Martin Scorsese’s movie Killers of the Flower Moon released in theaters first before its eventual streaming release. Here is how and when to watch it.
- Killers of the Flower Moon had a wide theatrical release on October 20, 2023, with a record number of screens.
- The movie made over $150 million at the box office worldwide.
- It is now available for streaming on Apple TV+ after a 84-day gap from its theatrical release.
There are several ways to watch Killers of the Flower Moon depending on when and how viewers want to see Martin Scorsese’s movie. The legendary director and proponent of the cinematic experience in theaters made headlines once it was announced that Killers of the Flower Moon was being made through Apple TV+. The streaming service stepped up to fund the $200 million epic at a time when traditional movie studios and competitor streamers did not want to finance Scorsese’s follow-up to The Irishman. This has not stopped anticipation from being sky-high for the latest Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio movie.
While Killers of the Flower Moon is not the first of Martin Scorsese’s movies to be produced by a streaming service, how Apple would handle the movie’s release compared to Netflix and The Irishman was unclear. Netflix only gave Scorsese’s movie a limited theatrical release before pushing it to the streamer one month later. Apple is aiming to give audiences options to choose the best way to watch Killers of the Flower Moon. There are multiple different avenues for viewers to check out Martin Scorsese’s new movie, including in theaters and at home.
Killers Of The Flower Moon Released In Theaters On October 20, 2023
The best way to watch Killers of the Flower Moon is with its theatrical release. Apple gave the historical drama/thriller a chance to play in theaters exclusively before it found a home on a streaming service. Killers of the Flower Moon was released on October 20, 2023, as part of the movie’s wide theatrical rollout, which included a record-setting number of screens for a Martin Scorsese movie. The expansive rollout included the option to see Killers of the Flower Moon in IMAX, giving moviegoers the chance to see the crime drama on the biggest screen possible.
Killers of the Flower Moon made over $150 million at the box office worldwide.
Killers Of The Flower Moon Is Now Streaming On Apple TV+
Following the theatrical release, Killers of the Flower Moon is now streaming on Apple TV+. Apple waited months to reveal when subscribers would have the opportunity to stream Scorsese’s movie, and it was difficult to predict the release date as it was Apple’s first movie released in theaters. Killers of the Flower Moon debuted on Apple TV+ on January 12, 2024, nearly three months after its theatrical debut. The 84-day gap between theatrical and streaming releases is right in line with how some other studios handle similar situations.
