What is the Killers of the Flower Moon release date? A new Martin Scorsese crime drama is right on the horizon. Based on a novel, it is one of the most exciting upcoming releases of 2023.
The new movie, which will star Leonardo DiCaprio, Brendan Fraser, and Robert De Niro (what a cast) is anticipated to be one of the best movies of the year. And, as with any Martin Scorsese movie, its release comes with a lot of justified hype. After all, Scorsese is an Oscars veteran and the director of many of the best thriller movies ever made.
So, with that in mind, here’s what we know about the Killers of the Flower Moon release date, cast, plot, and much more.

Killers of the Flower Moon plot
The Killers of the Flower Moon plot is based on the 2017 novel of the same name. The plot of the movie explores a series of murders of people from the Osage Native American tribe in the 1920s.
From there, a complex story unfolds relating to oil deposits underneath Osage land, and the money that the Osage people are owed for selling the oil from the deposits. It also follows the newly formed FBI as it investigates the murders, and the subsequent trial of the suspected murderer.
