Once Upon a Time in Hollywood got Extended
Quentin Tarantino's latest film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, celebrated its world premiere in Cannes in 2019 and was shown in a preliminary cut that lasts about 159 minutes. Even then, Tarantino hinted that it might be able that he revises the film a little before its regular release. This has happened. Extended by 2 minutes, the film with Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt now has a running time of 161 minutes. The director justifies the changes with the fact that films in Cannes are often a bit too long (see also Apocalype Now) and he wanted to be on the safe side. If not optimal due to lack of time, then it's better to be too short than too long.
In an interview with Deadline, the director has now revealed what has changed since the Cannes premiere. There are two important additions. First, there is the scene from the Steve McQueen movie The Great Escape, in which it's not McQueen who has the leading role, but DiCaprio's character Rick Dalton. The scene required special effects that weren't ready for Cannes. Also extended was a scene with Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate as she’s taking up a hitchhiker in Westwood. However, at the very end of the post-production Tarantino removed two short, unspecified scenes that were shown back in Cannes.
