Leonardo DiCaprio shared the first poster for Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood . It features his character, TV star Rick Dalton, standing in front of the Hollywood Hills besides Brad Pitt's Cliff Booth, his stunt double. The Twitter caption for the poster simply reads “Hollywood. 1969.” The trailer for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is expected to arrive sometime this week.

The late screen icon Burt Reynolds was also due to star in the movie as George Spahn - the American rancher whose land was taken over by Manson - but he passed away after suffering a heart attack in September and didn’t get to film any scenes. Bruce Dern replaced Reynolds in the role.
"The Great Gatsby." According to Tom Breen, the owner of property "Breenhold" in the Blue Mountains where a lot of filming took place, there was a huge stuff-up on set by a "private weather guru" who was hired by Baz Luhrmann. Mr Breen claims that on a beautiful spring day, the crew purchased 100,000 litres of water from one of the dams to create the synthetic rain needed for the scene where a nervous Gatsby has Nick Carroway invite Daisy over for tea. It rained for the next 3 days.
