After a constant online debate that couldn’t figure out how long the movie was going to last, Martin Scorsese‘s Killers of the Flower Moon has officially confirmed its runtime, with 3 hours and 26 minutes of cinematic intensity coming your way soon. The film will hold its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next month.
After that, you’ll be able to catch Martin Scorsese’s next movie in theaters nationwide in October, followed by a release for streaming on Apple TV+. Adapted from a book detailing a real-life account, the film will be set in the 1920s and it will follow the serial murder of members of the oil-wealthy Osage Nation, a string of brutal crimes that came to be known as the Reign of Terror.
The result of this terrible wave of crime was the creation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert DeNiro will lead the movie, while Lily Gladstone, Jesse Plemons, Cara Jade Myers, JaNae Collins, Jillian Dion and Tantoo Cardinal will also form part of the movie’s cast, positioning the upcoming release as a strong contender for next year’s awards season.
Scorsese isn’t slowing down, as this is the first project he will release after The Irishman impressed audiences from all over the world back in 2019. DeNiro, alongside Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, told the story of a mafia group that had very intense confrontations in their youth, eventually leading to the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa.
