The film killed it.
Martin Scorsese’s brand-new film “Killers of the Flower Moon” received a nine-minute standing ovation during the movie’s world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival Saturday.
Scorsese, 80, was joined at the screening by fellow cast members Leonardo DiCaprio, 48, Robert De Niro,79, and Lily Gladstone, 36, reports Deadline.
The nearly three and half hour film — which was adapted from David Grann’s book of the same name — is set in Oklahoma during the 1920s and depicts the serial murders of members of the oil-wealthy Osage Nation, which was later dubbed the Reign of Terror and led to the formation of the FBI.
The Post reached out to Scorsese for comment.
“It’s taken its time to come around, but Apple did so great by us, shooting out there … there was lots of grass — I’m a New Yorker,” said the “Goodfellas” director in a post-film speech. “We also lived in that world with the Osage, we really did, and we really miss it.”
The “Wolf of Wall Street” director also thanked the crowd saying ” “I don’t think I’ve ever experienced [anything] like this.”
One early review of the film called it “Leonard DiCaprio’s best performance yet.”
“The dignity and care for the Osage perspective was genuine and honest throughout the process and the Osage responded with the kind of passion and enthusiasm that met this historic moment,” praised former Osage tribal leader Jim Gray.
“For those of us who were watching from the sidelines while our best and brightest among us auditioned, sewed, catered, painted, acted and advised the filmmakers, it’s going to be hard not to feel our presence in helping to tell.”
Scorsese’s film was not the only movie to make it into the headlines.
Harrison Ford’s digitally de-aged face made a long-awaited appearance during the world premiere of “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.”
Former “Pirates of the Caribbean” star Johnny Depp also made an appearance to promote his brand-new film “Jeanne Du Barry” and received a seven-minute standing ovation due to his portrayal of King Louis XV.
In a press conference for the film, Depp slammed Tinseltown saying the industry “boycotted” him during his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard.
“Killers of the Flower Moon” is set to have a limited release on Oct. 6, 2023 before being released nationwide on Oct. 20.
