The irishman Release Date

Just last week, we heard Netflix and a couple major movie theater chains were struggling to work out a deal for the theatrical release Martin Scorsese‘s upcoming mob drama The Irishman. Movie theaters wanted a more traditional three month window in which the movie could play in theaters before it was added to Netflix’s library, but the streaming service didn’t want it to be in theaters for more than a few weeks. We’re not sure how those negotiations turned out, but The Irishman release date, both in theaters and on Netflix, has officially been announced. Read More »

after exile

Robert De Niro and Shia LaBeouf are joining forces for After Exile, a crime drama based on true events. Oddly enough, this movie isn’t a sequel, nor is it an adaptation of a comic book or a TV show. Weird, right? Do they even make movies like that anymore? Joshua Michael Stern, director of the other Steve Jobs biopic Jobs, is set to helm this story of an ex-con and his ex-criminal father.

the irishman trailer

Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, and Joe Pesci are together again in the first trailer for The Irishman. This highly-anticipated crime epic finds Scorsese returning to the gangster lifestyle for the first time in years and bringing two of his most famous collaborators with him. And as if that weren’t enough, Al Pacino is involved as well, marking the first time the actor has worked with Scorsese. Based on the (allegedly) true story of mob hitman Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, the story spans decades and includes a glimpse into the underbelly of history. Watch The Irishman trailer below.

killers of the flower moon cast

Martin Scorsese is getting the band back together for Killers of the Flower Moon. The filmmaker is currently scouting locations for his true crime saga, and while it was previously reported that he would reunite with Leonardo DiCaprio for the flick, it’s now been revealed that Robert De Niro might be a part of the cast as well. This would mark the first time Scorsese worked with both DiCaprio and De Niro in the same feature film.

robert de niro bagel commercial

Robert De Niro was once hailed as the greatest actor of his generation. Now, he’s selling bagels in the UK. The acclaimed actor pokes fun at some of his famous wiseguy roles in a truly strange new commercial for British baking company Warburtons. The gist of the commercial is that New York tough guys are particularly outraged that folks across the pond would try to muscle in on America’s bagel action.

At least, I think that’s what’s happening here. What makes this extra weird is the fact that De Niro is apparently playing himself, not a character. Which means this commercial is implying Robert De Niro is a real mobster, not just an actor who sometimes plays one. See for yourself and watch the Robert De Niro bagel commercial below.

the irishman vfx

We still haven’t seen any footage of Martin Scorsese‘s The Irishman, and there’s a good reason for that. Scorsese and company are working hard to make the film’s special effects perfect. The movie spans several decades, and rather than cast different actors to play the cast of characters throughout time, Scorsese instead employed the type of de-aging tech Marvel uses. Robert De Niro, who reunites with Scorsese to star in the film, offered some insight into the process.

joker poster

Our first full look at the Joaquin Phoenix Joker movie is here. What do you think? Will this seemingly crazy idea pay off and result in a great movie, or was this a huge mistake? No matter how Joker turns out, we can say with some certainty that it’s definitely not going to be your standard DC comic book movie. Completely separate from every other DC film so far, Joker is a character study about a mentally ill individual who eventually transforms into the Joker. Watch the Joker trailer below.

the irishman teaser

The first teaser for Martin Scorsese‘s The Irishman is here! And…there’s no footage. But hey, we’ll take what we can get. In the Netflix film, Scorsese reunites with his original leading man, Robert De Niro. He also reunites with Harvey Keitel and Joe Pesci, the latter having come out of retirement to work with the director again. And if all that wasn’t enough, Scorsese is also working with Al Pacino for the very first time. Watch (or I guess I should say listen to) The Irishman teaser below.

The Irishman release date

It seems like every few months we learn a little more about Martin Scorsese‘s ambitious inter-generational gangster movie, The Irishman, and a little less about when this film will finally come out. Since rumblings about the film first started happening in 2010, Scorsese fans have waited with bated breath for The Irishman release date to be announced.

When Netflix picked up the drama, the end appeared to be in sight. Then 2017 passed us by. Then 2018. And not a word about this film has been spoken since the new year started — but now actors and crew have started to drum up anticipation for the Robert De Niro, Al Pacino gangster movie with new details about the film’s de-aging technology and (finally) a possible release date.
