After a lot of speculations surrounding the world premiere of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, it’s been confirmed that Quentin Tarantino’s latest film is coming to the Cannes Film Festival.
The festival’s director, Thierry Frémaux, announced the news in an official press release, and it was clear he couldn’t be more delighted to welcome Tarantino back.
“We were afraid the film would not be ready, as it wouldn’t be released until late July, but Quentin Tarantino, who has not left the editing room in four months, is a real, loyal and punctual child of Cannes,” said Frémaux.
This prestigious festival holds a special place in Tarantino’s heart, and it’s the most fitting spot for the world premiere of his latest film. After all, Cannes was the place where he won Palme d’Or for his cult classic Pulp Fiction exactly 25 years ago.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will also be a part of the main competition, but regular movie-goers will have to wait until July 26 to see it in the theaters. The star-studded cast of this epic includes the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie.
