Martin Scorsese’s first new movie since 2019

Martin Scorsese’s latest movie, Killers of the Flower Moon, finally has its first full trailer and it puts Ernest Burkhart (Leonardo DiCaprio) in the middle of an investigation of a series of brutal crimes. The movie is being produced by Apple TV Plus, but will be distributed in theaters first on Oct. 6, before eventually landing on the streaming platform.

The film follows Burkhart, and a variety of other characters in and around the Osage Nation as a series of brutal crimes are committed known as the Reign of Terror. Killers of the Flower Moon is based on a true crime book of the same name, written by David Grann.

Scorsese has been developing Killers of the Flower Moon since 2016. This is his first film since The Irishman, which was released in 2019. Killers of the Flower Moon is cowritten by Scorsese and Eric Roth (Dune) and also stars Jesse Plemons, Robert De Niro, Lily Gladstone, and Brendon Fraser.

Correction (May 19): The original version of this story misstated Leonardo DiCaprio’s character’s role in the film. The story has been updated to correct that.
