The first trailer for The Many Saints of Newark, the forthcoming prequel to the Emmy-winning TV series The Sopranos, has finally been published by Warner Bros. Pictures.
The first look at movie footage makes it clear that this film is setting the stage for what we saw in Tony Soprano’s life on HBO, as it includes quotes from the late James Gandolfini’s character, includes its iconic theme song at the end of the trailer, and even includes the subtitle “A Sopranos Story” at the end.
David Chase, the creator of The Sopranos, returned to produce and co-write the film with another former Sopranos writer Lawrence Konner. Filmmaker Alan Taylor, who helmed nine episodes of the series including the penultimate episode before directing movies like Thor: The Dark World and Terminator: Genisys, returns behind the camera as director. “I was interested in Newark and life in Newark at that time,” Chase said in a 2019 interview about the film. “I used to go to down there every Saturday night for dinner with my grandparents. But the thing that interested me most was Tony’s boyhood. I was interested in exploring that.”
