Tarantino Teases Extended Version of “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”

Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in "Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood"

Quentin Tarantino might be walking away with his third Golden Globe on Sunday night for his Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. 

The ninth film by the famous director has received rave reviews for its depiction of Hollywood during the ‘60s and the life of a television actor who may have passed his sell-by date. When it debuted at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, the feature received a standing ovation from critics and won the Palm Dog Award. 

The film is not short by any means, clocking in at 161 minutes. Tarantino claimed that the original version was initially longer and that cuts took place fairly close to the film’s premiere date. It was announced in October that the movie would be re-released with an additional 10 minutes of footage. 

Diehard Tarantino fans have been wondering, however, whether they would ever get to see Once Upon a Time in Hollywood in its entirety, the way the filmmaker initially envisioned, and he has now given us an answer. 

“Maybe in a year’s time, we probably will,” he said at a special screening of the film at ArcLight Hollywood. 

Rumor has it that version is over four hours long. Best have a lot of popcorn.
