The Irishman first official trailer is here
The Irishman is one of Martin Scorsese’s most ambitious movies of his illustrious career.
Not only is it the director’s first collaboration with Al Pacino, but it’s the first to use technology to de-age its main actors. The cost of the production? A cool US$125-million.
The film reportedly spans a massive timeline, with flashbacks going back as far as the 1950s. One reason the film took so long to make was its complex de-aging technology, to ensure each character looked and sounded younger.
No one expected a big cinema director like Scorsese to embrace a streaming service like Netflix instead of a traditional studio; the director has been a huge backer of traditional cinema for decades now. However, that does mean that all Netflix subscribers will get to watch the film on November 27.
