Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood releases July, and today expectant moviegoers finally get a glimpse of what they’re in for.
Quentin Tarantino’s cinematic repertoire is loaded with meta references from Hollywood’s history, with films like The Hateful Eight, Kill Bill, and Pulp Fiction paying homage to the movies that came before them. For his next film, the director is going straight to the source with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which follows a TV actor and his stunt double as they try to make a name for themselves around the time of the Manson murders in 1969.
The first trailer for the film, which debuted this morning, introduces Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), a washed-up actor known for a television Western, and Dalton’s best friend and stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). The trailer shows scenes from 1960s LA along with Tarantino-esque dialogue as well as some breaking of the fourth wall. The film also stars Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, Tim Roth, Kurt Russell, and Timothy Olyphant.

The film is one of the most anticipated of the year—and will potentially be Tarantino’s second last. The mastermind behind Pulp Fiction, and Inglourious Basterds said at the International Jerusalem Film Festival in 2016 that he planned to retire after his tenth film.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will premier at the Cannes film festival in May, and is slated to hit theaters July 26.
