Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman has been in the works for some time now and it is almost here, and by all reports, we have something special awaiting us. The $180 Million Netflix film premiered at the New York Film Festival to a standing ovation. Critics praised the performance by De Niro, along with co-stars Joe Pesci and Al Pacino.

Some Twitter users took to twitter to spread their love of the film.

The film follows the story of Frank Sheeran, a WW2 war vet and mob man played by De Niro. Sheeran reflects on the life he lived and the role he played in the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa, along with his involvement with the Bufalino Crime Family.

The film will not only feature Robert De Niro, but also a young Robert De Niro, with expensive de-aging technology used on the film. This has led to the film having a hefty production cost of over $180 Million. This expensive technology has been used before in many blockbusters recently. It looks like they might have perfected it.

With award season around the corner, critics are suggesting that De Niro would be a prime candidate for the top award. This would pin him against his Joker co-star, Joaquin Pheonix, who is also seen as a front runner for the award.

The Irishman will be released on Netflix globally on November 27, but will also have a limited theatrical release on November 1.
