Martin Scorsese’s highly anticipated film, “Killers of the Flower Moon,” has been generating buzz among movie fans since it was first announced. And with Scorsese reuniting with two of his longtime collaborators, Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio, fans are eagerly anticipating its release.
Release Date and Premiere
According to Apple TV, the film will have a limited release in theaters worldwide on October 6, 2023, followed by a wider release on October 20. While the exact date for its streaming release on Apple TV Plus has not been announced, the company has committed to an exclusive run for “Killers of the Flower Moon.”
The film is aiming for a Cannes premiere in 2023.
According to Variety, the Apple Original film may have its international debut at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, since Cannes director Thierry Fremaux apparently traveled to Los Angeles to see the film, along with other prospective programming titles.
According to reports, the running duration may play a role in whether or not “Killers of the Flower Moon” succeeds at Cannes, but main star Leonardo DiCaprio is keen to return to the festival after going for Quentin Tarantino’s 2019 Oscar winner “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”
If “Killers of the Flower Moon” makes its Cannes premiere, it will be Scorsese’s first trip to the festival since winning Best Director in 1985 for “After Hours.”
Plot and Writing
“Killers of the Flower Moon” is based on David Grann’s best-selling book, which follows the serial murder of members of the oil-rich Osage Nation in 1920s Oklahoma. The crimes, known as the Reign of Terror, led to the birth of the FBI. The film’s script was co-written by Scorsese and Eric Roth, the Oscar-winning screenwriter behind “Forrest Gump” and “Dune.”
Cast and Crew
Aside from De Niro and DiCaprio, the film stars Jesse Plemons, Lily Gladstone, and Tantoo Cardinal, among others. It also features a talented production team, including cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto, editor Thelma Schoonmaker, and composer Robbie Robertson.
DiCaprio will portray Ernest Burkhart, the father of a family at the center of the killings. DiCaprio has previously collaborated with Scorsese on Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, Shutter Island, and The Wolf of Wall Street.
Robert De Niro, on the other hand, has starred in nine Scorsese films: Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, New York, New York, Raging Bull, The King of Comedy, Goodfellas, Cape Fear, Casino, and The Irishman. De Niro has also appeared in two films alongside DiCaprio, This Boy’s Life, and Marvin’s Room. De Niro plays the role of William Hale in Killers of the Flower Moon.
