Apple TV+ shared a trailer for the epic western crime drama ‘Killers of the Flower Moon,’ featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and Lily Gladstone. The film had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
Based on the David Grann nonfiction book of the same name, Killers of the Flower Moon explores the murders of Osage Nation members in the 1920s after oil was discovered on tribal land. An official film synopsis reads: “Based on a true story and told through the improbable romance of Ernest Burkhart (DiCaprio) and Mollie Kylie (Gladstone), Killers of the Flower Moon is an epic western crime saga, where real love crosses paths with unspeakable betrayal.”
Killers of the Flower Moon, directed by Martin Scorsese and written by Scorsese and Eric Roth, also stars Robert De Niro, Jesse Plemons, Brendan Fraser and John Lithgow. The film is Scorsese’s first since The Irishman, starring De Niro, was released in 2019.
Killers of the Flower Moon will open in select theaters Oct. 6 before a wide release Oct. 20. The film will later stream on Apple TV+. Take a look at the trailer – here.
