The much-anticipated trailer of Martin Scorsese’s gangster film The Irishman has been released.

The Netflix movie stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci and is described as an epic saga of organized crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran – a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century.

Spanning decades, the Irishman chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organised crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.
