Tarantino's ninth film is centred on Rick Dalton, a TV actor wracked by self-doubt, played by DiCaprio.

Dalton and stunt double Cliff Booth, played by Pitt, roam the studios of Hollywood in the late 1960s, pondering their careers and getting into scraps, running into hippies and martial arts stars.

Ominously, however, it also takes place in the run-up to the notorious Mason murders - the gruesome killings orchestrated by cult leader Charles Manson, which claimed the life of pregnant actress Sharon Tate, married at the time to filmmaker Roman Polanski.

Among the films high-profile cast are Margot Robbie, who plays Tate, Bruce Dern, Timothy Olyphant, Rumer Willis and Maya Hawke, the daughter of actors Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, who appeared in Tarantino's 'Pulp Fiction' and 'Kill Bill'.

The film's evocative atmosphere, flashes of violence that Tarantino is known for, and darkly comic moments elicited some early rave reviews following the film's premiere in Cannes.

'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' opens in U.S. theaters on July 26.
