Netflix has released the first images from Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman, which will open the New York Film Festival in September. The film is drumming up a huge amount of excitement, not least because it's the first time Al Pacino and Scorsese have worked together and it marks longtime Scorsese collaborator Joe Pesci's return to acting.

The crime drama brings Charles Brandt's novel I Heard You Paint Houses to life. The story follows “The Irishman,” Frank Sheeran (Robert De Niro), a mob hitman who was allegedly involved in the death of the Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa, played by Pacino.

Filmmaker Kent Jones describes The Irishman as “the work of masters, made with a command of the art of cinema that I’ve seen very rarely in my lifetime, and it plays out at a level of subtlety and human intimacy that truly stunned me.”

As well as Pacino, De Niro, and Pesci, the film stars Anna Paquin, Harvey Keitel, and Stephen Graham, among others. The Irishman will stream on Netflix later this year.
