Actor Brad Pitt appeared on the red carpet at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival with his co-stars in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. The film, set in Hollywood in 1969, was directed by five-time Oscar winner Quentin Tarantino. Pitt, also an Academy Award winner, is a member of the Breitling Cinema Squad and was sporting a Premier B01 Chronograph 42 on his wrist. Breitling CEO Georges Kern and selected special guests were at the movie’s premiere as well as at Sony Pictures’ after-premiere party, for which Breitling was an Official Partner. It was held at the JW Marriott Hotel in Cannes.
