‘The Irishman’ Trailer: See Robert De Niro and Al Pacino in Martin Scorsese’s Movie on Netflix

When you see such names as Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino and find out they are involved in one movie, it’s hard to overestimate the expectations. Perhaps that’s why ‘The Irishman’ movie is already called Netflix’s biggest original films to date.

The film stars Robert De Niro as mob hitman Frank Sheeran and Al Pacino as Jimmy Hoffa.

It’s an adaptation of Charles Brandt’s 2004 book I Heard You Paint Houses, which is about the life of Sheeran, a World War II veteran who becomes a mob hitman for the Bufalino crime family. The trailer introduces Sheeran as he meets Jimmy Hoffa, the president of the Teamsters, and as he goes about on his work.

The Irishman is slated to premiere at the New York Film Festival in September, with a streaming debut sometime thereafter.
