Apparently, according to one of the producers of the film, The Irishman is a slower paced Scorsese film and it focuses on toxic masculinity.

Rosenthal has already caused a few idiots to lose their minds over those damaging :D two words "toxic masculinity". I think I see what she means.

About the slower pace, many folks, who are obviously not familiar with the book, have superficially labeled the film as a Goodfellas, Casino like film. Schoonmaker and other people involved in the film have said before it's a very different animal, more meditative.

Pretty sure those are stills direct from the film. Like I said on Twitter, the first one looks a bit CGey in still form. Wouldn't be surprised if it's perfectly fine in motion. I guess that part during the war will be relatively brief.

The first one looks like it's straight out of Call of Duty. Yikes. Thankfully the scenes from his army days will be very short. De Niro is supposed to be 24 in that scene, the youngest he’ll play. Pacino at his youngest will be 44 and Pesci 55.

The rest will probably look fine since they'll be middle aged guys. But yeah, the first one is very bad.

I didn't like that trailer at all. Plus, it was a huge risk making this movie and by the looks of it, the de-aging will be jarring.
