Martin Scorsese has reportedly locked the runtime of Killers Of The Flower Moon, at just shy of three and a half hours.

There was much lively debate and discussion earlier this month when reports surfaced of Martin Scorsese’s next film Killers Of The Flower Moon being over four hours in length. Some argued that, being Martin Scorsese, his film can be as long as he wants and people will still want to see it. While that is true, there were those that argued that perhaps he is being given too much creative freedom. Not sure who those people were, mind.

Either way, Scorsese has now reportedly locked the picture, with the runtime now coming in at a slightly shorter (but no less epic) three hours and twenty six minutes.

The period drama “is set in 1920s Oklahoma and depicts the serial murder of members of the oil-wealthy Osage Nation, a string of brutal crimes that came to be known as the Reign of Terror. The result was the formation of the FBI”.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Jesse Plemons, Lily Gladstone and Robert De Niro star in the film, Scorsese directed from a script he adapted with Eric Roth from the book of the same name by David Grann.

Killers Of The Flower Moon will be released in cinemas in October before streaming globally on Apple TV+.
