Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Margot Robbie have officially begun promoting their upcoming film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and things look to be off to a fun start. On Thursday, the trio linked up with director Quentin Tarantino for a photocall at the Four Seasons Hotel in LA, where they posed for pictures on a makeshift movie set. At least, Margot sure tried to pose for photos on a makeshift movie set, but her costar had other ideas. Brad was seen flying through the air (with the greatest of ease!) while the actress – who portrays Sharon Tate in the film – laughed in the background. For the record, Leo wasn’t safe from a photobomb from Mr. Pitt, either.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood follows a TV actor (DiCaprio) and his stunt double (Pitt) as they navigate Los Angeles during the infamous Manson Family murders in August 1969. “It takes place at the height of the counter-culture explosion, at the height of the hippie revolution, and at the height of a new Hollywood,” Quentin Tarantino explained. Keep reading to see Brad’s impressive photobombing efforts, and stay tuned for more fun promo moments ahead of OUATIH’s July 26 release.

The writer-director makes a two-and-a-half-hour appearance on the latest episode of the Pure Cinema Podcast to discuss upcoming screenings at Los Angeles’ New Beverly Cinema, which Tarantino owns and programs. The films talked about include his latest offering, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, with Tarantino teasing some of the real-life actors who inspired its lead characters.

“Brad came over to the house,” says Tarantino. “He brought something he wanted to watch with me, and he hadn’t seen it in a long time, but he was thinking that this could be a good starting place… for his character, Cliff. He pulls out a DVD of Billy Jack and he went, ‘I was thinking maybe Tom Laughlin, maybe we should watch Billy Jack and think about that.’ And I go, ‘Brad, I have a 35 mm print of Billy Jack, threaded up on the projector, waiting for you to get here.’ He couldn’t believe that we both were thinking of Billy Jack — and more Tom Laughlin.”

“Hold on,” says Pitt. We’re speaking over the phone, as he makes his way home in LA and some guy – a guy who’s about to have a story he can dine out on for years – is blocking traffic.

“What are you doing?” asks Pitt, giving the horn a couple of short pumps. Then two more, longer this time.

“Oh you know, I’m just taking care of business,” he says, when we ask what the reaction is to Brad Pitt honking someone on a sunny LA afternoon. “But he might have a story that Brad Pitt just honked at him, and said to get the fuck out of the way.”

Pitt is a star in a way that few Hollywood actors are. Not just famous but such a part of the culture that it feels surreal anyone could cross paths with him in the regular world of supermarkets and grocery aisles, or even on the road. He’s a star in the way they used to make them in Hollywood.

Speaking on behalf of Quentin Tarantino, as well as the dynamic between the cast and crew, Brad Pitt told FAB TV:

“First of all, his set, it’s just a joy. He loves cinema so much, as you know, and loves talking about it…There’s a great verve and energy on the set; it’s unlike any others. And then working together [referencing the whole crew] it was just real automatic for us. I can’t describe it more than that. It was just really easy and a good laugh. We came on the scene around the same time. We have a lot of the same references, and we all know the same people. He’s just really giving and generous. You see that in the film.”

“I want to thank the jury from the bottom of my black heart,” the director said when collecting the prize on behalf of the pooch named Brandy.

Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has claimed its first award.

The darkly comic film — starring Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie — had its world premiere in Cannes on Tuesday, where it was well-received by critics. But the movie’s first honor was not for the A-list lineup or legendary director, but instead for a four-legged member of the star-studded cast.

Brandy plays the pit bull pet of Pitt’s character, Cliff Booth — an animal with some considerable screen time who plays a crucial role in at least one scene. She won the Palm Dog award for the best performance by a canine in a film.

Although Brandy didn’t make it to the south of France, Tarantino himself caused a stir when he unexpectedly turned up to the awards ceremony on Friday to collect the dog collar prize.

“I want to thank the jury from the bottom of my black heart,” he said. “At least I don’t go home empty-handed.”

CANNES – Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” had a paparazzi-worthy reception last night with many highlighting it as his best film since “Kill Bill.” After a night of celebrating, Tarantino was joined by his stars Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt for the official Cannes press conference. And it’s not every day you have two of the world’s biggest movie stars sitting on a dais together.

“There were incredible ease and comfort getting to work alongside Brad,” DiCaprio says. “We kind of grew up in the generation, got our start around the same time. And, to be honest, Quentin gave us this incredible back story for our characters. He literally came to us with a bible of their work together, their friendship together, what they have been through the industry, how they are now on the outskirts in this new era of Hollywood. And all that sort of fed into this immediate comfort and ease that think he and I had with each other. I mean, look, Brad not only a terrific actor, but he’s also a professional. So, when Quentin puts you in these improvised scenarios and we both sort of have a great foothold on our history and our characters I have to say it was incredibly easy. Incredibly easy working with Brad and I think we forged a great cinematic bond in a film about our industry together.”

“I had a great laugh with him,” Pitt adds. “It’s that thing knowing you have the best of the best on the opposite side of the table holding up the scene with you. There is a great relief in that. As Leo said, We have the same reference points. We have been going through this at the same time. Similar experiences to laugh about it. I hope we do it again, it was great fun.”
