As part of the 91st Academy Awards broadcast tonight, Netflix released the first teaser trailer for its upcoming mobster movie The Irishman from Martin Scorsese. It doesn’t contain any footage, sadly, but we hear the voices of some of the characters, including Robert de Niro.
De Niro plays Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, who supposedly had links to the mob and was said to be involved in the disappearance of union boss Jimmy Hoffa in the ’70s. Al Pacino will play Hoffa. The movie also stars Anna Paquin, Ray Romano, Joe Pesci, and Harvey Keitel. It’s based on the Charles Brandt book “I Hear You Paint Houses.” You can watch the trailer in the video embedded above.
Scorsese is a Hollywood legend who is known for his mobster movies. He won an Oscar for the Boston mafia movie The Departed, while he is also known for Goodfellas, Casino, Gangs of New York, and Mean Streets.
While The Irishman is a Netflix movie, it’s also coming to theatres when it releases sometime this fall. For more on the 91st Academy Awards, check out GameSpot’s roundup of winners.
