Quentin Tarantino on New Movie with Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt & Margot Robbie


HOW ARE YOU DOING?>>REALLY GOOD.>>Jimmy: THIS IS YOUR BIG NIGHT. THIS IS AN EXCITING NIGHT AFTER ALL THE WORK YOU SHOW IT TO PEOPLE.>>I AGREE. IT’S ACTUALLY EVEN KIND OF COOL COMING ON THE SHOW WITH A TUXEDO. BECAUSE I’M GOING TO A PREMIERE. IT REMINDS ME OF LIKE WATCHING LIKE THE JOEY BISHOP SHOW WHEN I WAS A KID AND LIKE ERNEST BORGNINE WOULD BE ON IN A TUXEDO, OH I’M GOING TO THE TOWERING ININFERNO PREMIERE IN ABOUT TWO HOURS. OKAY, GREAT, ERNIE. I REMEMBER WATCHING THEM, I WANT TO GO TO THE “TOWERING INFERNO” PREMIERE.>>Jimmy: NOW YOU GET TO GO. YOU WERE KIND ENOUGH TO GIVE US OUR STAFF, ME, ET CETERA, A SNEAK PREVIEW OF THE MOVIE ON FRIDAY NIGHT.>>YEAH.>>Jimmy: AND YOU ARE A NUT. AND I’M GOING TO TELL YOU WHY YOU’RE A NUT. [ LAUGHTER ]>>I’M CURIOUS TO HEAR THIS.>>Jimmy: ABOUT HALF AN HOUR INTO THE MOVIE I TURN AROUND AND THERE YOU ARE SITTING BEHIND ME.>>I DID NOT REALIZE THAT. I FOUND THAT OUT TODAY. I DID NOT KNOW YOU WERE IN FRONT OF ME.>>Jimmy: YOU DIDN’T.>>I HAD NO IDEA.>>Jimmy: BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW IF YOU REMEMBER BUT WHEN “KILL BILL” WAS OUT — >>OF COURSE I REMEMBER THAT, WHEN WE WALKED THROUGH THE WHOLE AUDIENCE.>>Jimmy: YEAH. BUT ALSO YOU WAITED IN THE LOBBY TO MAKE SURE I DIDN’T — YOU WANTED TO CATCH ME IF I SNUCK OUT OF THE MOVIE. AND THEN I SEE YOU BEHIND ME, OH, GOD, I CAN’T GO TO THE BATHROOM NOW.>>RIGHT. EXACTLY. JIMMY, YOU’RE GOING TO THE BATHROOM NOW? IT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT SCENE. YOU WON’T UNDERSTAND ANYTHING.>>Jimmy: EVERYONE WAS NERVOUS. I DIDN’T WANT TO TURN AROUND TO SEE IF YOU WERE STILL THERE. BUT PEOPLE STOPPED EATING POPCORN BECAUSE THEY WERE WORRIED YOU MIGHT GET OFFENDED THEY WERE EATING DURING THE MOVIE. AS IF THAT MAKES ANY SENSE AT ALL.>>IT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE. BUT BY THE WAY, THE THING THAT’S KIND OF FUNNY ABOUT THAT IS YOU PROBABLY HEARD ME LAUGHING THE LOUDEST AT THE MOST INAPPROPRIATE MOMENTS.>>Jimmy: DESPITE YOUR ATTEMPTS TO ZAKT US AND RUIN THE FILM FOR US WE ALL LOVED THE MOVIE. IT’S REALLY GREAT.>>THANK YOU SO MUCH.>>Jimmy: AND PEOPLE WILL UNDERSTAND WHEN THEY SEE IT. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] YOU CLOSED DOWN HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD. FOR HOW MANY NIGHTS IN A ROW?>>GOSH. I THINK WE DID IT — IT WAS ACTUALLY A SITUATION, I THINK WE HAD IT FOR TWO NIGHTS GOING ONE WAY AND THEN ABOUT THREE MONTHS LATER TWO NIGHTS GOING THE OTHER WAY.>>Jimmy: AND HOW DOES IT THIS MAKE YOU FEEL WHEN THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS STREETS IN THE WORLD, YOU’RE ABLE TO SHUT IT DOWN FOR YOUR OWN MOVIE?>>THAT WAS KIND OF AMAZING, FRANKLY, TO — NOT ONLY — SHUTTING IT DOWN, YOU KNOW, THAT’S ITS OWN THING. THAT’S REALLY COOL. BUT TO SHUT IT DOWN AND TURN IT BACK INTO THE HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD OF MY — LITERALLY OF MY 6-YEAR-OLD CHILDHOOD WHEN I BARELY REMEMBER BUT I REMEMBER IT NEVERTHELESS, AND TO CREATE ALL THAT AND LITERALLY JUST HAVE IT — THE THEATERS ARE ALL APPARENTLY OPENED AND BLAZING. IT WAS KIND OF AMAZING. AND THEN JUST THE ONE MOMENT THAT WAS KIND OF CRAZY, WE WERE SHOOTING BRAD DRIVING DOWN HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD. AND YOU START, YOU KNOW, GATHERING — IT HAPPENS ALL NIGHT LONG. BYSTANDERS WHO ARE JUST WATCHING. SO THIS IS BEHIND THE BARRICADES AND THEY’RE WATCHING THE WHOLE THING. TOTALLY GREAT. WELL, ONE OF THE BYSTANDERS WAS THE AQUAMAN WHO STANDS IN FRONT OF THE CHINESE THEATER. [ LAUGHTER ] NOT THE AQUAMAN FROM WHAT I REMEMBER BUT YOU KNOW, THE JASON MOMOA. SO HE’S GOT THE WHOLE HAIR GOING ON AND THE TATTOOS. AND HE’S STANDING THERE WITH A TRITON. AND JUST STANDING THERE. BOOM. HE’S AQUAMAN. ALL RIGHT? AND WE WERE LIKE AQUAMAN’S WATCHING US. AND WE WERE TRYING NOT TO LOOK AT HIM BUT YOU CANNOT NOT LOOK AT HIM. SO I KEPT SNEAKING LOOKS TO AQUAMAN AS I’M DIRECTING.>>Jimmy: IT WOULD HAVE PROBABLY BEEN WEIRD IF AQUAMAN SHOWED UP IN THE THING. I ALSO LOVE THAT — AND I DON’T WANT TO GIVE ANYTHING AWAY. SO I’M NERVOUS ABOUT EVEN SAYING ANYTHING. BUT YOU’RE — YOU JUST HAVE YOUR OWN VERSION OF HISTORY. LIKE WELL, LOOK, IN YOUR VERSION OF HISTORY HITLER GOT — >>WHACKED OUT IN A MOVIE THEATER.>>Jimmy: HE WAS BURNED IN A MOVIE THEATER.>>AND PEOPLE ARE LIKE CAN YOU DO THAT? I GO, I GUESS I CAN. I JUST DID IT.>>Jimmy: I DON’T THINK ANYBODY ELSE, THOUGH, WOULD EVER EVEN THINK TO CHANGE HISTORY. AND IN THIS MOVIE THAT’S SOMETHING THAT HAPPENS.>>WELL, YOU KNOW, OKAY, A WAY TO KIND OF DEAL WITH THAT, INTERESTING KIND OF WAY, IS THE FACT THAT WHEN IT CAME TO “INGLORIOUS BASTERDS” AND I’M WRITING THE SEQUENCE AND EVERYTHING’S GOING RIGHT, THE BASTERDS HAVE TAKEN OVER THE THEATER AND IT SEEMS LIKE IT’S GOING TO GO GOOD. NOW I’VE GOT TO FIGURE OUT WHAT AM I GOING TO DO ABOUT HIT SFLER BECAUSE I HADN’T FIGURED THAT OUT YET. [ LAUGHTER ]>>Jimmy: WHO AMONG US HASN’T HAD THAT THOUGHT?>>WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT HITLER?>>Jimmy: THIS GUY’S A PROBLEM.>>BYE-BYE BIRDIE SONG. [ APPLAUSE ] SO THE THING IS, THOUGH, I WAS LIKE I DON’T WANT IT TO BE A DOUBLE. THAT’S ALWAYS A BUMMER WHENEVER THAT HAPPENS IN A MOVIE. I’VE SEEN THAT BEFORE. AND I DON’T WANT IT TO BE — OH, THEY SNEAK HIM OUT OF THE BACK AND STUFF. SO I GO WHAT AM I GOING TO DO? IT’S LIKE 4:00 IN THE MORNING. I’M WRITING BY MYSELF. AND THEN I FINALLY DECIDE, JUST KILL HIM. ALL RIGHT? AND SO I TOOK A PIECE OF PAPER AND I JUST WROTE ON IT, “JUST F-ING KILL HIM.” ALL RIGHT? AND I PUT IT BY MY BEDSIDE TABLE AND WENT TO BED. AND THEN WHEN I WOKE UP THE NEXT MORNING I FIGURED I WOULD LOOK AT THE PIECE OF PAPER AND REALIZE WAS IT A GOOD IDEA OR A BAD IDEA? AFTER I HAD A NIGHT’S SLEEP AND I READ IT AND I GO IT’S A GREAT IDEA! [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: AND IT WAS. AND THIS MOVIE IS WHAT I THINK WE CAN SAY IS THAT LEO PLAYS A STAR.>>YEAH, HE’S A STAR LIKE DURING THE TIME OF THE LATE ’50s, EARLY ’60s, HAD A TV SHOW CALLED “BOUNTY LAW.” HE’S A BOUNTY HUNTER IN IT. AND IT WAS A VERY POPULAR TV SHOW AT THE TIME. AND IT WAS POPULAR ENOUGH THAT WHEN THE SHOW WENT OFF THE AIR HE COULD LIKE DO MOVIES AND GO ON. BUT HE DID OKAY BUT THE WHOLE MOVIE STAR TRANSITION FROM TV TO MOVIES DIDN’T QUITE WORK FOR HIM. AND SO NOW IT’S 1969 AND THE WHOLE CULTURE HAS CHANGED. THE ENTIRE ZEITGEIST HAS CHANGED. HIS ENTIRE CAREER’S BEEN RUNNING POCKET COMBS THROUGH HIS POMPADOURS AND NOW IT’S ALL LONG HAIRED ANDROGYNOUS HIPPIE TYPES. AND NOW HE’S PLAYING BAD GUYS ON OTHER PEOPLE’S TV SHOWS. SO THAT’S HIS SITUATION. SO HIS STOCK IS GOING DOWN. NEVERTHELESS, HE LIVES NEXT DOOR TO SHARON TATE AND ROMAN POLANSKI, WHOSE STOCK IS GOING STRAIGHT UP. AND THEY ALMOST REPRESENT THIS NEW HIPPIE ERA OF HOLLYWOOD. AND HE’S KIND OF TRAPPED ON THE OUTSIDE. AND IT’S SORT OF FOLLOWING THEIR CHARACTERS.>>Jimmy: AND WE ALL KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO SHARON TATE. VERY SADLY.>>AND THAT’S A BIG PART OF IT. YEAH.>>Jimmy: I HAVE TO SAY, I THINK FOR GUYS OUR AGE THIS IS ABOUT AS GOOD AS IT GETS. THIS IS A “MAD” MAGAZINE PARODYING THE SHOW THAT DIDN’T ACTUALLY EXIST BUT DOES EXIST IN YOUR FILM. AND THIS IS — THERE’S ACTUALLY A FRAMED “MAD” IN THE PHOTO.>>I HAD THE IDEA THAT “BOUNTY LAW” WOULD HAVE BEEN — THEY WOULD HAVE DONE A PARODY OF IT BACK IN THE DAY, LIKE ’62 OR SOMETHING.>>Jimmy: SURE THEY WOULD HAVE.>>AND I THOUGHT LET’S DO A COVER, LET’S DO AN ISSUE. AND THAT WILL JUST BE ON RICK’S WALL. SO THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN WE GOT IN TOUCH WITH THE “MAD” PEOPLE. THEY LIKED THE IDEA. AND SO WE SAID, WELL, WOULD YOU DO A PARODY OF “BOUNTY LAW” FOR THE — FOR YOUR MAGAZINE? AND THEY SAID YES. THEY LOVED THE ARTWORK AND EVERYTHING. THEY DID THE PARODY. WE SHOWED THEM ALL THE FOOTAGE WE HAD FROM “BOUNTY LAW.” I EXPLAINED IT TO THEM. THEY DID THE PARODY. BUT I HAVE TO SAY. AS YOU SAID, AS A PERSON WHO GREW UP WITH “MAD,” AS A PERSON WHO GREW UP WITH “MAD,” I CAME UP WITH THE TITLE. “LOUSY LAW.” [ APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: I WAS GOING TO SAY, IT’S PERFECT. ALL YOU NEED IS A — >>TO ACTUALLY BE THE TAERKT OF WHAT EVENTUALLY BECAME THE COVER BUT TO ACTUALLY NAME MY OWN “MADD” PARODY, FORGET THE OSCAR, THIS IS MY OSCAR. THIS IS MY IRVING THALBERG AWARD. [ APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: QUENTIN TARANTINO IS HERE. THE MOVIE’S “ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD.” WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK.>>>THIS AIN’T AN ANDY McLAUGHLIN PICTURE. AND I CAN’T AFFORD TO HIRE A BUNCH OF GUYS THAT SMOKE CIGARETTES AND TALK TO EACH OTHER ALL DAY ON THE CHANCE THAT I MIGHT USE THEM.>>I’VE GOT A FOUR-MAN TEAM HERE, RICK. I NEED MORE THAN THAT I’VE GOT TO GET IT APPROVED. AND I’VE GOT TO LOOK AFTER MY –>>AND IF YOUR DUDES WERE A BETTER MATCH FOR ME I’D SAY OKAY, YOU GOT ME. BUT THAT’S NOT THE CASE AND YOU KNOW IT. HE’S A GREAT MATCH FOR ME.>>YEAH.>>HEY, YOU COULD DO ANYTHING YOU WANT TO HIM. THROW HIM OFF A BUILDING, RIGHT? LIGHT HIM ON FIRE. HIT HIM WITH A LINCOLN. RIGHT? GET CREATIVE. DO WHATEVER YOU WANT. HE’S JUST HAPPY FOR THE OPPORTUNITY.>>THAT IS KURT RUSSELL AND LEONARDO DiCAPRIO IN “ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD.” IT OPENS ON FRIDAY. BOY, IS THERE ANY — YOU’VE GOT SO MANY GREAT STARS. I MENTIONED THE FOLKS THAT WERE HERE EARLIER. AL PACINO IS IN THE MOVIE. LUKE PERRY’S IN THE MOVIE. AND HE WAS TERRIFIC IN THE MOVIE.>>HE’S FANTASTIC IN THE FILM. YEAH. TIMOTHY OLIPHANT. LENA DUNHAM.>>Jimmy: LENA DUNHAM HAD A PART IN THE MOVIE. IS THERE ANYONE THAT SAYS NO WHEN YOU ASK THEM? HAS IT EVER HAPPENED TO YOU?>>IT HAS HAPPENED. IT HAS HAPPENED BEFORE. IT ALL DEPENDS ON LIKE THEIR SCHEDULE. ARE THEY AVAILABLE? I CAN HONESTLY SAY I HAVEN’T HAD TOO MANY PEOPLE SAY NO, I DON’T LIKE THE SCRIPT, NO, I DON’T THINK THE PART IS RIGHT FOR ME. I HAVEN’T HAD THAT HAPPEN IN A LITTLE BIT.>>Jimmy: THAT’S NICE. THAT’S A LOVELY LUXURY TO HAVE, ISN’T IT?>>I ONLY ASK PEOPLE I THINK ARE GOING TO SAY YES, THOUGH.>>Jimmy: WELL, YEAH, WHY NOT? WITH THIS MOVIE DID YOU SHOW THE ACTORS — I KNOW SOMETIMES YOU LIKE TO SIT AN ACTOR DOWN AND SAY I WANT YOU TO WATCH THIS MOVIE OR LET’S WATCH THESE MOVIES TOGETHER. IT’S ALMOST LIKE A FILM SCHOOL KIND OF SITUATION.>>OH, YEAH, NO — >>Jimmy: DID YOU DO THAT WITH THIS ONE?>>ESPECIALLY WHEN IT CAME TO THE ERA, 1969, I SHOWED HIM — WE SHOWED THE CREW MOVIES LIKE “MODEL SHOP” OR “BOB AND CAROL TED AND ALICE.” IT WAS REALLY COOL. “EASY RIDER.” BUT ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WAS REALLY FUN THAT ENDED UP BEING A CRAZY COINCIDENCE WAS BRAD HAD ALREADY READ THE SCRIPT A COUPLE OF TIMES AND HE WAS COMING OVER TO MY HOUSE JUST FOR US TO SPEND THE NIGHT TOGETHER AND TALK ABOUT THE CHARACTER. AND SO HE SHOWS US AND I’M THINKING THAT — I’M THINKING THERE’S SOMETHING I WANT TO SHOW HIM THAT WOULD BE AN INTERESTING AVENUE OF DISCUSSION. I HAVE A FILM PRINT READY TO GO WHEN HE GETS HERE, WE’LL GET AROUND TO THAT. SO HE SHOWS UP AND HE’S GOT A DVD THAT HE WANTS TO WATCH. AND SO HE BRINGS OUT A DVD OF THE MOVIE “BILLY JACK.”>>Jimmy: YES.>>AND HE WAS LIKE — YOU KNOW, I THINK THERE’S SOMETHING IN TOM McLAUGHLIN’S PERFORMANCE IN HERE THAT WOULD BE REALLY GOOD FOR CLIFF. I THINK THAT COULD BE AN INTERESTING JUMPING OFF POINT. I THOUGHT WE COULD WATCH IT TOGETHER. AND HE’S GOT THIS DVD OF “BILLY JACK.” I GO, BRAD, I HAVE A 35-MILLIMETER PRINT OF “BILLY JACK” CUED UP ON MY PROJECTOR TO SHOW YOU TONIGHT. [ APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: WELL, THAT’S — YOU’RE ON THE SAME PAGE I GUESS.>>ABSOLUTELY ON THE SAME PAGE. AND IT WASN’T THAT THE CHARACTER WAS LIKE BILLY JACK. IT WAS THAT YOU COULD IMAGINE TOM LOUGHLIN PLAYING THIS CHARACTER. SO WE WANTED TO LOOK AT IT FROM THAT PERSPECTIVE.>>Jimmy: IS THIS REALLY GOING TO BE YOUR SECOND TO LAST MOVIE? YOU’RE REALLY GOING TO DO ONE MORE AND THAT’S IT?>>THAT’S THE IDEA. I MEAN — >>Jimmy: WHOSE IDEA IS THIS?>>MY IDEA.>>Jimmy: THIS IS A BAD IDEA.>>WELL, I’M NOT SAYING I’LL JUST DISAPPEAR LIKE J.D. SALINGER. I’LL BE A WRITER — >>Jimmy: WHAT, YOU’LL PLAY GOLF?>>WELL, I HAVEN’T BEEN MARRIED. I HAVEN’T HAD KIDS. I JUST GOT MARRIED. I WANT TO HAVE KIDS. YOU KNOW. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: I SEE.>>DOING A TV THING COULD BE REALLY KIND OF COOL. BUT I KIND OF LIKE THE IDEA OF MAKING TEN MOTION PICTURES AND THEN BOOM, THAT’S IT, THAT’S DONE, THE FILMOGRAPHY IS LOCKED AND THERE YOU GO.>>Jimmy: 12 WOULD BE GOOD TOO. OR 13 OR EVEN 15 IS A NICE NUMBER.>>WELL, YOU’RE KIND OF TALKING ME INTO IT.>>Jimmy: IS “STAR TREK” A MOVIE YOU’RE STILL THINKING ABOUT MAKING? [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>HELLO, GORGEOUS. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: EXCUSE ME ONE SECOND. ARE YOU CUTTING THROUGH AGAIN? WHAT’S GOING ON?>>NO. ACTUALLY, I JUST WANTED TO INVITE THE WHOLE AUDIENCE TO COME SEE “ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD.” [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: I WILL SAY THAT’S VERY SWEET. BUT LEO ALREADY INVITED THEM TO SEE IT.>>HE DID?>>Jimmy: YEAH, YEAH, WHEN HE WAS CUTTING THROUGH.>>OH, OKAY.>>Jimmy: AND WE WOULD LOVE TO COME, BY THE WAY. WE ALL DECIDED WE’D LIKE TO COME.>>I’M SORRY. IT’S JUST WE JUST HAVE ROOM FOR THE AUDIENCE. TICKETS ARE REALLY LIKE — >>Jimmy: THERE’S ONLY ONE — I’M ONLY ONE PERSON.>>YEAH, BUT YOU GET IT. YOU UNDERSTAND.>>Jimmy: YEAH.>>GUILLERMO. DO YOU WANT TO COME TO THE MOVIE?>>Guillermo: I WOULD LOVE TO COME, YES.>>Jimmy: I THOUGHT YOU SAID YOU HAD NO ROOM FOR ANYBODY BUT THE AUDIENCE.>>YEAH. BUT WE CAN DEFINITELY MAKE SPACE FOR GUILLERMO.>>Jimmy: WELL, THAT MAKES SENSE. WELL, YOU GUYS ALL HAVE FUN. ARE YOU TAKING OFF TOO?>>I’M TAKING OFF.>>Jimmy: MARGOT ROBBIE AND GUILLERMO. ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD. IT OPENS FRIDAY. WE’LL BE BACK WITH KEITH L. WILLIAMS.

  1. This, the new jay and silent bob movie and the new Top gun maverick…Trump really is making America great again!

  2. his interviews are so precious that they almost feel fugacious or they are going to disappear, I get so excited watching and listening that I forget to actually listen, I grasp every moment, hoping for it to never finish.

  3. Love this man…have been a super fan of his work since forever…love his mind, his vision, his eye. Cant wait to see the movie!

  4. Right now I'm just wondering if the audience actually did get to see once upon a time in Hollywood or if it was just a joke

  5. Why did they interrupt with that skit when we were about to hear from Tarantino himself about his involvement from Star Trek?

  6. "I haven't had anyone say 'No I don't like the script' or 'The parts not right for me' in quite a while".

    Yeahhhhhh… Tell that Will Smith.

  7. Sometimes it's like I'm just expecting Quentin's brain to pop right out of his skull. I don't know how it's still in there.

  8. i could care less about star trek, i do however want to see his next movie. Thought this movie was incredible 10/10

  9. What’s that curtain Margot Robbie is wearing. Some poor orphan is going to have to sleep with light shining on his face.

  10. Haha whenever you compliment Tarantino on his movies he says "awe thankyousomuch" super fast as in "ya I know it's a masterpiece"

  11. Theirs no way mr.tarantino will just make 10 films an be done . This is his passion his life his brain couldn't handle not being creative.

  12. I do not believe Quentin should direct a big budget film like Star Trek, Guy Ritchie attempted to branch out into those types of films and it doesn't work for auteur directors. I do think he should create his own unique sci fi film, that would be awesome!

  13. Tarantino is so humble, and almost acts like he’s completely unaware of the fact that he’s the best director/writer in the world. I love his passion.

  14. As much as a filmophile Tarantino is I’m shocked he didn’t know Ernest Borgnine wasn’t even in the Towering Inferno.

  15. What's not to love about QT giving back to Sharon the life she lost and giving her the life she should have had? The best part of the movie wasn't just the silent tribute to Sharon and her vivacious spirit. More than anything else the best part was the fact that Quentin took us all along for the ride !!

    I'm sure Sharon is looking down and smiling from where she is.

  16. Could we all agree that Quentin Tarantino will win Best Picture, Directing and Screenplay please??? this dude is a genius!!💪💪
