Killers of the Flower Moon Shrugs Off Limited Release Plan For A Wide Release

Killer of the Flower Moon

Scorsese's Work Displayed The Way It Should Be

There isn’t a doubt in anyone’s mind that Martin Scorsese is one of the greatest directors alive. That being said, the idea that any of his movies would be streamer-exclusive was baffling.

His previous film, The Irishman, had a limited release in theaters but was primarily a Netflix exclusive. His new film, Killers of the Flower Moon, was going to be the same, except for Apple TV. 

That no longer seems to be the case, however.

Killers of the Flower Moon Is Going Wide

Killers of the Flower Moon will now be released in theaters on a wide release in late October instead of the previously planned limited release. Apple Studios announced this early on Tuesday, but the reason behind this decision has not been revealed.

The movie will land on the streamer at a later date, but likely after spending around three months in theaters first to give it time to make a profit. It likely won’t take long, as most movies typically debut on streaming quickly these days.

What is The Movie About?

Killers of the Flower Moon follows the investigation of Native Americans murdered under mysterious circumstances in 1920s Oklahoma. At the time the film takes place, the region is wealthy, and the natives prosper thanks to the abundance of oil on the land.

Backed by white settlers, The killing spree ultimately sparked an investigation directed by 29-year-old J. Edgar Hoover and former Texas Ranger Tom White (Jesse Plemons).

The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio in his fourth film under Scorsese as Ernest Burkhart. Robert DeNiro co-stars as William “King” Hale, who Plemons’s Tom White is investigating.

Indie actress Lily Gladstone plays the wife of DiCaprio’s character, Mollie Burkhart. Along with the main cast of actors, Killers of the Flower Moon will also feature Brendan Fraser as Hale’s corrupt attorney W.S. Hamilton, and John Lithgow as Prosecutor Leaward.

What Else Do We Know?

While the reason behind the decision to give the film a wide release is unknown, it should be noted that Hollywood is still going through the SAG-AFTRA strikes. Should an agreement not be reached between the organization and the AMPTP, the cast of Killers of the Flower Moon will not be promoting the movie.

With this in mind, a wide release could be very beneficial for the film’s success. However, given that most big-budget franchise movies have vastly underperformed commercially, the success of the Scorsese project could be limited.

However, the project is already pre-ordained with award favorability despite not being released yet. Only time will tell how well the movie favors in theaters, but even if it doesn’t make a profit, it’s sure to rake in a ton of nominations.

Killers of the Flower Moon will hit theaters on its new release date of October 20 before it inevitably debuts on Apple TV.
