May 21 (UPI) -- Sony released a 2 1/2-minute trailer for Quentin Tarantino's ninth film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood on Tuesday.

Set in 1969, the clip shows Leonardo DiCaprio as Rick Dalton, a fictional fading TV and movie star trying to stay relevant in a changing industry. He is seen discussing his concerns with his stunt double Cliff Booth, played by Brad Pitt.

"It's official, old buddy. I'm a has-been," Rick complained.

Cliff listened patiently and tried to bolster his friend's confidence.

"You're Rick (expletive) Dalton. Don't you forget it," Cliff told him.

Cliff also crosses paths with Charles Manson (Damon Herriman,) a real-life a cult leader who inspired his followers to kill nine people, including starlet Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie.)

Other A-listers who appear in the preview for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood are Al Pacino, the late Luke Perry, Timothy Olyphant, Dakota Fanning, Margaret Qualley and Kurt Russell.

Perry died in March after suffering a stroke. He was 52.
