Actor who's playing Livia looks and sounds a little like Edie
The below scene, too, which really stuck in my head. Tom Petty, American Girl, summer of 1977, at the earliest. Carmella was playing 70s rock songs on a boombox in the hospital, presumably from Tony's youth, to hopefully pull him out of the coma after being shot by Uncle June. The memories she describes sound like teenagers horsing around on the Jersey Shore circa 1977. By the way this movie presents a new timeline, they'd be doing this in 1967, the summer of the Newark race riots.
That's Vera Farmiga
Don't worry about the timeline. It's not that important.
If they have to finesse the timeline it's for good reasons.
It's not worth fussing over.
This has to be the most overused joke ever.
I don't disagree. I'm not going to get hung up on it and miss the chance to enjoy Many Saints.
"You hear about the Chinese godfather? He made them an offer they couldn't understand.”
I'm so glad the world of the Sopranos is being revisited. That's a lot of starpower being thrown at the kid, hope he's able to keep up!
no matter what this will be great!
The timeline is important. Chase was meticulous in so many of his artistic choices: accurate portrayals of suburban Jersey, using real places, countless small cultural references in terms of TV shows, music and movies, etc. I could handle a few years off, but a decade? No, that's a major gaffe. Here's hoping it's the only one.
They'll manage it. Assume they know what they're doing.
I think it looks good. I also agree that Vera Fermiga kind of looked/acted like Edie Falco in that clip.
I just realized, Season 1, Episode 7 - Down Neck - has Tony flashing back numerous times to that summer of 1967. Probably worth reviewing in the leadup to this movie.
A few other odd notes. In watching the trailer again, there's a scene with young Tony splayed out on his bedroom floor, headphones on, between speakers, listening to music. You can barely make out one of the album covers in his stack: Humble Pie, Performance Rocking the Fillmore which came out in late 1971. I also noticed his hair would have been very long for a teenage white kid growing up in a working-class neighborhood in Newark circa 1967. So, I'm thinking, this whole movie doesn't take place in 1967, but could be more so flashbacks to that summer interspersed with Tony interacting with his unofficial mentor, Dickie Moltisanti, later in the 70s. Or at least I'm hoping that's the case!
The Many Saints of Newark: Who's Who in the Sopranos Prequel Movie - IGN
The Many Saints of Newark will be released in theaters in the US on October 1 and will be available on HBO Max 31 days from the theatrical release.
I just binge-watched all six seasons.
The bump-cut to black ending disrespects the audience.
Throughout the program Tony Soprano makes numerous references
to growing up and as fspringer points out above there are flashbacks
to his growing up. So there's a lot of different ways to go in a feature
I watched the trailer again. Chase co-authored the screenplay. It’s gonna be good…
Trailer looks good. More action apparently based on this Trailer, than when I watched it 3-4 consecutive episodes in some cases, when a friend originally got ahold of the series(I have since bought the BluRay Box Set). Ray Liotta himself in this movie makes it worth seeing for me. Anyways, my only complaint on the Series was I wanted ‘More Whacking and Less Yacking’(especially from Tony’s annoying Sister).
Title a tad long.
Love the title.
I'm glad they didn't call it The Sopranos or The Sopranos: The Movie.
Calling it The Many Saints of Newark allows for some individuality.
The trailers look promising. The vibes are good.
This will be the first movie I see in a theater in two years.
Seen the trailer, looks promising.
The Sopranos: The beginning
.. would have been better.
As is ... sounds like the new Bruce Springsteen album title.
May be stating the obvious, but it's the transliteration of Christopher's last name, Moltisanti. Obviously, Dickie Moltisanti is the main character and we all remember the many references throughout Sopranos that he was Tony's hero.
That's correct. Moltisanti literally means Many Saints in Italian. And David Chase has said that this is movie is not a Tony Soprano origin story. It's going to focus on Dickie and his untold story.
Regarding the ages of the main mob men characters during the original run of the show -- please let me know if I'm on- or off-target here:
Tony: born 1959? late 30s/early 40s
Christopher: born mid 1960s? early 30s.
Silvio: born mid 1950s? early 40s
Paulie: born mid to late 1940s? mid to late 50s
Big *****: born late 1950s? early 40s
Junior: born early to mid 1930s? late 60s/early 70s
