Leonardo DiCaprio’s new movie, Once Upon a Time In Hollywood, sets in 1969 in the entertainment capital of the world, Los Angeles. Quentin Tarantino directs it. It follows a tv star named Rick Dalton portrayed by Leonardo and a stunt double make their way around an industry that they hardly recognize anymore.
Today Sony released the first trailer promoting the movie and first thing I notice is that Leanordo portrays the same persona that he did in Great Gatsby. However, this time, Leo plays a struggling actor, which is a bit ironic. There are guns (props), sex, partying, and drinking. It is hard not to make any connection with The Great Gatsby film, but this new movie is not a sequel to it.
Once Upon a Time In Hollywood releases in theaters on 26th July 2019.
