The Irishman is obviously trying to be a contender for Awards Season, so it will release in select theaters and on Netflix this fall.

According to Variety, It's the ninth time that De Niro has worked with Scorsese and the first time that Pacino has been directed by the filmmaker.

Despite Steven Spielberg's protestations about the streaming site being included in the Academy Awards, multi-award-winning director Martin Scorsese has made a decision to launch his latest mobster movie, The Irishman, with Netflix.

A current Netflix subscription starts at $13 per month for HD streaming and $16 per month for Ultra HD streaming.

It features Sheeran receiving his first phone call from Hoffa and telling him he "paints houses", a euphemism for killing people, cut with dramatic scenes from the two men's lives. But it seems in the wake of the Cats trailer Scorsese decided it looked good enough to put out into the world. The trailer shows relatively little of this, but the amount of VFX work meant that the movie has involved almost two years of post-production.
