The official trailer for Netflix and Martin Scorsese’s latest gangster film, The Irishman, has been released. Premiering earlier this evening via The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the trailer follows Robert De Niro’s Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran as he enters into the world of painting houses for labor union activist and organized crime lord Jimmy Hoffa (played by Al Pacino). The new trailer reveals a variety of details surrounding the timeline of Sheeran’s life, with a rather hilarious conversation between Sheeran and Bill Bufalino (played by Ray Romano) intercut throughout.
Before the world premiere of the trailer, Fallon noted that the film boasts “everything you want in a Scorsese film,” noting the cast’s immense chemistry between one another, as well as calling De Niro’s performance a “tour de force.” As previously shared, the film is set to revolve around Charles Brandt’s I Hear You Paint Houses memoir, which chronicles the life of Frank Sheeran—an alleged mafia hitman—as he enters into the crime sphere of the Bufalino family and Jimma Hoffa following his time as an infantryman during World War II. The film sees the return to acting for longtime Scorsese collaborator Joe Pesci, as well as enlisting Harvey Keitel, Bobby Cannavale, and more.
Check out the official trailer for The Irishman above. Alongside the trailer’s release, the nighttime show has also shared a variety of interview clips (viewable below) with De Niro as he shares details surrounding the film. The film hits select theaters on November 1, with Netflix accounts gaining access on November 27.
