Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Re-release Is Here
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood staring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, re-release
Leonardo DiCaprio starer, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, was originally released back in July 2019. The movie did quite well at the box office. But the director, Quentin Tarantino, thinks he can rake in some more bucks with a re-release. Thus, the film hit the theaters again with an added footage of ten minutes to an already 2 hour and 41 minute long flick.
The new version of the film released in about a thousand theaters across North America on October 25th, according to Variety.

The movie has done quite well for itself. Grossing over $375 million according to some recent stats.
This figure doesn’t include profits from China though. China banned the movie due to some controversy surrounding the Bruce Lee scene. Tarantino doesn’t seem moved by the whole situation. He is not willing to alter anything to please the Chines censors, and would rather re-release Once Upon a Time in Hollywood somewhere else.
Sony’s Adrian Smith, jumped in support of Tarantino:
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.
We get to See More of our Favourite Stars
The re-release comes with four new scenes spread across, adding up to 10 minutes of new footage. This means we get to see more of our favorite stars, Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie, in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
It is not the first instance Tarantino has re-released a flick with an added footage. The extended version of Netflix-exclusive, The Hateful Eight, is a recent example, which clocked in at 3 hours and 30 minutes as opposed to the 2 hour and 48 minute original version.
It’s also now available to stream on Amazon Prime.
