It’s kinda funny how a random piece of news can make me feel differently depending on who it’s about. For example, if I’d heard that any other filmmaker in the world would be premiering the latest movie at the Cannes Film Festival, I’d pretty much be like, “Awesome, okay, good for them.” However, because it has to do with Quentin Tarantino, I mostly find myself kind of rolling my eyes at the whole deal.
Perhaps it has to do with the sort of elitism the festival finds itself promoting (Netflix is sitting out this year thanks to annoying restrictions), and the fact that Tarantino often finds himself at the front of such elitism. Regardless, his latest movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is headed to the aforementioned festival, as reported by THR.
And, little annoying opinions aside, it’s still pretty cool news, as it will be showing on May 22, 2019 — 25 years to the day since Pulp Fiction premiered at the same festival. The landmark movie would go on to win the legendary Palme d’Or, which would really catapult the filmmaker to the next level of fame. And, to his credit, Tarantino has managed to hang onto to that fame due to his consistently high-quality movies.
“I’ve been working on this script for five years, as well as living in Los Angeles County most of my life, including in 1969, when I was 7 years old,” Tarantino has said to the outlet. “I’m very excited to tell this story of an L.A. and a Hollywood that don’t exist anymore. And I couldn’t be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio and Pitt as Rick and Cliff.”
