Second Trailer for 'Killers of the Flower Moon' Intensifies Violence and Explosive Scenes

Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro star in Martin Scorsese's new film.

In the thrilling new trailer for Martin Scorsese's upcoming film, "Killers of the Flower Moon," Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro captivate audiences with their scheming, seductive, and ultimately deadly performances.

While the ongoing Barbie vs. Oppenheimer debate continues to dominate movie discussions, it's important not to overlook the approaching awards season. As the summer blockbuster season winds down, paving the way for fall's prestigious releases, studios are gearing up to unveil their potential award-winning films in the final months of the year.

Mark your calendars for October 20th, as it marks the highly anticipated release of Martin Scorsese's "Killers of the Flower Moon," a film that can be considered the flagship of the awards season. Based on David Grann's bestselling book, this adaptation boasts the talent of one of our most revered filmmakers, Martin Scorsese, and reunites two of his frequent collaborators, Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio, who last worked together in "This Boy's Life" (1993) and "Marvin's Room" (1996).

The screenplay, penned by Eric Roth and Martin Scorsese, brings Grann's gripping narrative to life. The story revolves around a series of murders that take place within the newly oil-rich Osage nation in 1920s Oklahoma. As the official synopsis reveals, the Osage people suddenly find themselves among the wealthiest individuals in the world overnight. Leonardo DiCaprio takes on the role of Ernest Burkhardt, a suspect in the murders, while Jesse Plemmons portrays FBI agent Tom White, who arrives in town to investigate the crimes.

During the early stages of production, Scorsese and DiCaprio made a conscious decision to avoid falling into the trap of creating a "white-savior western." As a result, they shifted the focus of the film, with DiCaprio taking on the role of the suspect, Ernest Burkhardt. Native American actress Lily Gladstone, who hails from the Blackfeet reservation in Montana, delivers a standout performance as Burkhardt's wife, Mollie. Her portrayal has already garnered significant awards buzz following the film's premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May.

In a departure from his usual roles, Robert De Niro portrays William Hale, Burkhardt's uncle and a wealthy rancher with a corrupt hold on local power. Hale manipulates his nephew, enlisting him in a scheme to exploit the newfound wealth of the Osage people. DiCaprio explains the complexity of his character's relationships, stating, "The biggest challenge became pulling off the trick of not making this a mystery [like the book], but exposing Ernest early on for who he is and then watching this very twisted relationship unravel. Not only with Mollie, but also with De Niro's character as well. That wasn't easy and it took years to figure out."

With a powerhouse cast, a gripping storyline, and the masterful direction of Martin Scorsese, "Killers of the Flower Moon" promises to be a captivating and thought-provoking film that will leave audiences on the edge of their seats. As the countdown to awards season begins, this highly-anticipated release is sure to make a lasting impact in the world of cinema.
