LEONARDO DiCaprio's fans are saying the actor looks "unrecognizable"in the first image of the new Martin Scorsese film Killers of the Flower Moon.
The highly anticipated movie currently has no release date after being delayed over a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Apple released the first look at the upcoming film, which shows the A-lister sitting alongside actress Lily Gladstone.
The stars will play Ernest and Mollie Burkhart, a white man and an Osage woman who find themselves falling in love in Oklahoma during the early 20th century.
However, some fans noted that the Titanic star didn't really look like himself, as one person wrote: "Are you telling me this is Leonardo DiCaprio?"
Another added: "That's Leo?! He's hardly recognizable!!! Wow!" while one chimed in, "no way that's him…"
Other fans were on the opposite side of the fence, as one user commented, "Anyone who looks at this picture will instantly recognize him."
One person joked: "If he's the one on the left, I'm impressed. Also impressed with how they made the actor on the right look exactly like Leonardo DiCaprio."
The film is based on David Grann's best-selling book of the same name, a nonfiction work which focuses on the Osage Nation murders which occurred in the 1920s and saw Native Americans murdered for oil.
"To be able to tell this story on the land where these events took place is incredibly important and critical to allowing us to portray an accurate depiction of the time and people," director Martin previously said.
He added: "We’re excited to start working with our local cast and crew to bring this story to life on screen and immortalize a time in American history that should not be forgotten.”
Leonardo, 46, won't be the only big time notable in the film, as Robert De Niro is also a part of the cast.
This isn't the only film on Leonardo's slate, as he will also lead Netflix's Don't Look Up alongside another heavy hitter: Jennifer Lawrence.
Back in February, Jennifer, 30, was injured after glass exploded in her face & hit her eye on set as production for the new movie was temporarily shut down.
Jennifer and Leonardo are set to play two astronomers who take it upon themselves to set out on a media tour to let the public know that a meteor will crash on earth in six months.
