A report on Cannes confirming the inclusion of Martin Scorsese’s upcoming period drama-thriller “Killers of the Flower Moon” over at Variety has indicated that the film “runs nearly 4 hours”.
Previously reports suggested the film clocked in at 200 minutes (3hrs 20mins) but this would suggest it runs longer. Either way, it certainly fits in with Scorsese’s work of late with “The Irishman” coming in at 209 minutes, “Silence” at 161 minutes, and “The Wolf of Wall Street” at 180 minutes.
It caps off a lot of film runtime talk in recent weeks as several films set to hit this Spring and Summer are clocking closer to the three-hour mark than the usual two.
Ari Aster’s new A24 film “Beau is Afraid” starring Joaquin Phoenix is confirmed to run 179 minutes. Matt Damon has indicated Chris Nolan’s “Oppenheimer” runs a straight three hours (180 minutes).
Paramount’s Global President Bob Bakish indicated earlier this month that “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One” is coming in long, suggesting it will be longer than the 148-minute runtime of “Mission: Impossible – Fallout”.
Over at Marvel, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” should run ‘about’ 149 minutes according to a James Gunn tweet, whilst a CinemaCon listing for “The Flash” screening next month at the event indicates it too clocks in around two-and-a-half hours.
All follow last weekend’s box-office champ “John Wick: Chapter 4” which came in at 169 minutes theatrically after being whittled down from an initial cut of 225 minutes.
That’s not to say everything is going long. “Fast X” reportedly comes in at a positively tight 130 minutes in comparison, whilst those after shorter fare should check out “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” at 92 minutes and “Evil Dead Rise” at 96 minutes.
