The Irishman Trailer #2

Robert DeNiro appeared as a guest on The Tonight Show last night, apparently also bringing with him the latest trailer for Martin Scorsese‚Äôs The Irishman. This upcoming Netflix movie is like a dream come true for DeNiro and Scorsese fans, reuniting the duo with Joe Pesci and Al Pacino in the mix as well. But the movie is also under the microscope for its increasing budget and super ambitious de-aging technology, which helps portray DeNiro’s character across multiple decades. The new trailer gives us a few more hints of this but mostly in quick flashes… I’d say at this point the jury is still out. The Irishman hits select theatres on Nov. 1st before arriving on Netflix on Nov. 27th; check out the new trailer below and see what you think.

    Much better trailer.

  • That de-aging looks horrendous.

  • Mrespony

    All the de-aging I’ve seen to date looks unreal, it certainly doesn’t achieve anything like what DeNiro actually looked like when he was younger. However, in the context of this film, where all the actors have altered appearances to give them a closer likeness to their character, it might work. And by work I mean that the viewer won’t constantly examine the quality of the de-aging during those scenes. It doesn’t help that everyone calls out the de-aging leading into a post about the trailer.

    Ya, I was always holding out hope that they would be able to pull it off, but so far it doesn’t look like they have. :(

    What a trainwreck..

  • The shine on their faces is so distracting. Possible that after a while you kind of start noticing (i.e. ignoring) it. But I would’ve preferred to just cast younger actors Once Upon a Time in America style.

  • Beat_C

    this looks tragic, like watching an old band strutting their stuff on stage, pretending to be 20 again.

    This is at 100% on our beloved RT after 33 reviews.

    You dumb Scorsese doubters.

    I will say, if you watch the trailer on Netflix itself, which has a higher res version, the CG looks way better, almost unnoticeable. The youtube compression really kills all the fine detail that would help sell the effect.
