Official: Tarantino’s New Film WILL Make It To Cannes!

by Paul Heath

It is official, Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood WILL get its world premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. It will debut as part of the ‘Competition’ line-up. The announcement of its Cannes debut comes with an official running time – it’s another long one – at 2 hours and 45 minutes. It was also confirmed by official press release that Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, and Brad Pitt – and potentially more cast members – will also be in town to support the movie.


General Delegate Thierry Frémaux said:

“We were afraid the film would not be ready, as it wouldn’t be released until late July, but Quentin Tarantino, who has not left the editing room in four months, is a real, loyal and punctual child of Cannes! Like for Inglourious Basterds, he’ll definitely be there – 25 years after the Palme d’or for Pulp Fiction – with a finished film screened in 35mm and his cast in tow (Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt). His film is a love letter to the Hollywood of his childhood, a rock music tour of 1969, and an ode to cinema as a whole.
In addition to thanking Quentin and his crew for spending days and nights in the editing room, the Festival wants to give special thanks to the teams at Sony Pictures, who made all of this possible.”

Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognise anymore. The ninth film from the writer-director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age.

Watch the trailer for the film below. The Cannes Film Festival runs from 14th-25th May.
