Quentin Tarantino and The Internet Mourn the Passing of Rick Dalton

Quentin Tarantino and The Internet Mourn the Passing of Rick Dalton

Leonardo DiCaprio is set to star in Martin Scorsese’s upcoming Killers of the Flower Moon, but director Quentin Tarantino has decided to have some fun with another of DiCaprio’s characters, Rick Dalton from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Taratino’s podcast The Video Archives Podcast just shared the announcement that former movie star Rick Dalton has passed away. Here’s the post:

Immediately fans and other movie accounts started posting their ‘tributes’ out to Dalton, celebrating his fictional career. Even the New Beverly Cinema (which is owned by Tarantino) decided to get past the internet, and posted up a tribute to Dalton on their marquee.

Here are some other posts going around:


Probably my favorite part of the bit is the reactions where they try to ‘cancel’ Dalton based on the events of the film, from his association to Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) to him burning one of the Manson kids in his pool.

So far everyone is enjoying Tarantino’s little update on the OUATIH canon, but it would be great if we also found out what happened to some of the other characters. You think Sharon Tate would have lived to 2023 in this Tarantino’s alternate timeline?

To further remember Dalton’s legacy, you can check him out in Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
