(This post was updated with a new trailer.) Apple TV+ has released the official trailer for Martin Scorsese’s Killers of the Flower Moon.
About The Film:
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.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Lily Gladstone, Robert De Niro, Jesse Plemons, Tantoo Cardinal, Cara Jade Myers, JaNae Collins, and Jillian Dion.
October 6, 2023, in theaters

David Grann shared the following words about the film:
In the 1920s, members of the Osage Nation in Oklahoma were the wealthiest people per capita in the country, because oil had been discovered under their land.
Then, one by one, they began to die under mysterious circumstances.
Killers of the Flower Moon tells the story of one of American history’s most sinister conspiracies and terrible racial injustices.
Like the Tulsa Race Massacre, which occurred only thirty miles away during the same period, this critical chapter has long been erased from our nation’s history books.
A century after these crimes, we have tried to shine a light on the true story.
Killers was filmed in Oklahoma in the very places where these events took place, and several Osages whose relatives perished appeared in the film.
It is an American crime story that is less about who did it than who didn’t do it.
It is about widespread complicity.
And ultimately, it is about a reckoning with our past that is long overdue.
