We’ve put together a series of daring, explosive, stunt-tastic films to celebrate the release of Quentin Tarantino’s ONCE UPON A TIME … IN HOLLYWOOD.
Forging a lifelong friendship on the sets of B-Westerns, charismatic Burt Reynolds and rough-and-tumble Hal Needham made up the greatest actor/stuntman combo of their era – a dynamic mined for the DiCaprio/Pitt relationship in ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD. With Hal later behind the helm as director and Burt in front of the camera, the two delivered bang-’em-up comedies like SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT and THE CANNONBALL RUN that fed off of their complementing talents.
With HOOPER, the two team up to tell the story of Hollywood stuntman Sonny Hooper (Reynolds). He’s the best in the biz, but he’s getting older, and he’ll have to prove himself when reckless hotshot Ski (Jan-Michael Vincent) shows up on the scene.
With a stellar supporting cast (including the great Sally Field) and all the explosions, flying cars, and general death defiance you could possibly want, HOOPER is a pure joy ride from beginning to end.
