Open Post: Hosted By The Trailer For “The Sopranos” Prequel
The Sopranos prequel film, The Many Saints of Newark, has dropped its official trailer. Finally! A piece of pop culture I actually care about! The new movie, which will be released in theatres and HBO Max on October 1, was directed by Alan Taylor and written by Sopranos creator David Chase and Lawrence Konner. It’s set in 1967 during the Newark race riots and stars the late, great James Gandolfini’s son, Michael Gandolfini, as a teenage Tony Soprano, who shows a lotta potential (although he never had the makings of a varsity athlete), but gets led down the wrong path by his uncle Dickie Moltisanti (Christopha’s daddy), played by Alessandro Nivola. The trailer features a lot of beatdowns, guns, explosions, vintage cars, bellbottoms, go-go boots, menacing low-angle shots, and the return of Satriale’s. I’m in!
