Amazon Prime Video has released the official Hunters trailer for executive producer Jordan Peele’s upcoming Nazi-hunting action-thriller starring Al Pacino and Logan Lerman. 

Hunters’ A-list cast includes Logan Lerman as Jonah Heidelbaum and Al Pacino, making it his first-ever television role. Emmy Award-nominated actor Dylan Baker (The Good Wife), Jerrika Hinton (Grey’s Anatomy), Greg Austin (Class), Catherine Tate (The Office), Josh Radnor (Rise), Tiffany Boone (Beautiful Creatures), and Saul Rubinek (Warehouse 13) will also star along with Academy Award nominees Lena Olin (Enemies) and Carol Kane (Hester Street).

The series has been given a direct-to-series order and will have 10 hour-long episodes. Hunters will tell the story of a group known as the Hunters living in New York City in 1977.

The story is inspired by real-life events.

Hunters will debut on February 21 on Amazon Prime.

Watch The Irishman Teaser

The first teaser for Martin Scorsese’s return to the world of organized crime, The Irishman, is here, and it shows how one notorious hitman was able to change the course of history. 

Robert De Niro headlines The Irishman as mob hitman Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, reputed to have carried out more than 25 murders. Al Pacino will portray infamously slain labor leader Jimmy Hoffa in what will mark the Academy Award winner’s first time working with Scorsese. Joe Pesci will portray Pennsylvania Mafia boss Russell Bufalino, who may have had a hand in the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa. Ray Romano will play another member of the same crime family, Bill Bufalino. Bill Bufalino works as a Teamster lawyer.

Steve Zaillian (Schindler’s List, American Gangster) penned the script based on the novel I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt.

The Irishman will arrive in theaters and on Netflix this fall.
