The first trailer for The Irishman dropped during The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night.
The first look at Martin Scorsese’s Netflix film The Irishman finally gives us a look at the film’s characters with Robert De Niro as mob enforcer Frank Sheeran, Joe Pesci as the ruthless crime syndicate boss Russell Bufalino, and Al Pacino’s Jimmy Hoffa.
The film follows Sheeran from his mid-20s to his 80s with the aid of de-aging visual effects technology.
De Niro told Fallon: “They didn’t want it to get in our way. And Marty didn’t want that … They had all kinds of cameras taking pictures, a special camera photographing us,” De Niro said of the de-aging process.
The long-gestating passion project for Scorsese was written by screenwriter Steven Zaillia (Schindler’s List, Gangs of New York). It also stars Ray Romano, Bobby Cannavale, Anna Paquin, and Jesse Plemons.
The Irishman is coming to Netflix on November 27.
