Quentin Tarantino’s new film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” premieres on Tuesday at the Cannes Film Festival, and the filmmaker has reached out on social media to those in attendance.
The Los Angeles 1969-set noir tale follows a washed-up ex-western actor (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double (Brad Pitt) trying to make it in the movie business, and they end up trying to score the help of their neighbor Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie).
Ahead of the red carpet debut, the filmmaker has asked media and others attending the event to avoid giving away too much about the film. Posting a photo of a printed letter he says:
“I love cinema, You love cinema. It’s the journey of discovering a story for the first time. The cast and crew have worked so hard to create something original, and I only ask that everyone avoids revealing anything that would prevent later audiences from experiencing the film in the same way.”
Timothy Olyphant, Al Pacino, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Damian Lewis, Luke Perry, Emile Hirsch, Dakota Fanning, Clifton Collins, James Marsden and Scoot McNairy co-star in the film which opens July 26th – two months after its Cannes debut.
