When the first posters for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood dropped online, they didn’t inspire much confidence for emulating the 1960s glamor that Quentin Tarantino’s film would supposedly capture. Appearing to be lazily Photoshopped images of stars Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Margot Robbie leaning against a lot of cars, sometimes with the Hollywood sign in the background, those posters quickly became the target of much mockery.
But then a vintage-inspired one-sheet by in-demand poster artist Steven Chorney, an ’80s artist best known for his poster for 1986’s Labyrinth, put all those concerns to bed. Chorney’s vibrant, eye-catching poster would soon prove to be the standard by which the following real and fake posters for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood would be held. And if you’ve seen the film, you may have noticed somet of these Once Upon a Time in Hollywood fake movie posters all featuring DiCaprio’s washed-up actor Rick Dalton.
