killers of the flower moon production update

Despite the pandemic, Martin Scorsese is hard at work on Killers of the Flower Moon, his upcoming film that reunites him with both Robert De Niro and Leonardo DiCaprio. Based on the book by David Grann, Killers of the Flower Moon tells the true story of how wealthy members of the Osage Nation were murdered in Osage County, Oklahoma in the early 1920s. Killers of the Flower Moon has suffered from some delays due to the pandemic and from original studio Paramount balking at the film’s budget. On top of that, Scorsese said in a recent interview that he was worried he had lost some of his spark following work on The Irishamn. But in a recent interview, the filmmaker says he’s already deeply engrossed in the pre-production work – a statement that comes with news that the film is gearing up for a seven-month shoot.

The Shawshank Redemption Honest Trailer

The Shawshank Redemption may be a beloved drama that you’ll watch every single time it’s playing on AMC, TNT or whatever cable channel is playing it on a lazy Sunday afternoon. But as the Honest Trailer for the film from Frank Darabont reminds us, when it arrived on the big screen in September 1994, the movie only earned $16 million in its initial theatrical release. Meanwhile, Forrest Gump was in the middle of an insane 42-week theatrical run. Just like Andy Dufresne, the movie had to trek through a lot of shit on its way to redemption as an Oscar nominee.
