    Last night I was seeing that budget of this movie has gone upto $200 million which now days is budget of a superhero-sci fi movie so I couldnt help myself but think that why it was necessary for Scorsese to use gang of these old actors like De Niro,Pacino,Keitel,Pesci.I mean no disrespect and these guys are acting legends but none of them is at their A game now and also its that de-aging process on which most of money was spent.Why didnt Scorsese go for a younger cast like DiCaprio,Bale,Joaquin,Fassbender.I mean this would have made this movie have actors who have a better bank-ability especially Leo,actors who are at their A game these days,actors who are best of their generation,no need of de-aging and we know that making actors look old is way cheaper than making em look young plus these actors are royalty in acting of present times and this generation.Guys already casted are well past their prime plus Scorsese could have used these actors in a movie where no deaging is required.The Irishman then would have had chance at wide release and studios would have given the movie respect it deserved.I think Scorsese went too emotional with casting of this movie

    It has now ended and final cost is $200million which is shockingly high..

    This is going to end up like the colossal flop Silence, only at least 5 times worse. Bookmark me.

    If this movie flops it proves what a bunch of morons today’s moviegoers are. They rather go and watch a Pikachu movie than a Scorsese gangster movie with the greatest gangster cast ever assembled.

    200million budget is just too much considering the genre and the cast,all them are acting legends but stars of today

      But this movie could be revolutionary with half of the movie being these legends de-aged. 200mil is a small prize to pay.

    But it will taste loss at box office if it goes for wide release

    So how much would it need to break even? $500mil or so? Damn, fingers crossed for this cause Scorsese is my favorite director and next to OUATIH this is my most anticipated movie of 2019. Hopefully it makes bank because that would inspire studios to bankroll more ambitious projects. I guess Scorsese is at that point in his career where he’s only making passion projects like this (been talking about it since 2011 I think) and Silence so for Netflix to fork over so much means they’re extremely confident in the final product to be profitable. Fingers crossed I guess

    Nobody expects this to make money at this point. They’re betting on whether this going to be an awards juggernaut, and that can help it recoup some of its cost.

    That said, I heard showing after showing of this thing was sold out in NYC. Let’s hope it’s a Scorsese masterpiece and maybe it’ll surprise. It’s only showing for a short time in theaters so it’s numbers will appear higher on a per theater basis.

    This will either sweep or be a colossal flop. As long as Marriage Story and Parasite remain contenders with continuing momentum, this has no chance winning any major categories, with the possible exception of screenplay.

    It might do some of you well to remember that sometimes filmmakers do not see profitability as a priority. Popular reactions to some artists has seemed to fool particular audiences into thinking that people, like Scorsese, care about box office more than they do. And of course financial success is on their minds; how could it not be when working within the studio system? But that should not distract you from the fact that someone like Scorsese consciously makes art, not entertainment.

    So the sweep isn’t an option?
