The first teaser trailer for Martin Scorsese’s next movie is here and it’s packed with a lot of familiar faces. Our first look at the western Killers of the flower moon includes Scorsese mainstays Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio, joined by Lily Gladstone, Jesse Plemons, Tantoo Cardinal, Cara Jade Myers, JaNae Collins and Jillian Dion.
Set in Oklahoma in the 1920s, it revolves around a series of murders known as the ‘Reign of Terror’. It is based on a book by David Grann. Here’s the full description:
In the early 1900s, oil brought fortune to the Osage Nation, who overnight became one of the richest people in the world. The wealth of these Native Americans immediately attracted white invaders, who manipulated, extorted, and stole as much Osage money as possible before resorting to murder.
Killers of the flower moon stands out not only for its talent and premise, but also because it marks a new strategy for Apple. The film will hit theaters in October – a limited release begins on the 6th, before going wide on the 20th – and will stream on Apple TV Plus some time after that (no specific date has been announced just yet). Other streamers have attempted a similar rollout (notably Netflix, with the premiere of Glass Onion: A Mystery of the Blades).
The new trailer also comes as the revered Scorsese has been very open about his career in interviews and talk deadline recently that, at the age of 80, “the whole world has opened up to me, but it’s too late.”
