The great thing about a film festival like Cannes is the sense of discovery, that we all sit in the same room and see something for the first time, unencumbered by social media leaks (hopefully) or any other distractions. That is what is going to happen Tuesday when Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, has its much anticipated world premiere on the 25th anniversary of the Cannes debut of Tarantino’s 1994 Palme d’Or winner, Pulp Fiction. It is without a doubt the hottest ticket of this Cannes — or, quite frankly, any I can think of in recent memory. But can an entire festival keep a secret? Today, as Deadline first reported, Tarantino put out an impassioned plea to festgoers not to reveal spoilers. “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 on Instagram.

“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is set during the late-60’s and is said to include Charlie Manson and Sharon Tate as characters. It’s unclear if Tarantino (who offed Hitler in “Inglourious Basterds” in a machine gun frenzy) will deviate from history as he grapples with the infamous Manson murders. Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt play a movie star and his stunt double, while Margot Robbie plays Sharon Tate. The film also stars Emile Hirsch, Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning, and Kurt Russell.
