I believe it's part of the title. Imdb lists it as such.

That question led me to look again and see that the title is written two different ways on the poster itself!

Continues to baffle me. Continue to feel as though the tie goes to that Tarantino letter until the actual title card from the film hits the eyes of this forum's modshipmfunk9786 wrote: ↑Tue May 21, 2019 11:36 amI should inquire: What is the title of this film? Tarantino calls it Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood above, the marketing image on the film's Twitter account and in the trailer calls it Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood, and then of course there's the ellipsis-free Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Has a consensus just not really emerged? I'm inclined to say that the tie goes to the director.

What is the title of this film? Why are the ellipses different?
He's such an artiste. /s"When asked for an explanation of the film's title's spelling during a news conference at the Cannes Film Festival, Tarantino said, "I'm never going to explain that".When pushed on it, Tarantino would not explain the first u in Inglourious, but said, "The Basterds? That's just the way you say it: Basterds." Tarantino later stated in an interview that the misspelled title is "a Basquiat-esque touch." He further commented on Late Show with David Letterman that Inglourious Basterds is a "Quentin Tarantino spelling."

I'm of the opinion that the title is Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and any inclusion of ellipses is simply a matter of stylization. I also wouldn't be surprised if the title ends up being stylized differently during the opening and closing credits.
