the irishman runtime

Last night, the New York Film Festival website let slip that Martin Scorsese‘s crime epic The Irishman might be very epic indeed. According to the site, Scorsese’s new film clocks in at 210 minutes, making it over 3 hours long. This news was met with a mixture of glee and derision. But why? When it comes to movies, how long is too long? If audiences can sit through nearly 3 hours of Avengers: Endgame, surely they can stay a little longer for the latest movie from Martin Scorsese. Right…?

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 »

The Irishman Theatrical Release

Another year, another battle between Netflix and movie theater chains over a possible awards contender getting a wide theatrical release. Last year, it was Roma that didn’t play in any major theater chains due to Netflix’s desire to get the film on streaming as soon as possible but still meet the desires of director Alfonso Cuarón, who wanted his movie to play on the big screen. This year, it’s Martin Scorsese and his return to mob drama with The Irishman that’s creating a stir between Netflix and movie theater chains. Read More »

The Irishman first look

the irishman cgi

The Irishman is Martin Scorsese‘s reunion with Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel. It’s also his return to the crime movie genre. But despite all these familiar elements, the upcoming Netflix film is going to be unlike anything Scorsese has ever made before. Because unlike the filmmaker’s previous films, The Irishman is employing extensive CGI in order to de-age the cast. The story spans decades, and rather than cast younger actors for earlier scenes, Scorsese is using special effects to give De Niro and company a youthful appearance. We’ve yet to see any footage of The Irishman, and it sounds like there’s a good reason for that: Scorsese is obsessing over getting it right.

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.
