Jesus Christ, that Photoshop work is egregious.
That's what fiction is for. It's for getting at the truth when the truth isn't sufficient for the truth.

Yeah, it's bad, but hopefully just a placeholder for better things to come. Have the ad campaigns for any of QT's films ever been notably beautiful though? I can only recall (without searching Google) rather unoffensive but still sorta standard-looking promos for most of his shit.

EDIT: just checked out the teaser posters for his last 4 films: all brilliant. WTF is up with this shit?

There's nothing wrong with loving something you can't hold in your hand
You're sitting on the edge of the bed, smoking and shaking your head
Well there's nothing wrong with loving things that cannot even stand
Well there goes your moony man
With his suitcase in his hand
Every road is lined with animals
That rise from their blood and walk
Well the moon won't get a wink of sleep
If I stay all night and talk

The possibilities are endless, still they went for this generic looking shit? Of all the things they could have made, this is what they decided on? What's going on with Brad Pitt's face/hair?

Tarantino's movies has surprisingly bad posters in general. I guess the last great one was Death Proof?

It's just a teaser poster, but for a movie that huge it's weird that they let an intern make it during his/her lunch break.

I can't believe the new Quentin Tarantino movie is a secret Netflix Adam Sandler flick!

It's outrageous, egregious, preposterous!

That's Once Upon a Time in...Hollywood, My Boy! The 9th film from Quentin Tarantino.

You think his next film will be promoted as the "The LAST film from Quentin Tarantino"? I mean, he has been putting that "the -th" film on the posters since Kill Bill and hyped the "only 10 films" for years now.

It will be interesting to see what he believes to be a worthwhile swan song in his filmography. I could see him wanting to do a trilogy with either Kill Bill or a third western, but at the same time that would be kind of underwhelming imo. He'll probably make TV shows after he's done making movies and I would rather see a Kill Bill TV show at some point.

He'll recognize that making underwhelming films late in your career is also the sign of a great filmaker.

So The Vega Brothers starring John Travolta and Michael Madsen or Cowgirls in Sweden it is!

Why does he have Ridley Scott operating a boom mic?

I really hope so, and then when he inevitably caves and makes an 11th, he can bill it on screen as The 2nd 1st Film From Quentin Tarantino

What if he goes under a pseudonym as some hot new director and we donít find out until 20 years later?
Ever have a feeling and you donít know why?
