The first trailer for Killers of the Flower Moon has been released. The movie will have its world premiere in just a few days at the Cannes International Film Festival, where it will play out of competition. Written and directed by Martin Scorsese and co-written by Eric Roth, the movie is an adaptation of the book of the same name written by David Grann.
The film will star Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, Jesse Plemons, Lily Gladstone, Tantoo Cardinal, Brendan Fraser, and John Lithgow. Its plot synopsis reads, “At the turn of the 20th century, oil brought a fortune to the Osage Nation, who became some of the richest people in the world overnight. The wealth of these Native Americans immediately attracted white interlopers, who manipulated, extorted, and stole as much Osage money as they could before resorting to murder.”
Apple TV+ has partnered with Paramount Pictures to release the movie exclusively in theatres before it makes its streaming debut. The film will first release on October 6 in select theatres, until a wide expansion on October 20. The studio partnered with Sony to release Ridley Scott‘s Napoleon in theatres in November. A streaming release date for both are forthcoming. Watch the trailer for Killers of the Flower Moon below:
