Netflix's Announcement Teaser for Martin Scorsese's 'The Irishman'
"A Martin Scorsese Picture…" Netflix unveiled a very basic teaser during the Oscar ceremony for Scorsese's highly anticipated next film The Irishman, which is set to arrive in theaters sometime later this fall. This teaser has no footage from the film, just names and a flying CG bullet. They likely released this based on the fact that everyone keeps asking where the heck this film is, and they just wanted to say it's coming up this year still - and it's getting a theatrical release. The Irishman is about a mob hitman who recalls his possible involvement with the slaying of Jimmy Hoffa. Scorsese's awesome ensemble cast includes Robert De Niro, Anna Paquin, Jesse Plemons, Joe Pesci, Ray Romano, Bobby Cannavale, Harvey Keitel, Jack Huston, Sebastian Maniscalco, Domenick Lombardozzi, Stephen Graham, Tommy McInnis, with Al Pacino as Jimmy Hoffa. Check out the announcement below while we wait for a real trailer soon.
