If you’ve read David Grann’s book, Killers of the Flower Moon, then you know it unfolds as a murder mystery, a procedural, and a historical text. Those things don’t always go together well as a feature film, so Martin Scorsese and writer Eric Roth have put the bulk of the focus on the married couple at the center of the murders, played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Lily Gladstone.
In the new clip, we see DiCaprio as Ernest Burkhart and Gladstone as his eventual wife, Mollie, a Native American woman whose family is hit hard by the killings of wealthy Osage members on oil-rich land in 1920s Oklahoma. But in this scene, Ernest is still trying to impress Mollie in hopes of winning her heart. She isn’t easy to impress, though.
Also starring Robert DeNiro, Jesse Plemons, Tantoo Cardinal, John Lithgow, Brendan Fraser, and Cara Jade Myers. JaNae Collins, Jillian Dion, Jason Isbell, and William Belleau, Killers of the Flower Moon hits theaters on October 20th, followed by Apple TV+ at an unspecified date.
