Quentin Tarantino on Monday released a statement asking for those attending the Cannes Film Festival world premiere of his latest, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, to avoid spoilers.
The Pulp Fiction director posted the missive on Twitter and Instagram, a day ahead of the film’s debut in Cannes, asking that audience members not reveal spoilers about his new movie Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, which launches tomorrow on the Croisette. In a typed letter, he wrote: “I only ask that everyone avoids revealing anything that would prevent later audiences from experiencing the film in the same way.”
It is unclear what exactly Tarantino is referring to given that the film, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, is shrouded in mystery. The film is known to chronicle the time around the Charles Manson murders in 1969, with Robbie playing victim Sharon Tate. But it is unknown how the auteur handles the famed killing.
There’s little question that Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood is one of the most anticipated films ever to debut at Cannes given Tarantino’s rousing Pulp Fiction bow in 1994 and his almost mythic status here with the French.
In making his no-spoilers request (see tweet below), Tarantino wrote, “I love Cinema. You love Cinema. It’s the journey of discovering a story for the first time. I’m thrilled to be here in Cannes to share Once Upon A Time…in Hollywood with the festival audience. The cast and crew have worked hard to create something original.”
