Well, that "Announcement" left more questions than it answered. Boy, can't wait for the trailer.


I thought maybe they did a remake of the movie "Kill The Irishman" based on the life of Irish mobster Danny Green back in the 70's.

Stephen Graham is in this too, and he's simply one of the best actors alive right now. It's difficult not to get my hopes up for this, even though I know it might be disappointing.

You get the feeling it might be a bit disappointing. Expectation will be so high.

I'm not sure about this at all. The fact that it's being made by Netflix gives it a cheap feeling to me despite it costing 100 million to make or something. This de aging shit they're doing could be a disaster by the way.

I just read the production budget for this movie is 200m dollars. Fucking hell.
Probably why Netflix picked it up instead of one of the bigger studios. That budget is consistent with big superhero films and this film despite how good it may be would struggle to make a good profit.

Looks like big theater chains such as AMC and Cinemark wanted none of The Irishman under Netflix's policy, which is a 30 day gap between theatrical release and online distribution. They are always giving online giants a hard time as they fear income will be low if online / disc / TV distribution is too close to cinema release. Which is bollocks considering today's movies earn 2/3s of their theatrical income in the first two weeks and it's a pity chains demanded 90 days between release and online distribution.

So without a wide cinema release, small independent movie theaters will put it on the big screen November 1 before appearing in my Netflix library on the 27th. Hopefully an art cinema puts it on here in Hungary. You can't stop online companies and subscription services, hell Disney is turning into one, so powers to be in Hollywood should stop delaying the inevitable and pulling the rug under Roma etc. The Irishman belongs to theaters and 30 days is plentiful to earn a buck.

Frank Sheeran lied his ass off in his book from what it seems (like any other criminal). So, historically speaking, it won´t be good, but that´s teh case with all the other mob movies.

Scoserse couldn´t care less though since it is a movie and not a documentary.

I´m just saying, not blaming anyone, a movie is a movie.
