First look: The Irishman

irishman 1The first trailer for Martin Scorsese’s much-hyped new film The Irishman has arrived.

Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci star in the film, which is an epic saga of organised crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century.

Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organised crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.

The film’s cast also includes ¬†Harvey Keitel, Ray Romano, Bobby Cannavale, Anna Paquin, and Stephen Graham.

The film will be released in cinemas and on Netflix this autumn.
