Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino's ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’

"Quentin Tarantino’s star-studded “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” landed another legendary actor: Al Pacino." The addition of Pacino mixed him in to an already stacked cast of actors such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Kurt Russell, Michael Madsen, Burt Reynolds, Tom Roth, Emile Hirsch, and Timothy Olyphant, Damian Lewis, Luke Perry, Emile Hirsch, Dakota Fanning, Clifton Collins Jr, Keith Jefferson and Nicholas Hammond.

Sony Pictures motion picture group chairman Tom Rothman has mentioned that "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood" is “the best screenplay that I have had the privilege to read.”

"Once Upon A Time In Hollywood" has been compared to "Pulp Fiction" by its Tarantino as well.

Of course, the hype machine is very well under way for this latest QT endeavor. However, ever since "Pulp Fiction", Tarantino has cautiously made sure not to replicate the stylistic and narrative aspects of 'Pulp'. The fact that QT has decided to embrace and revisit that film and go back to it surely makes any cinephile excited and gleeful at the prospect. 

The films that QT released post-Pulp Fiction all made sure to sidestep whatever was used in that 1994 film: "Jackie Brown" was based on an Elmore Leonard novel and was inspired by blaxploitation films, "Kill Bill" was inspired by Japanese grindhouse cinema, "Inglorious Basterds," was a revisionistic war movie, "Django Unchained" was inspired by Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns and "The Hateful Eight" felt like a violent version of an Agatha Christie novel. 

“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” opens on August 9th, 2019.
