Sony Pictures released the first poster for Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood on Monday (Mar 18), the first major work by the lauded director since 2015’s The Hateful Eight.

To be released this July, the film stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt as a television actor and his trusted stunt double who are trying to break out of TV and into the world of Hollywood moviemaking. 

Tarantino, who is directing, producing, and writing for the film, describes it as "a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood”.

"I've been working on this script for five years, as well as living in Los Angeles County most of my life, including in 1969, when I was seven years old," Tarantino said in an interview. 

"I'm very excited to tell this story of an LA and a Hollywood that don't exist anymore. And I couldn't be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio and Pitt as Rick and Cliff."

The characters live next door to Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) and Roman Polanski (Rafał Zawierucha), which hints at a plot that includes Tate’s murder by the Manson family cult, with Damon Herriman starring as the serial killer. 

The cast also includes Bruce Dern, Damian Lewis, Al Pacino, Emilie Hirsh, Lena Dunham, Dakota Fanning and more. The late Luke Perry was also cast before his death earlier this month.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood will be released in the US on July 26. The release date for Singapore is yet to be announced.
