Apple has confirmed that one of the biggest movie events of the year will take place on January 12, as arrives on Apple TV Plus.

"Following its widely acclaimed and award-winning global theatrical run, Apple Original Films today announced that Martin Scorsese's Critics Choice and Golden Globe Award-nominated feature, “Killers of the Flower Moon,” will be available to stream globally on Apple TV+ beginning Friday, January 12," the company said in a press release. 

The film, directed by Martin Scorsese, stars the potent combination of Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro, alongside Lily Gladstone, Jesse Plemons, Tantoo Cardinal, Cara Jade Myers, JaNae Collins and Jillian Dion.

A hit with the critics

Killers of the Flower Moon has a 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which describes its critics' consensus as "Enormous in runtime, theme, and achievement, Killers of the Flower Moon is a sobering appraisal of America's relationship with Indigenous peoples and yet another artistic zenith for Martin Scorsese and his collaborators." 

The movie has been nominated for 12 Critics Choice Awards alongside 7 Golden Globes and has already won the American Film Institute's list of Motion Pictures of the Year. Other accolades include shortlists for several Oscars and selection for the No. 1 Best Film of 2023 by The New York Times and The New Yorker.

In an age where streaming services like Netflix and Amazon are cutting shows and pushing ads onto its platforms, Apple TV Plus remains one of the only true streaming services out there. With an affordable monthly subscription, a plethora of great original content, and a growing library, it's a better offering than ever before.
