For a generation of young and adult alike who have grown up adoring the movies of Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, and director Martin Scorsese, here comes The Irishman turning their wildest imagination into a reality. It is a dream come true moment for all movie buffs.
Ever since the project was announced, there has been a massive buzz around it among the movie lovers and fans of the legendary actors. The teaser serves them full meals, and yet it leaves them asking for more. The whole setting screams classic Scorsese with all the punches and energy of the veteran filmmaker and the actors intact.
Netflix backs The Irishman. It is one of their costliest projects. A lot of that was due to the de-ageing technology that has been employed to show key actors 30 years younger than what they are, currently. More than the cost, the lack of significant success in the gangster genre had made all the top studios shy away from taking the project. Netflix had then come to the rescue.
The reactions to the teaser trailer are incredibly positive. Netflix would be hoping that it turns into substantial numbers for them when it hits the screens as well as streaming platform later in the year. But, before that happens, The Irishman will have its grand worldwide premiere (as the opening picture) at the New York Film Festival. Take a look at the teaser below.
