Latest trailer shows the rise and bloody road of greatest crime family

The revival of the “The Sopranos”, the hit HBO series, that most recently seen on our screens 14 years ago, in 2014, is about the reemerge.  The prequel “ The Many Saints of Newark” is scheduled for dual release in theaters and simultaneously streaming on HBO Max (for 31 days) starting on October 1st. 

The movie will focus on young Anthony (Tony) Soprano coming to age in Newark during a tumultuous era in history, as rival gangsters begin to rise up and challenge the notorious and all powerful DiMeo crime family. 

Fans will see how Tony’s relationship with his uncle Dicki Moltisanti, and his influence, ultimately helps to create the bad-ass mob boss he will later become. 

In the new new trailer, fans get to see young Soprano played by James Gandolfini’s real-life (!) son Michael who will step into the shoes of his father’s very iconic role.

It is unclear is this will hit big with Soprano’s lovers, of which there are still many, and become a satisfying extension of the series. The origins of such an iconic and fleshed out character is a challenge, yet the amazing possibility to cast the (deceased) Gandolfini’s son lends an air of authentic to the production that could hardly be accomplished in any other way.

Imagine, one day a weeks long binge of the entire prequel, followed by the full six seasons of the original series. Can’t wait…

Other cast include: Leslie Odom Jr., Jon Bernthal, Corey Stoll, Billy Magnussen, Michela De Rossi, Vera Farmiga, Ray Liotta and John Magaro.
