Sony has released a new Once Upon a Time in Hollywood poster, this one featuring Margot Robbie – though people don’t think it looks like her.

The Australian actress plays Sharon Tate in the movie, a film star who was murdered by followers of Charles Manson when she was pregnant with Roman Polanski’s baby, in 1969.

On the poster, Sharon doesn’t appear pregnant but Robbie is wearing the same costume seen in one of the initial photos released for the movie and people think she’s been too heavily edited.



The first poster released this week featured Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio and it was also mocked for its amateurish Photoshop aesthetic.

The film, set for release in August, is the ninth feature from the acclaimed director of Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained and his first since The Hateful Eight in 2015.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is set in the midst of 1960s Los Angeles, with DiCaprio playing down on his luck TV actor Rick Dalton and Pitt his stunt double Cliff Booth.

Dalton and Booth are fictional creations, but Tate was, of course, real as was Manson who will be portrayed by Damon Herriman.

Other cast members include Dakota Fanning as Squeaky Fromme, Al Pacino as Marvin Schwarz and Damian Lewis as Steve McQueen, Kurt Russell, James Marsden, Zoë Bell, Michael Madsen, Timothy Olyphant and Bruce Dern who took over the role of George Spahn from Burt Reynolds after the latter’s death.

The film will also mark the last onscreen appearance for Luke Perry who passed away from a stroke earlier this month.
