She has already been nominated for one Oscar. And it certainly looks like Margot Robbie will be in the running to win one. The 28-year-old Australian actress already has many buzzing from her performance in just a short appearance in the first official full trailer for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood released Tuesday featuring fellow A-listers Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio.
The clip’s release coincided with Once Upon A Time In Hollywood being screened for the first time at the Cannes International Film Festival in France on Tuesday. Margot put on her best bubbly personality in the two-and-a-half minute clip as she portrays young actress Sharon Tate, who was later murdered by the Charles Manson Family.
The actress stole the trailer playing Tate who goes to the movies to watch herself in 1968 Dean Martin film The Wrecking Crew. She proudly tells the worker at the iconic The Fox Bruin Theater in Westwood, California ticketing booth window: ‘I’m Sharon Tate. I’m in the movie. That’s me. I play Miss Carlson, the klutz.’
One of the more interesting parts of the trailer was showing scenes of Sharon battling out with Bruce Lee (Mike Moh) who had actually trained and taught her martial arts so she could perform her own stunts in The Wrecking Crew. She is also shown in a pool at one point as she was only shown briefly in the first teaser released for the film back in March. Another actress who was featured in the clip was Lena Dunham who could be seen for the first time in her role as a Charles Manson Family member named Gypsy.
DiCaprio, 44, plays actor Rick Dalton while 55-year-old Pitt plays his longtime stunt double Rick Booth as the dynamic of their relationship is showcased a bit more. The two seem to be struggling with the changing Hollywood landscape as Booth later hangs out with notorious serial killer Manson and his ‘family.’At one point one of Manson’s followers nicknamed Pussycat (played by Margaret Qualley) holds hands with Gypsy (Dunham) as she tells the stuntman: ‘Charlie is really going to like you.’ The trailer starts with Dalton and Booth meeting with film producer Marvin Schwarzs (Al Pacino) who humorously mistakes Booth for Dalton’s son.
One of the biggest additions to the newer clip is Luke Perry who is seen for the first time in his final role. He died at age 52 on March 4, 2019 after suffering a massive stroke on February 27.
