A new trailer for Martin Scorsese's The Irishman was released on Wednesday night on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and we were very excited about learning more details about the plot! The clip shows "Frank 'The Irishman' Sheeran" (Robert De Niro) fighting in Italy during World War II, and being introduced to "Jimmy Hoffa" (Al Pacino) through "Rusell Bufalino" (Joe Pesci.)
Based on the 2004 Charles Brandt's book I Heard You Paint Houses, and written by Steven Zaillian, The Irishman tells the story of "Sheeran's" life; the new trailer hints at his rumored role in President Kennedy's assassination and at his alleged participation in "Hoffa's" disappearance.
