Apple is making a big move into the movie world. They’re starting with a new film by Martin Scorsese called “Killers of the Flower Moon.” Apple plans to spend $1 billion every year on big movies. This starts soon with Scorsese’s movie, followed by Ridley Scott’s “Napoleon” and then Matthew Vaughn’s “Argylle.”
What is Apple’s New Plan?
This month, something exciting is happening. Apple TV+ is bringing “Killers of the Flower Moon” to movie theaters everywhere. This move by Apple could change how we think about movies and where we watch them.
The Scorsese film, which had a budget of around $250 million, is set to be shown in a massive 10,000 theaters globally starting October 20th. To make this happen, Apple is teaming up with Paramount, a big movie company, to help with the distribution.
Here’s an interesting twist: you won’t find this movie on Apple TV+ for the first 45 days. This decision by Apple highlights their belief in the magic of the theater experience. It’s a different approach compared to companies like Netflix.
Now, even if “Flower Moon” doesn’t attract huge crowds (it’s predicted to earn about $34 million in the beginning), it can still be a success for Apple. Here’s how:
- If more people decide to subscribe to Apple TV+.
- If top movie directors and producers choose to work with Apple for their next big projects.
- And if Apple maintains its strong reputation for delivering quality (“Flower Moon” is even being talked about as an award contender).
It’s worth noting that Apple isn’t short on cash. They’re one of the richest companies out there. For them, making movies isn’t just about the money. It’s a way to show they’re at the top of their game.
With all this in mind, movie lovers have a lot to look forward to. Here’s hoping Apple continues to bring us great films.
