After releasing the first images, Netflix has released The Irishman First Trailer. Martin Scorsese film goes old school mobster thriller, epic saga of organised crime in post-war America.
Robert De Niro leads the cast that gives the film that authentic old school feel with Al Pacino, Harvey Keitel and Joe Pesci also starring.
De Niro stars as War Veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and a hitman. The story is told through Franks eyes and possibly involved in the killing of Frank Hoffa. The film is based on Charles Brandt’s 2004 bestseller, I Heard You Paint Houses.
If you loved Samuel L.Jackson getting ‘De-Aged’ in Captain Marvel, De Niro and Pacino have gotten same treatment. All to get in line to play their younger characters. Being 79, the end result of the CGI Treatment looks impressive and the trailer slowly builds up to the surprise. Sheernan allegedly stated he was involved in the Bay Of Pigs and knew about JFK’s assassination plans. If these things are true we have an fascinating film on the cards. Or just enjoy De Niro, Pacino, Keitel, Pesci do what they do best be gangsters!
