Charles Manson is here to ruin the fun of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood's first trailer

No, the latest Once Upon A Time In Hollywood posters haven’t been much to look at, but the trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s latest is something to behold. Offering a zany, kaleidoscopic view of ‘60s-era la la land, the trim clip sets the amicable relationship between actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo Dicaprio) and stuntman Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) against the sunny pop of Los Bravos’ “Bring A Little Lovin’.”

Margot Robbie’s doomed Sharon Tate also surfaces, but her grinning, dancing star is quickly diminished by a grinning Charles Manson (Damon Herriman), who pops up for one quick, eerie frame. Also, Pitt does karate and DiCaprio does the best acting this little girl has ever seen in her life.
