Leonardo DiCaprio on Franchise Fatigue and the Rise of Streaming

The star-studded premiere of “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” which took place at the iconic TCL Chinese Theater on Monday night, brought back an era of filmmaking that Hollywood veteran Leonardo DiCaprio thinks no longer exists in the age of streaming.

“So when you’re talking about a movie that’s shot on film, where you have all of Hollywood Boulevard that is physically transformed into 1969 with no CGI, this is kind of a real throwback to an era of filmmaking that we’re not gonna see any more — in a way, it is a bit of a dinosaur,” DiCaprio told Variety on the carpet. “I just hope that we’re still gonna have this communal theatrical experience of going to see a great piece of art all together.”
