The Irishman is The Avengers of mob movies; after all Martin Scorsese is behind the camera and Robert De Niro in the spotlight.

The movie’s trailer, that was dropped in July shows us Sheeran, played by De Niro, getting a call from Jimmy Hoffa played by Al Pacino seeking his employment. The trailer also shows us Sheeran at work carrying out hit with Russell Bufalino, portrayed by Joe Pesci. Spanning across decades, The Irishman chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history- the disappearance of legendary Union Boss Jimmy Hoffa.
