Leonardo DiCaprio’s Upcoming Movie About Charles Mansion Gets A Major Change
The upcoming movie about Charles Manson with Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio has a new release date.
The Hollywood Reporter reported the following late Wednesday:
Quentin Tarantino’s high-profile Charles Manson movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, has moved its release date up by two weeks to July 26, 2019.
Sony originally slated the film, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, to open Aug. 9, 2019, which will mark the 50th anniversary of the murders of Sharon Tate and her friends by Manson followers.
Studio insiders say the date wasn’t changed because of the anniversary; rather, they say going out in late July gives the film more summer playtime. Nevertheless, shifting the date avoids having to contend with the actual anniversary.
Yeah, I’m going to go ahead and say this is reasonable. I’m not sure I’m buying the part about the change having nothing to do with the anniversary of Sharon Tate’s horrific murder. I don’t think I’m buying that at all. (RELATED: TAKE A LOOK AT BRAD PITT AND LEONARDO DICAPRIO IN THE UPCOMING CHARLES MANSON FILM)
It seems a bit unnecessary and inappropriate to release a fictional movie about Charles Manson and his cult on the anniversary of the murders that rocked America.
Outside of changing the release date, I am still super excited for this movie. Anything that involves Quentin Tarantino, Pitt and DiCaprio is bound to be outstanding. Plus, when is the last time we had a great movie that involved the Manson murders? Has that literally ever happened? I don’t think so.

You can bet every dollar you have I’ll be catching “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” when it’s released July 26, 2019.
