You'll get to see Scorsese's crime epic on the big screen.

One of the most-talked about movies of 2019, and not just because it is both a Goodfellas reunion (De Niro and Pesci) and a Heat reunion (De Niro and Pacino), but also the first time that the legendary Martin Scorsese has worked with all three on the same project.

The Irishman, with a budget reportedly of over $200 million, tells the decades-long tale of organised crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran (De Niro), a hustler and hitman who worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century.

The film chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history - the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa (Pacino) - and offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organised crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.

Also starring Harvey Keitel, Jesse Plemons, Anna Paquin, Stephen Graham, Ray Romano, and Bobby Cannavale, and written by Oscar-winner Steven Zaillian (Schindler's List, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, American Gangster), the movie is obviously lining itself up as a major awards contender.

But on top of that, it makes a certain kind of sense to show something called The Irishman in Irish cinemas!

The movie will begin streaming on Netflix from Wednesday 27 November, but will be available to see on the big screen across Ireland from Friday 8 November.
