Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ In-Movie Poster Features Leonardo DiCaprio

Quentin Tarantino’s next film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is set in 1969.
Academy Award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio leads the cast as Rick Dalton, a mildly famous TV actor who’s having trouble transitioning into movies. In a new poster released for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, we actually get a look at a poster for a movie within the movie, the Rick Dalton vehicle Operazione Dyn-O-Mite!. It looks incredibly silly and completely believable.

This is the first of what I hope are many marketing materials that offer a look into the world of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which co-stars Brad Pitt as Dalton’s easy-going stunt man Cliff. We know that Tarantino is a fan of loading his films up with in-universe Easter Eggs, like Red Apple cigarettes that appear in multiple Tarantino films or even references to characters from different films. With Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Tarantino gets to create his own little fictional Hollywood universe.


The film opens in theaters on July 26th and also stars Timothy OlyphantScoot McNairyDamian LewisLuke PerryDakota FanningJames MarsdenClifton CollinsKeith JeffersonEmile HirschTim RothMichael MadsenDanny StrongSydney SweeneyClu GulagerJames Landry HébertMikey MadisonAl Pacino, Lena Dunham, Maya Hawke, and Nicholas Hammond, among others.
