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.
