Once Upon a Time In Hollywood - Trailer

The first trailer for Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood has been released.

Starring a bustling ensemble that includes Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie, the director's ninth feature is set to be a landmark entry into his filmography - a period piece exploring hippie culture and the Hollywood studio system in late 1960s Los Angeles around the time of the infamous Manson Family Murders.

Tarantino, whose most recent film was The Hateful Eight, worked on the film's script for five years and is reportedly hurrying to get the film ready in time for this year's Cannes Film Festival, which begins in May.

Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood will follow a faded TV actor (DiCaprio) and his stunt double (Pitt) who strive to achieve fame and success in the film industry.

Other stars to appear in the film include Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning, Damien Lewis, Lena Dunham and Bruce Dern. Burt Reynolds and Luke Perry will appear in the film posthumously.

Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood will be released in the UK on 14 August.
