Martin Scorsese has brought back together some of the greatest actors of all time for his latest film, The Irishman. Oscar winners Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci are together as mobsters all vying for their way. The film has now had its official trailer released, and Scorsese fans are viewing it with interest.
The Irishman trailer has been released on YouTube and via the Netflix social media accounts, as it has been produced for distribution by the channel.
The film has been hotly anticipated since it was announced as Scorsese’s next film in 2014, with Hollywood heavyweights De Niro, Pacino and Pesci all signing up within a month of the announcement.
There are a number of trailers currently available to be watched, but the latest is the first full length that gives a flavour of the tone of the movie.

The Irishman is based on a memoir, I Heard You Paint Houses, by former investigator Charles Brandt.
In this memoir, Brandt chronicles the life of Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, an alleged mafia hitman who confesses the crimes he committed while working for the Bufalino crime family.
Sheeran was born in 1920 in Pennsylvania, and enlisted in the army at age 21, where he claims he did 411 days of combat duty.
