The reissue with four additional scenes added in to the original film will hit 1,000+ locations in the U.S. and Canada starting tomorrow, Friday October 25th. Whether or not this version of the film makes it to cinemas in the UK is yet to be announced but we may well get the additional scenes as DVD extras if we don't see them on the big screen.
“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.
According to Sony "Following its triumphant world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood has shown incredible staying power at the U.S. and Canadian box office. The film opened in North America to a $41.075 million weekend – a win for originality and a record opening weekend for Tarantino. It crossed $100 million domestically August 11th becoming the only original film this summer to do so. The film is Tarantino’s second-highest-grossing film worldwide."
Written and Directed by Quentin Tarantino, Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth film from the writer-director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age. Produced by David Heyman, Shannon McIntosh and Quentin Tarantino. Georgia Kacandes, YU Dong and Jeffrey Chan serve as executive producers. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and Al Pacino.
