Well, if you're getting pumped for the film then you'll be ecstatic to know Netflix has dropped a new trailer for the film.

Because this story is set over the course of several decades, movie makers were tasked with either finding actors who resembled some of the older cast members or simply use cinema magic to de-age them. They went with the latter.

This trailer gives us the first look at how the used technology to wipe years off De Niro's face and body, showing him in war time and as a much younger portrait of his current facade.

The movie is based on a book called I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt and tells the story of Frank Sheeran (played by Bobby De Niro), an infamous war gangster, hitman and war veteran who got himself mixed up with some of the most notorious folk about during the 20th century.

The plot of the movie will see Sheeran caught up in the murder of a fellow gangster, Pacino's character Jimmy Hoffa.

When the premiere for the film was announced, it was described by the festival as 'funny, troubling, entertaining and, like all great movies, absolutely singular'.

New York Film Festival director Kent Jones added: "It's 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."

Director Scorsese - as any cinema fan knows - has been involved with mobster and mafia films before. You've probably seen a few of them.

However, the iconic filmmaker was keen to let audiences know that this one is different to the rest. He told The Independent: "This is different, I think it is. I admit that there are - you know, Goodfellas and Casino have a certain style that I created for them - it's on the page in the script actually.

"Putting Goodfellas together was almost like an afterthought, at times I was kind of rushing, I felt I'd already done it because I'd played it all out in terms of the camera moves and the editing and that sort of thing.

The movie will have a limited theatrical release on November 1 before being put on Netflix on November 27.
