Quentin Tarantino’s second-highest-grossing film will now have four more scenes to his ninth movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The additional scene will add 10 minutes to the already lengthy two hours and forty-one-minute run-time. Most audience members will welcome the additional scenes. Sony is planning a re-release in approximately 1,500 theaters this Friday, October 25th, 2019, in what many Hollywood insiders are calling ‘a push’ for the upcoming awards season.
“Audiences have shown tremendous support for this movie, and we look forward to offering them another opportunity to see the film as it’s meant to be seen – in theaters on the big screen – with more sights and sounds of the sixties from Quentin Tarantino as an added treat,” said Adrian Smith, President of Domestic Distribution, Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group.
Tarantino has come under fire by the Bruce Lee Estate for his Once Upon A Time in Hollywood portrayal of the martial arts legend and leading man of the early 1970’s fight films, Fist of Fury and Way of the Dragon. Nevertheless, Tarantino remains true to his artistic vision despite repeated attempts at censorship from third parties, including the massive number of Chinese film exhibition screens popping up across the Communist country.
Look for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Re-Release starting this Friday at a theatre near you.
See you at the movies!
