The new Killers of the Flower Moon trailer has arrived, showing off the film based on a true story.
The early days of the oil industry were filled with many stories of betrayal and greed, but none may have been more egregious than what happened to the Osage nation. Martin Scorsese will now be fiving into this story for Apple Studios. While the film will eventually reside on Apple TV Plus, it will first receive a theatrical release in late Oct.
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. Based on a true story and told through the improbable romance of Ernest 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. Also starring Robert De Niro, Jesse Plemons, John Lithgow, Brendan Fraser, Tantoo Cardinal, Cara Jade Myers, JaNae Collins, and Jillian Dion, Killers of the Flower Moon is directed by Academy Award winner Martin Scorsese from a screenplay by Eric Roth and Scorsese, based on David Grann’s best-selling book.
Killers of the Flower Moon will hit theaters on Oct. 20.
