If you happened to see the poster for 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood', there's no denying that it left a lot to be desired.
When you think back to the now-iconic artwork for the likes of 'Pulp Fiction' or 'Jackie Brown', the poster everyone saw a couple of months looked bland as shit, quite frankly. At any rate, the fake posters made for Leonardo DiCaprio's character, Rick Dalton, are far better.
The movie follows Dalton, now an aging actor, as he ponders a move to Italy with his stunt double and friend, Cliff Booth, played by Brad Pitt. The two posters look vaguely familiar, and were no doubt inspired by real Italian movies like 'A Fistful of Dollars' or 'A Special Cop In Action'.

The movie has its world premiere at Cannes tomorrow afternoon, with online reactions and reviews likely to arrive later that day. The Cannes premiere comes as 'Pulp Fiction' had its own Cannes premiere 25 years ago last weekend.
'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood' arrives in Irish cinemas on August 14th.
