Apple TV on Thursday released a trailer for the movie, "Killers of the Flower Moon."

Two years after Pawhuska transformed into a movie set, people there are getting excited once again. This time, they're getting a glimpse of what's to come when the movie comes out.

"Watching it all come together in real life. I'm super excited for it,” Funky Pearl Boutique owner, Billie Kelley said.

Kelley had a front row seat to the movie-making process, because her store sat right along the edge of the set, near the train. She'll never forget all of the activity Hollywood brought to Pawhuska.

"For us, in a small town, that was a lot of excitement for us. It brought a lot of people to town,” she said.

Osage Nation Chief Standing Bear is at the Cannes Film Festival, waiting for the movie premiere there this weekend.

The nation released this statement about the movie trailer:

In “Killers of the Flower Moon”.. The language you hear is taught by Osage Nation Language Teachers. The traditional Wahzhazhe clothing you see is made by Osage artists. The landscape is the Osage Nation Reservation. Today, approximately 26 percent of all headrights are owned by non-Osage individuals, churches, universities, and other non-Osage institutions who can freely bequeath such interests to any person or entity the non-Osage chooses. The Osage Minerals Council is currently seeking federal legislation to permit non-Osages who own a “headright” interest in the Osage Mineral Estate to gift or sell those headright interests back to the Osage Minerals Council, the Osage Nation, or Osage individuals. WE ARE NOT RELICS | The Osage Nation is thriving on our Reservation in Northeast Oklahoma - a people of strength, hope, and passion, honoring the stories of the past and building the world of the future. We are Wahzhazhe Always.

Brandi Wright, her mom and friends were in Pawhuska Thursday from out of town, surprised to learn the trailer came out, of all days, while they're here.

"We've read the book, so we've done that much,” Wright said.

"Hopefully this will kinda give everybody a good idea of what we got to see,” Kelley said.

Some parts of the movie were also filmed in the town of Fairfax, along with Tulsa and Bartlesville.
