When Does Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio’s New Movie Arrive in Theaters?
There’s nothing like a film featuring two mega-stars. Just think of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, or movies that featured Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. When the script, direction, and supporting cast are there, you can’t beat this type of production.
Looking at the past 30 years, it’s hard to find two bigger stars than Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. Whether due to budgetary constraints, timing or something else, these two have never appeared in a feature film together. But that’s about to change.
DiCaprio and Pitt joined Margot Robbie and several other stars — as well as a heavyweight writer-director — for the production of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which has already wrapped shooting. Here’s a look at the cast and crew as well as its summer 2019 release date.
Quentin Tarantino directs a cast that also includes Pacino, Margot Robbie, and Luke Perry.
Any Quentin Tarantino film is an event, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is likely to be as hyped as much as any film this year. Tarantino wrote the script and directed, as he’s done in his movies dating back to Reservoir Dogs.
In addition to Pitt and DiCaprio, Tarantino has Robbie playing Sharon Tate, the actress murdered by Charles Manson’s gang. DiCaprio plays Rick Dalton, a fictional actor whose star is fading in the Hollywood of the late-1960s; Pitt plays his stunt-double and friend.
That brief premise alone, along with the names of the lead actors and filmmaker, should be enough to get legions into the theater for this picture. However, there are many more names attached to the project.
‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ premieres July 26.
While Once Upon a Time may make its premiere in May at Cannes, its official U.S. release comes July 26. That should make waiting in line during its opening week bearable, at least.
Following the release of the Pitt-DiCaprio “poster,” Robbie shared her own on Instagram on March 19. You don’t have to be a costume designer to see they nailed the actress’s wardrobe for the film.
In addition to the stars already mentioned, Tarantino regulars Tim Roth and Michael Madsen also appear in the film. Other notable names include Lena Dunham, Emile Hirsch, and James Marsden.
Basically, everyone is in this film. However, even with the names stuffing the credits, Pitt and DiCaprio manage to outshine the rest of the cast (even Robbie).
We’ll see if the stars aligned to make their first feature together a winner — and whether Tarantino can hit the mark with another great picture set in L.A.
