Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, the new movie by director Quentin Tarantino that tells a tale of Hollywood in the late 1960s, arrives in theaters later this week. The film stars Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in a story that's set loosely around the backstory of the Manson Family murders in 1969.
The new film debuted at the Cannes Film Festival in May, and its arrival in theaters is highly anticipated. Days before it arrives, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has set off a very strange battle on, of all places, Wikipedia. And it has shown what the limitations are of Wikipedia as a source of information.
The summary, as of Tuesday afternoon, is accurate up until the final paragraph, which lists a series of third-act events that do not actually take place in the film.
"There is a totally fake ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD summary up on Wikipedia," writer Andrew Woods tweeted Monday. "Don't even read it if you don't want to know what DOESN'T happen."
