Robert De Niro brought Jimmy Fallon a new trailer for Martin Scorsese’s “The Irishman” on Wednesday, and now we’re bringing it to you.
The upcoming movie, which stars organized crime-movie legends De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, comes out in theaters on Nov. 1 and drops Nov. 27 on Netflix.
“The Irishman” is an epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran (De Niro), a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century.
Spanning decades, the film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa (Pacino), and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.
In the new trailer, Ray Romano’s character Bill Bufalino takes on what appears to be a court case about Sheeran getting let go from a (legitimate) job. That attorney/client privilege facilitates De Niro’s character meeting Pesci’s at what is likely a nice Italian restaurant.
If you’ve seen “Casino” or “Raging Bull” or “Goodfellas,” you probably have an idea what happens next.
A little later in the official trailer, Pacino-as-Hoffa teaches courtroom attendees — including Jesse Plemons — a very important lesson on dealing with a gunman. His advice comes complete with a helpful rhyme to remember.
