It introduces us to Robert De Niro’s Frank Sheeran and Joe Pesci’s Russell Buffalino, as the duo reunite almost thirty years after Scorcese’s gangster opus Goodfellas. There’s also a few glimpses of Al Pacino, who plays a legendary union boss called Jimmy Hoffa. Check it out below.

The clip sees Buffalino put Sheeran in contact with Hoffa, who asks for his help. “Well you know there’s a situation going on now Frank,” Hoffa says, “big business and the government they’re trying to pull us down.”

Seeing as Sheeran is a hitman, we’ll take it that he means there is dirty work that needs doing.

According to a release form Netflix, De Niro’s character is a “hustler who has worked alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th century.” The film will span decades – hence the need for expensive de-aging tech – and chronicle the disappearance of Hoffa.

Alongside these heavyweights, Harvey Keitel, Ray Romano, Bobby Cannavale, Anna Paquin, Stephen Graham and Jesse Plemons will also star.
