Quentin Tarantino pens open letter to Cannes to not reveal Once Upon A Time in Hollywood spoilers

Ahead of its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on 21 May, Quentin Tarantino has penned an open letter to those attending the fest urging them to avoid spoilers on Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.

"I’m thrilled to be here in Cannes to share Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood with the festival audience. The cast and crew have worked hard to create something original, and I only ask that everyone avoids revealing anything that would prevent later audiences from experiencing the film in the same way. Thank you," he wrote in a letter posted by the movie's Twitter account.

Huma Qureshi donned a grey ruffled creation by designer Gaurav Gupta as she represented Grey Goose at the event. Describing her look in a statement to Indo-Asian News Service she said, "It is a very edgy meets classical thing, so I think a Game of Thrones would be a classic reference."
