It’s been nearly three years since “The Irishman” debuted at the New York Film Festival, when it was hailed as a late-period masterpiece by Martin Scorsese. Since then, audiences have been waiting for “Killers of the Flower Moon,” which has Scorsese directing his and Eric Roth’s adaptation of a David Grann non-fiction bestseller about the mysterious murders of Osage Nation members over their oil wealth. Production wrapped last October, suggesting that a fall 2022 awards push might follow.

Nah. Yesterday came word that “Killers of the Flower Moon” definitely won’t be released until 2023. Since distributors Apple and Paramount never gave the film a date, you can’t say that it was pushed — especially since Scorsese is renowned for his exacting editing processes. (Check out the video below that gives a taste of his working method with legendary collaborator, editor Thelma Schoonmaker.) Cannes 2023 now looks like a logical goal — that would make for a hell of an opening night — but Apple declined comment on its plans for the film.

The news does remove what would have been a major competitor among awards titles, a long list of potential Best Picture contenders that could include Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans,” Maria Schrader’s “She Said,” Chinonye Chukwu’s “Till,” Damien Chazelle’s “Babylon,” and several of the top titles announced in Competition at Venice: Andrew Dominik’s “Blonde,” Alejandro González Iñárritu’s “Bardo,” Florian Zeller’s “The Son,” and Martin McDonagh’s “The Banshees of Inisherin.”

“Killers of the Flower Moon” has particular cultural relevance in its story of the exploitation and trauma of an Indigenous community. Chief of the Osage Nation Geoffrey Standing Bear is a consultant on the film and has praised its approach to the story. It also represents the increasingly rare case of a movie for grownups with a $200 million budget. Leonardo DiCaprio, originally set to play the lead FBI investigator, instead stepped aside, at his own suggestion, in order to play the nephew of Robert De Niro’s antagonist. The FBI role went to Jesse Plemons.

With “CODA” triumphing at the 2022 Academy Awards, Apple became the first streaming service to win Best Picture. “Killers of the Flower Moon” in 2023 reduces Apple’s 2022-23 awards-season prospects. Its fall lineup includes likely TIFF premiere “The Greatest Beer Run Ever,” the first film by Peter Farrelly since his Best Picture-winning “Green Book” starring Zac Efron, Russell Crowe, and Bill Murray; Lila Neugebauer’s Jennifer Lawrence and Brian Tyree Henry drama “Causeway;” and Rodrigo Garcia’s Ewan McGregor and Ethan Hawke comedy-drama “Raymond and Ray.” Reginald Hudlin’s Sidney Poitier documentary could make an impact on the doc race.

Production on “Killers of the Flower Moon” started in April 2021, after being delayed for a year due to Covid. Since then, we’ve had to make do with a first-look photo released that May. But we have to believe that good things come to those who wait.

The 1985-born boxing superstar is one of the most fearsome punchers the sport of boxing has ever seen. Deontay Wilder’s boxing record consists of 43 wins – 42 of which have come via knockout. The only man to go the distance with ‘The Bronze Bomber’ was Bermane Stiverne, who Wilder then knocked out in a round in their rematch.

Deontay Wilder has reportedly earned a total sum of around $95 million in his professional boxing career from his debut up to now. This is right up there with the likes of heavyweight rivals Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, and is more than the likes of Ryan Garcia, Gervonta Davis and Terence Crawford.

The 1985-born boxing phenom’s biggest endorsement deal as of today is his partnership with Everlast. Wilder has shown great loyalty to Everlast for several years during his boxing career, and still sports their boxing gear to this day. He also regularly uses Everlast boxing gloves in the ring for his world title fights, as well as during training camps.
