Although Martin Scorsese did not include an intermission in "Killers of the Flower Moon,"
this hasn't stopped some theaters from adding one, sparking a discussion about whether or not long films should have built-in breaks.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Lily Gladstone, and Robert De Niro starred in the critically acclaimed film,
which debuted on October 20 both internationally and in US theaters. It was based on the same-titled nonfiction book.
At 206 minutes, it's one of the longest blockbusters that has been released in the past year.
After the running lengths of "The Batman," "Avatar: The Way of Water," "Babylon," and "Oppenheimer" exceeded three hours, it appears that moviegoers, or at least theater operators, have taken action.
European theater chain UCI Cinemas confirmed to the outlet that the movie is paused for six minutes in almost all of its locations, and UK chain Vue has scheduled screenings with a fifteen-minute
intermission, similar to what is provided for musicals and stage plays.
