Scorsese's latest directorial effort, which comes from Paramount and Apple, features another familiar face in Robert De Niro, who's worked with him on 10 films. DiCaprio stars as Ernest Burkhart, an Oklahoma resident in the 1920s who must decide between his wife (Lily Gladstone) and uncle Bill Hale (De Niro).
Following the discovery of oil deposits, the Osage Native American tribe becomes incredibly rich, angering a group of white men—Hale included—who believe that wealth belongs to them and will do just about anything to get it.
Based on David Grann's book of the same name, Killers of the Flower Moon tells the story of the "Osage Reign of Terror" where more than 60 members of the tribe were killed.
Flower Moon is Scorsese's first film since 2019's The Irishman. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the acclaimed filmmaker was given a $200 million budget by Apple. Similar to The Irishman, Scorsese is leaving it all on the field, so to speak, given the runtime of three hours and 26 minutes, as reported by Deadline.
Killers of the Flower Moon will be released in select theaters on Oct. 6 before a wide theatrical release on Oct. 20.
