Watch the brand new trailer below:
Here’s the full synopsis:
Frank Sheeran is a World War 2 veteran and a former hitman for the mob. His time spent during the war in Italy made him a talented killer. To make ends meet, Frank utilizes his skills to become a hitman for the mob. Now in his old age, Frank reflects back on the moments and hits that defined his mob career. Especially his role in the disappearance of his old friend Jimmy Hoffa, a former president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters that went missing in 1975, never to be seen again.
When we talk about cinema it doesn’t get much bigger than Martin Scorsese, Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel. Legends all who have worked in some of the biggest and most important films of all time and who now are bringing to life this monumental mob story.
Budgeted at over $200 million dollars, The Irishman is Scorsese’s most expensive film to date, and employs state of the art digital technology to showcase the evolution of DeNiro’s Frank Sheeran from a young G.I. who finds a talent for killing in World War II, before returning to America where he builds a life with the mob and their illegal involvement with The Teamsters. Key to this is the partnership between Sheeran and Jimmy Hoffa, played by Al Pacino, and it’s a relationship that would lead to one of the biggest mysteries of all time.
Scorsese is really going for it here, and this first trailer really grabs you by the throat with its hard hitting approach that explodes with the power of .45 snub nose. The Irishman ain’t gonna be a friendly picture and they’ll be plenty of blood split before the credits close.
The Irishman will arrive in cinemas for a limited run before it heads to Netflix later this year.
