I just bought the blu-ray version of Quentin Tarantino's latest movie 'Once upon a time in ... Hollywood', but on IMDB it says Once upon a time ... in Hollywood.  
Could you please move the 3 dots (...) on its rightful spot?  Thanks ... and keep up the good job ... IMDB is pure heaven for us movie buffs!!  :)

He is right there is an error on the IMDb page of the movie.

The title appears at the end of the trailer that can be found on the official website - the dots are after the 'in' there.

We need someone who has seen how the title appears in the movie itself as first publicly screened to know what the primary title should be. Since the studio itself is using both versions (and on the same page) I think whichever is not the primary should be added as an alternate.

Ken: On screen in the original theatrical release, the three dots (ellipsis) appeared after the word "Time", not after the word "in", so the official IMDb title should be Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood.

Because the punctuation on the posters and elsewhere is different, that should be indciated in the Alternate Titles section.

Note: I am not 100% sure whether the space should appear before or after the ellipsis or both, but I am certain that in the official title, the ellipsis should appear after the fourth word rather than the fifth.

According to grammerly, it should have a space before and after the ellipsis (which is weird for me as I always thought there should be no spaces.)
