On the 25th anniversary of Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction premiere, the legendary filmmaker was back walking the red carpet at Cannes Film Festival prior to the world premiere of the highly anticipated film ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.’

The film, which chronicles the “Helter Skelter” murders by the Manson Family in 1969, is Tarantino’s first since the 2015 American Western The Hateful Eight and boasts arguably Tarantino’s most impressive cast yet–featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino, Burt Reynolds, Kurt Russell, Dakota Fanning, Timothy Olyphant, Tim Roth, Emile Hirsch, James Marsden, Damian Lewis, and the late Luke Perry. 

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, which is slated to hit theaters in the U.S. on July 26, marks Tarantino’s ninth film. The director once claimed he was going to retire after his tenth, but after the reception he received from a packed house at Cannes, it’s evident that he hasn’t lost his fastball.

According to Deadline, the audience gave the film a seven-minute standing ovation at the end, and while Cannes boss Thierry Fremaux told the audience not to reveal spoilers, those in attendance didn’t hesitate to sing the film’s praises to the masses.

Here is the official trailer to make your pants tighter.
