‘Killers of The Flower Moon’ starring Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio receives riotous ovation at its Cannes premiere.

Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, and Leonardo DiCaprio have been working together for a long time, and their films continue to be magical.

The premiere of their most recent film, the true-crime thriller Killers of the Flower Moon,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, took place on Saturday at the opulent Cannes Film Festival. The post-screening response was immediately stunning, garnering a minutes-long standing ovation.

According to a video uploaded to the Cannes Film Festival’s YouTube site, the crowd at the Grande Theatre Lumiere enthusiastically applauded the film for at least seven minutes before Scorsese acknowledged them.

Scorese remarked, “Thank you to the Osage,” adding, “everyone connected with the picture – my old pals Bob, Leo, all of us together,” and he called the experience of making the movie “very alive.”

DiCaprio, De Niro, and Lily Gladstone, who were all present at the premiere, received greater ovations and clapping. “Killers” also stars Jesse Plemons, Tantoo Cardinal, Cara Jade Myers, JaNae Collins, and Jillian Dion.

The movie, which is based on the best-selling book by David Grann, is a true-crime account “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 three and a half-hour movie, which had its Cannes debut outside of competition, is Scorsese’s first attempt into the Western subgenre. Positive feedback has been given to it thus far.

On October 6, a restricted release of the movie will be released, followed by a general release on October 20. After its theatrical debut, it will be accessible for streaming on Apple TV+ as well.
