantino returnees such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Tim Roth, but also newbies such as Margot Robbie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is certain to be a piece of cinema that everyone will be talking about.

But when can we expect the film to be released in the UK?

Exclusive Preview: New Images from Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood – Jan 25, 2019

“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.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

July 26, 2019

Quentin Tarantino has assembled a formidable cast for this intriguing drama set in Hollywood in 1969, on the eve of the Manson family murders. Leonardo DiCaprio is Rick Dalton, a washed-up TV actor who lives next-door to Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie), while Brad Pitt plays Rick’s long-time stuntman.
