Sadly, there’s no footage from the movie in the trailer below. but you do get to hear the voices of some of the actors and a bullet shell casing flying through the air.
The Irishman is based on Charles Brandt’s book, I Heard You Paint Houses: Frank ‘The Irishman’ Sheeran & Closing the Case on Jimmy Hoffa, and there’s a lot of controversy surrounding the story as it’s based on the deathbed confession of Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran.
“The hit man claimed to tell the real story of the disappearance of former Teamsters boss Hoffa. However, the account Sheeran told to Brandt has been disputed. Still, the FBI actually thought enough of Sheeran’s confession to pull up several floor boards from a house where he said he shot and killed Hoffa to look for DNA evidence. Latter the bureau said that the samples found weren’t from Hoffa.”
The Irishman will hit theaters and air on Netflix this fall.
