Soprano“The fans have waited a long time to see Michel Gandolfini in action as Tony Soprano in “The Many Saints of Newark. “

The previous film, which was originally scheduled to hit theaters in September 2020, has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, sending the cast back to New Jersey for more filming after they envelope in the summer of 2019.

Then the new release date – March 12, 2021, in theaters and on HBO Max – did not materialize and the film was pushed back again a full year for September 2021.

Now Warner Bros. and HBO Max pull the curtain back just a little by offering a snippet of a preview in a great trailer for their 2021 list of “same day premieres”, meaning films that will debut simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max.

Gandolfini, 21, is the son of James Gandolfini, the famous actor who grew up in Park Ridge and won three Emmy Awards for playing Tony Soprano before his death in 2013. Michael plays a young Tony in the ’70s.

Young Gandolfini, sporting long hair suitable for the decade, can be seen fighting another actor for a brief moment in the trailer, staring at him and pushing him down the street.

“Antonio Soprano,” someone says in a voiceover.

The film title is displayed using a font reminiscent of the HBO show, with a gun replacing the “R” in Newark.

“The Many Saints of Newark”, which was shot in New Jersey Locations including Newark, Bloomfield and Paterson, must go out September 24, 2021 in theaters and on HBO Max.

“Rival gangsters, the Newark riots, and a ton of gabagool will be delivered directly to cinemas and @hbomax ”, Michael Gandolfini mentionned of the film in an Instagram post on January 13. “The wait will be worth it. I love you all.”

The film portrays Tony’s upbringing and the 1967 Newark Riots. Actors playing the residents of Newark, police and national guards filled the streets of the city in 2019 for the filming of the prequel of “The Sopranos”.

Alexander Nivola stars alongside Gandolfini as his mentor, Dickie Moltisanti. Moltisanti becomes the father of Christopher Moltisanti, Tony’s mentee in the HBO series, which premiered in 1999 and ended in 2007 with a famous black cut. Moltisanti means “many saints”, hence the title of the film.

Michael Gandolfini, Nivola and other actors recently shared an image of Christopher’s gravestone with the new date for the film. In “The Sopranos”, Tony Soprano suffocates Christopher when they have a car accident after Christopher drives while on drugs.
