The Many Saints of Newark, the prequel film to The Sopranos, will soon be available to stream in the US.
The film was released in UK cinemas on 22 September.
In the US, it will be released on Friday (1 October) both in cinemas and online.
The Many Saints of Newark falls under a deal between Warner Bros and HBO Max, under which all of Warner Bros’ films released in 2021 also air on the same day on HBO Max.
This means that HBO Max subscribers can stream these films – including the Sopranos prequel – at no extra cost on the day they come out.
Each film remains available on the streaming platform for 31 days.
Also included in the deal are the forthcoming Dune, The Matrix Resurrections, and Malignant.
The Many Saints of Newark stars Michael Gandolfini (the son of the late Sopranos star James Gandolfini) as a young Anthony Soprano as he grows 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,” reads Warner Bros’ synopsis, “and whose influence over his impressionable nephew will help make the teenager into the all-powerful mob boss we’ll later come to know: Tony Soprano.”
