Killers of the Flower Moon will have its grand premiere at the Cannes International Film Festival.
Martin Scorsese reunites with his fetish actors Leonardo Dicaprio and robert deniro for the first time in the first preview of “Killers of the Flower Moon”the upcoming epic western based on the best-selling nonfiction book by david grann in 2017 “Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI.”
In addition to DiCaprio and De Niro, the film stars Lily Gladstone, Jesse Plemons, Cara Jade Myers, JaNae Collins, Jillian Dion, Brendan Fraser and Tantoo Cardinal.
What Killers of the Flower Moon is about
Set in 1920s Oklahoma, the drama centers on a series of murders by the Osage Nation over oil rights and the newly formed FBI investigation into the murders.
DiCaprio stars in the film as Ernest Burkhart, the nephew of a powerful local rancher (De Niro) who becomes embroiled in the Osage Nation murders. Burkhart is married to an indigenous woman, played by Gladstone. Plemons plays Tom White, the top FBI agent investigating the murders. “Flower Moon” was originally envisioned for DiCaprio to play the FBI agent, but the actor retconned the script after deciding to switch roles to the more morally ambiguous Ernest.
The clip features DiCaprio’s character, who says in an ominous voiceover: “There are many, many hungry wolves. Can you find the wolves in this picture? As the trailer intensifies, there are glimpses of DiCaprio, De Niro and Gladstone in scenes of mayhem and violence as blood-curdling screams ring out in the background. “Greed is an animal,” reads the trailer’s title card, “that hungers for blood.” Before the teaser ends, DiCaprio asks again, “Can you find the wolves in this picture?”
