Thank God for the stars of Once Upon A Time In… Hollywood for bringing back true Hollywood glamour to the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival. This is Cannes. Wow. (Wiping sweat away). Scorching, smoldering, fainting…… and everything else you can say to describe how we all feel right now.

Tarantino-Cinema + Leo + Brad + Margot + Old Hollywood Glamour = Explosive Iconic Legendary Breathtaking Masterpiece. I almost feel like a genie granted all our cinema wishes. From Cannes, to audiences’ hearts, and all the way to the Oscars. 

The director Quentin Tarantino had initially mentioned that his masterpiece might not be ready on time for Cannes Film Festival. All the Tarantino-cinema fans know the feeling when a Tarantino movie is announced, we go nuts. Add the names DiCaprio and Pitt to it and there is guaranteed mass hysteria around the movie. Hence, the news of the movie possibly not making it to Cannes was disappointing. Cut to a few days ago, Tarantino posts an open letter on the film’s social media pages requesting Cannes attendees to not post any spoilers to prevent ruining the movie for all (thank you, seriously thank you, I can’t even go on social media or outside my home if I am late to watch shows like Game Of Thrones or movies like Avengers Endgame. It should be a law that people cannot post spoilers): 

“I love cinema. You love cinema. It’s the journey of discovering a story for the first time,” Tarantino wrote. “I’m thrilled to be here in Cannes to share ‘Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood’ with the festival audience. 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.”

The movie boasts a star cast of Al Pacino, Luke Perry, Damian Lewis, Lena Dunham, James Marsden, Emile Hirsch, Bruce Dern, Dakota Fanning, etc. With the two mega-star principles being DiCaprio as the television actor Rick Dalton and Pitt as the stuntman Cliff Booth. The movie chronicles the transition of Hollywood through two different eras and the two stars’ journey with it while things get mixed up with the whole Sharon Tate and Manson Family cult scandal. Margot Robbie stars as Tate. The film will release in theatres nationwide on July 26, 2019. 

Quick trivia on the movie and around it: 

  1. The last time Tarantino showed his movie at Cannes was during the premiere of Inglorious Basterds
  2. Once Upon A Time In… Hollywood premieres on the 25th anniversary of Pulp Fiction (1994), the film had won the Palme d’Or. 
  3. Tarantino capitalizes Cinema. And I fully support it. Thank you for all the Cinema you have blessed us with. 

We really hope everyone gets the message and avoids releasing any spoilers. Thank you. Seriously, thank you. 

Back to Cannes. Wow. Thank you. Everyone take notes. That is how you do Cannes. If the red carpet alone was that iconic, then I can only imagine how great the movie is going to be. 

We wait to witness the greatness of Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood. Christmas is in July this year?
