Martin Scorsese’s Killers Of The Flower Moon is going bigger at the box office thanks to a revised agreement between Apple and Paramount. 

Well, here’s some welcome news. The Hollywood Reporter is stating that Martin Scorsese’s highly-anticipated next feature film, Killers Of The Flower Moon, will be getting a wider theatrical run that was first planned. The original plan was for the film to get a limited theatrical run earlier in October before releasing on Apple’s streaming platform on October 20th.

However, it seems like Warner Bros’ decision to push Dune: Part II back to March of next year may have altered Apple and Paramount’s game plan, as the Dune sequel’s sudden postponement has left a blockbuster-sized gap in the early November schedule, not to mention a juicy number of IMAX screens with little to play.

As such, it has been announced that Scorsese’s next film will debut on October 20th with a much wider ‘global theatrical release’, including an IMAX run. For those of you who may have struggled to track down a local screening of Scorsese’s The Irishman back in 2019 when Netflix gave it a very limited theatrical release, this will make for happy reading, doubly so if you’e lucky enough to live near to an IMAX screen. Whilst the delay of Dune: Part II still stings somewhat, this news goes some way towards making up for it.

The period drama starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jesse Plemons, Lily Gladstone and Robert De Niro ‘takes place in 1920s Oklahoma and depicts a string of brutal murders of Osage Nation Native Americans, which came to be known as the Reign of Terror. The Osage Nation, who were the richest people per capita in the world, were killed one by one after oil was discovered on their land. As the death toll rose, the newly-created FBI took up the case and unraveled a chilling conspiracy and one of the most monstrous crimes in American history.’

The film also stars the likes of John Lithgow, Brendan Fraser, Cara Jade Myers, JaNae Collins, Jillian Dion, Tatanka Means, William Belleau, Scott Shepherd and Tantoo Cardinal. You can catch the trailer below, ahead of the film’s release on October 20th.
