Story highlights

Martin Scorsese’s ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ is based on the book of the same name by David Grann. The film revolves around the investigation of a series of murders and killings of wealthy Osage people in Osage County, Oklahoma in the early 1920s, after oil was discovered on their land.

Martin Scorsese’s ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ first official posters made their way on the internet Monday and we can’t help but wonder what’s on Leonardo DiCaprio’s mind as he looks intently at something while Lily Gladstone looks at him warmly. 

The first look from the upcoming crime-drama was released by AppleTV. Lily Gladstone can be seen sitting with Leonardo DiCaprio on a dining table as he looks unfazed and in his own thoughts.

While Lily Gladstone plays Mollie Burkhart, an Osage woman and heir to one such fortune, Leonardo DiCaprio dons the role of a white man Ernest Burkhart, nephew of powerful rancher William Hale (Robert De Niro), who wants to acquire his side of Oklahoma.
