Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is coming back to cinemas this Friday and with some new footage to boot.
Deadline reports that Sony Pictures is set to re-release the film in over 1000 theaters with over ten minutes of new footage, spread out over the course of four scenes that will bookend the Tarantino epic.
A Sony rep says: “Audiences have shown tremendous support for this movie, and we look forward to offering them another opportunity to see the film as it’s meant to be seen – in theaters on the big screen – with more sights and sounds of the sixties from Quentin Tarantino as an added treat.”
The re-release comes as Sony has made it official that they are campaigning Brad Pitt for his fourth Oscar acting nomination in the supporting actor category, while Leonardo DiCaprio is going for the lead actor category.
We do know much more footage was ultimately cut from the film with roles like Damon Herriman’s Charles Manson and Damian Lewis’ Steve McQueen scoring much more airtime originally. Many are still speculating the film will get a multi-part Netflix TV series edit much like “The Hateful Eight” did – though that will likely be a while off.
