If there wasn’t enough happening already on India’s Independence Day, aka August 15 then we now have Quentin Tarantino’s ninth directorial ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ out in the theatres on that day.

Sony Pictures Entertainment made the announcement on Tuesday. Watch trailer here. 

The studio aparently decided on the August 15 date after Prabhas-starrer ‘Saaho’ moved to August 30.

‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ will now be competing against Akshay Kumar’s ‘Mission Mangal’ and John Abraham’s ‘Batla House’. The second season of hit Netflix show ‘Sacred Games’ will also release on August 15.

The film is led by superstars Leornado DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, and is based on the murder of actor Sharon Tate and three others at the hands of the Manson Family cult. 

It features DiCaprio, 44, as Rick Dalton, an ageing, out-of-work actor, with Pitt, 55, playing his longtime stunt double named Cliff Booth. The two characters happen to be the neighbours of Tate, essayed by Margot Robbie in the film.

We will also see Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning, Damian Lewis, Bruce Dern, Emile Hirsch and the late Luke Perry in the film.

It is slated to be released in the US on July 26.
