It has taken long enough, we’ve waited and waited, and now we’re getting our first look at Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood! This movie is an interesting topic because it seems as if the consensus is that we’re all excited but also wary of what Tarantino is going to do with Sharon Tate’s story.
Though the trailer comes hot on the heels of the poster releases, Twitter is still divided over the marketing for the film. First, they released a poster with just Brad Pitt as Cliff Booth and Leonardo DiCaprio as Rick Dalton in it with no sign of Margot Robbie’s Sharon Tate (arguably what people are most excited for).
Then, as if hearing me screaming about how I want my Margot Robbie poster, Sony gave us a beautiful poster of Robbie’s Tate, which is eerily perfect, and now we have this trailer. What are we going to do when there isn’t a constant influx of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood content to keep us happy until the film is released?
In the end, it could be something as perfect as Resevoir Dogs (for me), or it can be a movie that I truly can’t stomach. Sometimes, the gore and the blood is too much for me, but—and I’ve said this before—I’m hoping that Tarantino deals with the murder of Sharon Tate in a way that shocks us (as the actual murder did) and doesn’t glorify this tragedy, especially since I’m overly excited about Tate actually getting to tell her story, for once.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood hits theaters this July 29th.
