There’s been a lot of controversy about the length of Martin Scorsese’s upcoming film, Killers of the Flower Moon, with many of the same people who regularly praise 150-minute comic book films complaining that Scorsese shouldn’t be allowed to devote over 3 hours and 26 minutes to telling the story of the Osage murders. You can probably already guess from my tone that I have no problem with the idea of watching a 206-minute Martin Scorsese film.
The trailer for Killers of the Flower Moon was released earlier today. (The film itself will be premiering at Cannes in just a few more days.) The trailer looks great, with Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio appearing to be in fine form. (Reportedly, the film’s hero is played by Jesse Plemons but he’s barely glimpsed in the trailer. It makes sense, of course. For a lot of people, one of the main attractions of Killers of the Flower Moon will be a chance to see Scorsese’s two regular leading men, DiCaprio and De Niro in the same film. Yes, I know about This Boy’s Life but come on, that was Michael Caton-Jones. This is Scorsese!) Can you find the wolves in this picture?
