Sopranos Prequel Many Saints Of Newark Drops New Trailer

The Sopranos movie will finally be in theaters and HBO Max on October 1.


Warner Bros. has released the second trailer for The Many Saints of Newark, the upcoming prequel to HBO's acclaimed drama series The Sopranos. The highly-anticipated follow-up to the popular series will hit theaters and HBO Max on October 1.

The movie focuses on a young Anthony Soprano, who is played by Michael Gandolfini, the son of Tony Soprano actor James Gandolfini from the HBO series. The show takes place in Newark, New Jersey. Young Tony idolizes his uncle, Dickie Moltisanti (Alessandro Nivola), and this relationship sends them both to some violent places. Check out this new clip below, which gets into some different territory than the trailer released back in June.

Here's the full description for The Many Saints of Newark: "Young Anthony Soprano is growing up in one of the most tumultuous eras in Newark's history, becoming a man just as rival gangsters begin to rise up and challenge the all-powerful DiMeo crime family's hold over the increasingly race-torn city. Caught up in the changing times is the uncle he idolizes, Dickie Moltisanti, who struggles to manage both his professional and personal responsibilities--and whose influence over his nephew will help make the impressionable teenager into the all-powerful mob boss we'll later come to know: Tony Soprano."

In addition to Gandolfini and Nivola, the movie stars Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton), Jon Bernthal (The Wolf of Wall Street), Corey Stoll (First Man), Billy Magnussen (The Big Short), Vera Farmiga (The Departed), and Ray Liotta (Goodfellas). The Many Saints of Newark is directed by Alan Taylor, who previously made Thor: The Dark World and directed several Sopranos episodes. The screenplay was written by The Sopranos creator David Chase and Lawrence Konner. It was filmed on location in New York and New Jersey.

Note that while The Many Saints of Newark comes to theaters and HBO Max on October 1, it's only available on the streaming service for 31 days for users with ad-free plans.
