Where to Watch Killers of the Flower Moon: Is it Streaming or Theatrical?
Martin Scorsese’s epic drama ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ is officially scheduled for theatrical release in the USA on October 20, 2023, by Paramount Pictures and Apple Studios. After its official theatrical window, it will become available for streaming on Apple TV+ in the USA. With a premium subscription priced at $6.99 per month, users will be able to watch it digitally after its theatrical release.
As per the available information, ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’s streaming schedule remains flexible, contingent upon its performance during its theatrical exhibition. The duration of the theatrical window will likely be influenced by the film’s box office success. A strong showing in theaters could result in an extended window of 80-90 days. Conversely, if the film underperforms, there may be a shorter window of 45 or 60 days to recoup costs and attract viewers to Apple TV.
Initial reports from critics and media outlets have been highly favorable, bolstering the film’s prospects for a successful theatrical run. Some industry insiders even compare its potential to the success of “Oppenheimer.” In such a scenario, probably, the film won’t become available for streaming until after a substantial 80-90-day window in theaters.
The response the film is receiving is very positive, and it’s evident that with its stellar cast and director, it is poised to become a cinematic masterpiece. In our view, a film of this caliber deserves to be experienced on the big screen rather than through streaming. The buzz surrounding the film is undeniably strong, and it is poised to captivate audiences both in theaters and on streaming platforms, winning hearts in both realms.
