[Watch] The Irishman New Trailer: Unveiling A Quintessential Scorsese Film
Martin Scorsese has established himself over the years as the jack of all trades. Yet he’s mostly known for his ventures in the crime dramas such as ‘Goodfellas‘ or ‘Taxi Driver‘ or the ‘Mean Streets‘ from early in his career. Now that he has dealt with genres such as fantasy, romance, comedy, and period drama, he has returned to his roots with ‘The Irishman’. This Scorsese-directed film started creating a buzz from the moment it was announced. And it had every reason for his admirers to get excited. Not just the genre, but Scorsese has returned with his long-term collaborator-actor, Robert De Niro. After the initial 2-minute teaser, a new trailer for The Irishman was released on the occasion of its upcoming premiere at NYFF.
After the 1995 film ‘Casino’, the latest offering is the next collaboration between Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro. Apart from him, The Irishman also features Al Pacino- one of the most iconic figures from American cinema. And Scorsese’s previous collaborators like Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel are also a part of this Netflix film. The supporting cast also includes Ray Romano, Anna Paquin, and Bobby Cannavale.
From the clip, the makers have shared more footage from the film. It features comic elements apart from the director’s obvious proficiency over the crime genre. More dynamic and swift moments are introduced and the crackling dialogues make all of it seem even more enticing. The film is supposed to be about 3 hours and 30 minutes long and the fans can’t be more excited to witness this extravaganza on the big screens.
The film is based on the 2004 memoir ‘I Heard You Paint Houses’ by Charles Brandt and the screenplay is written by Steven Zaillian (Gangs of New York, Moneyball). De Niro plays Frank Sheeran, who’s looking back at his past experiences as a hitman. Being a World War II veteran turned mob hitman, he had a big hand in the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa (played by Al Pacino).
The Irishman is going to have its World Premiere at New York Film Festival (NYFF) after which it will hit the streaming service. It will also have its limited theatrical release afterward.
