Killers of the Flower Moon will be one of 2023’s most anticipated new films simply because it will be directed by Martin Scorsese. In Killers of the Flower Moon, however, the renowned director reunites with not one but two of his all-time favorite collaborators: Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio.

The following is the entirety of our knowledge of Killers of the Flower Moon.

Since Apple TV Plus has promised an exclusive run for Killers of the Flower Moon, we don’t know when the Martin Scorsese film will be made accessible for streaming on the service.
The new Scorsese film will have its world premiere at the prestigious Cannes 2023 Film Festival in May, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter(opens in new tab). The film, titled Killers of the Flower Moon, will be seen for the first time by festivalgoers at that time.
Who Are the Characters in Killers of the Flower Moon?
Ernest Burkhart, played by DiCaprio, is the central character and the nephew of William Hale (De Niro), a wealthy cattleman. His wife, Gladstone, is a niece of Hale’s. Plemons takes on the role of former Texas Ranger Tom White, who works with the FBI to solve the case. Lithgow plays the prosecutor tasked with convicting Hale, and Fraser keeps up his comeback as defense attorney W.S. Hamilton.
Eric Roth penned the script, and Martin Scorsese directed it. In addition to Forrest Gump and Ali and Munich and A Star Is Born and both Dune pictures, Roth has written The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and A Star Is Born.
The film is produced by Dan Friedkin, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, and Bradley Thomas, in addition to DiCaprio and Scorsese. The counties of Osage and Washington, Oklahoma, were used for filming. Scorsese made an effort to work with the Osage tribe by including Indigenous people in the cast and shooting on tribal property.
Killers of the Flower Moon is set to make its world premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, so attendees may get a sneak glimpse. Given the film’s impressive ensemble cast, it’s likely to do well at the Oscars. In the meantime, please read our most recent conversation with Fraser.
Leonardo DiCaprio Has Called Killers of the Flower Moon a ‘Masterpiece’
We may soon get to see more of Killers of the Flower Moon now that a premiere date has been set. We’ve only seen one photo of a tired-looking Leonardo DiCaprio and Lily Gladstone as Ernest’s wife, Mollie Burkhart. While we await further images and information, costume designer Jacqueline West has recently revealed what DiCaprio thinks of the project…
“I was talking to Leo about it. We had lunch before I came here,” she began. “He said, ‘Jackie, I think we worked on a masterpiece’. I thought for Leo to say that, was something. He doesn’t say that lightly. He has been in the business since he was a little boy.”
Killers of the Flower Moon has Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese working together for the eighth time, and with a reported budget of $200 million, the film has all it needs to be one of the greatest of the year.
Therefore, once again for the record, Killers of the Flower Moon will now have a restricted theatrical release on October 6 and a wider release on October 20. After that, Apple TV+ is where you can find Western crime dramas.
