Apple Studios and Paramount Pictures have finally given us our first peak at the highly anticipated Martin Scorsese period crime drama “Killers of the Flower Moon”. A new teaser dropped today for the filmmaker’s much talked about follow-up to his acclaimed 2019 hit “The Irishman”. The film is based on David Grann’s best-selling 2017 non-fiction book “Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI”. The captivating new teaser leaves a striking impression.
Scorsese directs from a script he co-wrote with Eric Roth. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, Jesse Plemons, Lily Gladstone, Brendan Fraser, John Lithgow, and Tantoo Cardinal. It follows the FBI’s investigation into the mysterious murder of Osage tribe members in 1920s Oklahoma. The film is set to have its world premiere this weekend at the Cannes Film Festival and will get a wide theater release before streaming on Apple TV+. That’s exciting news because this looks custom-made for the big screen.
“Killers of the Flower Moon” hits theaters October 20th. Check out the teaser below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
Well put together. I hope it tells the truth. Not sure what The Irishman link is? I guess I’ll find out.
Oh I don’t think it’s connected to The Irishman. Just Scorsese’s follow-up film. I should have worded that better.
Oh ok. Kind of relieved tbh!
I’ll see it on Apple over 2 nights, it’ll probably be a ruddy marathon if The Irishman is anything to go by.
I think it’s supposed to be over three hours, right?
You’d think by now Scorsese could tell a story succinctly, sigh.
I don’t know, I don’t mind epic-sized movies if they’re well done and keep my impression.
(T’was a lil joke 🙂 )
Ahh ok. I know many who really push back on this current wave of super-long movies. It’s a tricky choice. It can go reeeally bad for a movie.
I saw that trailer just this morning. Looks very interesting!
I’m really excited to see it.
Yeah, I’m fucking watching this film. After I had dropped off and picked up alterations for my mother. This was the first thing I saw on YouTube as I had to see it and… oh man… it looks gorgeous and it looks like the kind of western I expected from Marty.
Automatically rises near the top of my most anticipated. Looks incredible!!!
