‘Killers Of The Flower Moon’: First Trailer Drops For Martin Scorsese’s Anticipated Epic Starring DiCaprio, De Niro & Lily Gladstone

Killers of the Flower Moon

The teaser trailer for Martin Scorsese’s highly anticipated Killers of the Flower Moon released Thursday morning offers the first look at the sweeping scope of the director’s epic, 3-hour and 26-minute film.

The Apple Original Films drama will make its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday, before opening in select theaters on October 6, 2023 through Paramount Pictures before expanding October 20. It later moves to streaming globally on Apple TV+.

Watch the trailer above.

Over images of a turn-of-the 20th century Oklahoma boomtown and its people, we hear a Midwestern-accented Leonardo DiCaprio (as Ernest Burkhart) relate basics of the Osage Nation’s story as it relates to the invasion of the white man, in Pawhuska, Oklahoma.

At the turn of the 20th century, oil brought a fortune to the Osage Nation, whose members became some of the richest people in the world, virtually 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.

Based on a true story and told through the romance between Burkhart (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Mollie Kyle (Lily Gladstone), Killers of the Flower Moon is an epic Western crime saga, where real love crosses paths with unspeakable betrayal.
