The teaser hones in on TV actor Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt) as they navigate the end of the golden age of Hollywood.

"Sony Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for ", the ninth feature from Oscar victor Tarantino that promises to be the director's penultimate movie should he stick to his plan of retiring after his tenth movie.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood stars Leonardo DiCaprio as a fictional actor, alongside actual stars Al Pacino, Kurt Russell and the late Burt Reynolds. The pair live next door to actress and model Sharon Tate (portrayed by Margot Robbie) and her husband, director Roman Polanski (Rafal Zawierucha).

With all due respect to Thanos and the gang in Avengers: Endgame, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is the most star-studded film of the year. They share some banter, Cliff kung-fu fights with Bruce Lee (Mike Moh) and Rick does a little cheesy TV show host dance. That meeting is also an opportunity for some vintage Tarantino quips: when Lee points out that his hands are registered as "lethal weapons" because he could go to jail if he accidentally struck Booth and killed him.

Admitting guilt is 'non-starter' for Kraft in solicitation case
Jack Goldberger, a lawyer representing Kraft in the case, did not immediately respond to requests for comment Wednesday afternoon. Kraft has denied taking part in any illegal activity - and that admission is likely the primary reason he will decline the deal.

On 21 May it will be 25 years since Pulp Fiction premiered at the Cannes film festival, before winning the Palme d'Or.

We then see several first glimpses at other stars of the film, including Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate and Damon Herriman as Charles Manson, the two real-life figures who gave Once Upon a Time in Hollywood its initial push.

Obviously the song is appropriate to the late '60s L.A. setting of the film, but the title also relates to the story of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood in at least a few ways.
