Quentin Tarantino's latest is heading back to theaters with ten minutes of previously unseen footage. As Variety reports, the Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt-starring Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which already ran at 161 minutes, is getting an extended cut, with four new scenes among the additional footage. The re-release will hit 1,000 theaters across the country on Oct. 25.
"Audiences have shown tremendous support for this movie, and we look forward to offering them another opportunity to see the film as it’s meant to be seen—in theaters on the big screen—with more sights and sounds of the sixties from Quentin Tarantino as an added treat," Sony's domestic distribution president said of the re-release.
This isn't the first time Tarantino has released an extended cut of one of his films, as he previously turned The Hateful Eight into a four-part miniseries for Netflix earlier this year with additional footage. It has not been revealed whether the extended cut of Once Upon a Time will make it to other markets later down the line. One country that won't get to see Tarantino's '60s comedy-drama full-stop, however, is China.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was released to critical and commercial success when it hit theaters in July, although some took issue with its portrayal of Bruce Lee. Sony Pictures put the Oct. 25 Chinese release of the film on hold after Lee's daughter Shannon filed a complaint to China's National Film Administration, although it was not confirmed if this was the core reason for the objection from Chinese censors.
Chinese film censorship is considerably harsher than it is in the States and Europe, which is why Tarantino had to re-cut Django Unchained for the Chinese market, editing out graphic violence and nudity. As he has final cut on his newest film, he has stood firm that he won't re-edit Once Upon a Time to appease censors.
