Cannes 2019: Tarantino, Pitt and DiCaprio trigger hysteria on the red carpet
The first fans are already waiting for the stars on the red carpet hours before the premiere. No other premiere at the festival will trigger such hustle and bustle this year. Even other celebrities are eager to be the first to see this film.
If the jubilation before the start of the film were a yardstick, Quentin Tarantino would have the golden palm at the Cannes Film Festival. Because even before his highly anticipated work "Once upon a time ... in Hollywood" began in the premier hall on the Croisette, the director and his star actors Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie were celebrated frenetically in the hall and on the red carpet.
Such hysteria did not trigger another premiere at the festival this year - exactly a quarter of a century after Tarantino won the golden palm for "Pulp Fiction" in Cannes.
Also noteworthy was the pull that "Once upon a time ... in Hollywood" had on other celebrities: The gala guests on Tuesday evening included Fatih Akin, Adrien Brody, Andie MacDowell and Timothée Chalamet.
The big-eared gray mouse cubs had many fans: the adventures of fix and fax were an integral part of the GDR comic magazine "Atze". The creator of the two figures, Jürgen Kieser, has now died at the age of 97.
The big pop brimborium: The Backstreet Boys performed Tuesday evening in the Tui-Arena in Hanover. The sold out show is the first of four dates in Germany.
