The full trailer for The Irishman is here. The long-awaited crime drama stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci, and is directed by Martin Scorsese. It’s set to hit the streaming service in November.
The Irishman tells the real-life story of Frank Sheeran, a union man who also allegedly worked as a contract killer. De Niro plays Sheeran, with Pacino as notorious union boss Jimmy Hoffa and Pesci as mobster Russell Bufalino. The new trailer shows how Sheeran works his way through Hoffa’s ranks, and, unlike last month’s first trailer, showcases the extensive de-aging technology used on the three main stars. Check it out below.
The Irishman also stars Ray Romano, Anna Paquin, Bobby Cannavale, Harvey Keitel, and Stephen Graham. It’s penned by by Steven Zaillian, who also wrote Schindler’s List, American Gangster, and David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The movie will receive a limited theatrical release from November 1, before it hits Netflix on November 27.
The extensive VFX work required to de-age the actors meant that the film required nearly two years of post-production. According to Deadline, the final budget is around $200 million, making it the most expensive movie of Scorsese’s career.
