Apple TV+ has unveiled the highly-anticipated teaser trailer for Martin Scorsese’s epic film, “Killers of the Flower Moon,” and the general consensus is that it’s a masterpiece. The trailer showcases a visually stunning movie that delves into a haunting narrative of greed and murder.

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Ernest Burkhart and Lily Gladstone as Mollie Burkhart, Ernest’s Osage wife, the film introduces us to a complex web of characters. Robert De Niro portrays a formidable local rancher, while Brendan Fraser and Jesse Plemons also join the stellar cast.

“Killers of the Flower Moon” is adapted from David Grann’s book of the same name, which explores the Osage Murders and the birth of the FBI in 1920s Oklahoma. The storyline revolves around the chilling series of crimes known as the Reign of Terror, where wealthy members of the Osage Nation were mercilessly targeted.

In summary, the first teaser trailer for “Killers of the Flower Moon” promises a visually captivating and emotionally intense cinematic experience as it unveils a dark chapter in American history.

Here’s a description of the story:

At the end of the nineteenth century, the Osage Indians were driven onto a presumed worthless expanse of land in northeastern Oklahoma. But their territory turned out to be atop one of the largest oil deposits in the United States; to obtain that oil, prospectors were required to pay the tribe for leases and royalties. By the 1920s, the members of Osage Nation had become the wealthiest people per capita in the world. And then the Osage began to die under mysterious circumstances.

Screenwriter Eric Roth expressed his initial ignorance about the unique story of the film, which he believed could be a Western due to its unfamiliarity. He highlighted the film’s distinctive street scene, where the majority of characters are Native American indigenous people, with only a small Caucasian presence. Roth incorporated various Western tropes into the story and hinted at an extraordinary approach to the end credits, indicating that the director, Marty, planned to shoot them in a unique way.

Roth described the movie as something unprecedented and destined to become a timeless classic. He praised Marty’s intention to create a Western that combines social commentary, violence, and environmental themes, making it unlike anything audiences have ever seen. He believed this film would stand out and leave a lasting impact.

The movie is set to have a limited theatrical release on October 6, 2023, followed by a wider release on October 20, 2023. You can watch the trailer and share your thoughts on it.
