Trailer for Martin Scorsese's The Irishman, starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci, finally drops.
Netflix has unveiled the trailer for the highly anticipated Martin Scorsese movie, The Irishman. The movie follows the life of World War II veteran-turned-hitman Frank Sheeran (played by Robert De Niro) as he recalls his relationship with friend and union leader Jimmy Hoffa (Al Pacino).
Earlier this week it was revealed that the movie will receive its world premiere on September 27, at the New York Film Festival.
Here’s the official trailer launched on Wednesday:
The film, which has been in development for nearly a decade, has been described as a “passion project” for veteran director Martin Scorsese, who won the 2007 Best Director Oscar for "The Departed."
Hoffa, played by Pacino, disappeared in 1975. This was put down to the notorious Teamster’s mob dealings. He was declared dead, in absentia, in 1982.
The star-studded cast, which includes a number of frequent Scorsese collaborators, also includes Joe Pesci as Russell Bufalino, Harvey Keitel, Bobby Cannavale, Anna Paquin, and Ray Romano. The film boasts a whopping $160 million budget.
