Killers of the Flower Moon is out today in cinemas around Australia.
The latest film from Martin Scorsese is hitting cinemas with a rave 90 Metacritic as of publishing and universal praise for all the performances in the film, but especially for Lily Gladstone, who plays Mollie Kyle and Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays Ernest Burkhart.
Check out the final trailer for Killers of the Flower Moon below.
Apple has provided seven facts you may not know about Killers of the Flower Moon to share for today’s release of the film.
- “Killers of the Flower Moon” is a true crime thriller based on one of the earliest homicide cases the FBI ever took on when the organisation was first created by J. Edward Hoover.
- Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro and Lily Gladstone all learned to speak Osage for the film.
- While Martin Scorsese has collaborated with Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio on 16 films, this is the first time all three have worked together on the same picture – and it’s the first time in 30 years that Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro have acted in a film together, after their first collaboration in “This Boy’s Life.”
- This is Martin Scorsese’s 21st feature film collaboration with editor Thelma Schoonmaker. Their working relationship has spanned 7 decades, and Thelma is the only woman to ever receive three Oscars in the Editing category (“Raging Bull,” “The Aviator” and “The Departed”).
- The film’s director of photography, Rodrigo Prieto, served as cinematographer for three music videos for superstar Taylor Swift – “The Man,” “Cardigan” and “Willow.”
- Paul Thomas Anderson suggested Jack Fisk to Scorsese for this project after collaborating with him on “There Will Be Blood,” which also takes place in the 1920s. Fisk builds his sets from scratch rather than utilising soundstages or computer generated models: both Hale’s house and Mollie’s “country” house were built from the ground up.
- The character that Jesse Plemons plays, Tom White, was an actual Texas Ranger and one of the only FBI agents that J. Edgar Hoover allowed to wear a cowboy hat.
