Once Upon A Time In Hollywood's trailer sees Sharon go to watch herself in 1968 Dean Martin film The Wrecking Crew. "In so doing, Tarantino lets us access some of the love he so ardently wants us to feel for all his cherished arcana".

Fans of Tarantino came to his aid, bringing up the fact that he's had films dominated by female leads, including "Kill Bill: Volume 1", "Kill Bill: Volume 2" and "Jackie Brown".
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is slated for a United Kingdom release on August 14.

Tarantino was made a free agent in Hollywood after the downfall of his regular producer, Harvey Weinstein. "And I've never done that before and now I know why: I was waiting for the flawless girl".
