AceShowbiz - Sony Pictures has debuted the first teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" after teasing it with a number of posters. Introducing the two main characters, Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), it goes full 1960s with black-and-white footage for an interview with Rick and Cliff, sideburns and vintage cars.
The teaser trailer doesn't shed light on the storyline, but gives a look at the lives of Rick and Cliff. Cliff, whose job is to carry Rick's "load," is seen cruising the town in a car with the Hollywood actor. In another scene, he's seen sparring with kung fu master Bruce Lee (Mike Moh).
Rick, on the other hand, is seen filming a cheesy dance joined by two ladies. He later gets emotional when a little girl tells him how good his acting is.
There's also a glimpse of Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) who is cheerfully dancing, Charles Manson (Damon Herriman) greeting someone, perhaps his cult member, and girls in a party. They are all set to the Los Bravos tune "Bring a Little Lovin".
The ninth film by Quentin Tarantino, "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The actor happens to live next door to Sharon Tate, who is later tragically murdered by the followers of cult leader Manson. The Manson Family murders will serve as the backdrop of the story.
Lena Dunham, Dakota Fanning, Al Pacino, Austin Butler, Timothy Olyphant, Kurt Russell, James Marsden, Emile Hirsch, Maya Hawke, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Rumer Willis and Bruce Dern are in the star-studded cast. Also written by Tarantino, it is set to bow in U.S. theaters on July 26.
