Martin Scorsese fans can start getting excited about the next offering from the legendary director. Killers of the Flower Moon is set to be released in cinemas in early October, followed by a streaming release on Apple TV+. It’s an epic Western crime drama featuring an all-star cast of long-time collaborators with the director, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro.

After receiving a nine-minute standing ovation at its Cannes Film Festival premiere, this picture has huge potential to be one of Scorsese’s best.


Yet Another Collaboration Between DiCaprio and Scorsese

Killers of the Flower Moon will be the sixth collaboration between Scorsese and DiCaprio. There’s no doubt now that this partnership could go down as one of the greatest between a director and an actor in the history of cinema. The two first got together on Gangs of New York in 2002, and most recently reunited for The Wolf of Wall Street in 2013.

The latest Scorsese offering featuring the 48-year-old was easily one of the most memorable in the filmmaker’s catalog. It told the story of some famous traders who were highly adept at playing the stock market. Indeed, the movie was so accurate that some trading companies even use it as a piece of educational content alongside more standard trading tools such as the economic calendar. The latter is used to keep track of important events in that could impact financial markets, such as the Fed interest rate decision.


The new picture will also be the eleventh time that Scorsese and De Niro have worked together. Some would argue that the two have formed the most esteemed partnership in film ever, and it may be hard for DiCaprio to usurp De Niro in this regard. De Niro has featured in many classics for Scorsese, including Raging Bull and Goodfellas. However, only DiCaprio has starred in an Academy Award-winning film for the director. The Departed picked up the Best Picture accolade in 2006.

Will be One of Scorsese’s Longest Films

Many directors have famously professed their opposition to the rise of streaming services, including Scorsese. However, the 80-year-old is one big name who has adapted to the new medium. He released The Irishman on Netflix in 2019, a project that he’d been dreaming of making since the 1980s. However, due to the incredible scope of the picture, no production studios picked it up. Netflix eventually did, and there was no disputing the 209-minute run time.

Scorsese appears to enjoy making long movies that are rich in detail. Killers of the Flower Moon is set to join The Irishman as one of the longest in the director’s career as well, with a 206-minute run time. The picture will tell the story of the Osage tribe, who were murdered in the 1920s under mysterious circumstances.

Killers of the Flower Moon is set for release in October 2023 and is likely to be in contention for all the major accolades at next year’s Academy Awards.
