Scorsese Unveils New Trailer for Gangster Period Piece ‘The Irishman’

Scorsese's new film will premiere in theaters on Nov. 1, and will stream on Netflix starting Nov. 27.

The new trailer for Martin Scorsese’s much-anticipated film “The Irishman” just dropped, and it appears the $140 million picture will bring the drama, wit and Shakespearean-style tragedy that defined his previous gangster period pieces.

It stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel and Anna Paquin, and centers around organized crime and politics in post-war America.

It’s told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran (played by De Niro), a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century.

Spanning decades, the film chronicles the disappearance of union boss Jimmy Hoffa (played by Pacino).

Pesci portrays crime boss Russell Bufalino.

“The Irishman” is based on the 2004 memoir “I Heard You Paint Houses” by Charles Brandt.

The film is due out on Netflix on Nov. 27.
