Quentin Tarantino wants the premiere on Tuesday at the Cannes Film Festival of "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" to be a spoiler-free zone. The director went to Twitter on the eve of the red carpet debut to ask the media and others who attended the hot ticket event to avoid revealing too much about the film.

"I love movies, you love movies," Tarantino wrote on Instagram and Twitter. "It's the journey of discovering a story for the first time."
"The cast and crew have worked hard to create something original, and I just ask that everyone avoid revealing anything that prevents subsequent audiences from experiencing the movie in the same way," he added.
This image released by Sony Pictures shows Brad Pitt in Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time in Quentin." The film was announced as a late addition to the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday, May 2. It will be premiered at a competition at the next French festival, adding one of the most prominent and most anticipated summer films to the Cannes red carpet.
THE DROPS OF QUENTIN TARANTINO "ONCE IN THE HOLLYWOOD" TRAILERS
"Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" was established in the late 1960s and is said to include Charlie Manson and Sharon Tate as characters. It is not clear if Tarantino (who offended Hitler in "Inglourious Basterds" in a machine gun frenzy) will deviate from history while dealing with Manson's infamous murders. Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt play a movie star and his double, while Margot Robbie plays Sharon Tate. The film also stars Emile Hirsch, Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning and Kurt Russell.

Sony Pictures will release the image on July 26, 2019, approximately two months after the debut at Cannes, so it is understandable that Tarantino wants to keep some surprises in secret. We'll see if his Instagram launch shakes the tweeters of the audience.
