‘Sopranos’ Prequel Movie ‘The Many Saints Of Newark’ Heads To The Fall

Warner Bros is moving from March 12th to September 24th. The Sopranos prequel pic The many saints of Newark. New Line is released.
Keep in mind, WarnerMedia has announced that its entire programming for 2021 is slated for both theaters and HBO Max at the same time. However, large chains like AMC negotiate conditions film by film. So that means that not everything Warners publishes plays the theaters that are open coast to coast. It's conceivable that Saints is totally ripe for HBO Max, as it's a forerunner to the Emmy-award-winning HBO mob series. However, Saints was lit green as a theatrical release two years ago before the streaming service even existed. Moving into September transports the Saints to a time of the year when more theaters may be open, not to mention the film is also being considered for the 2021-22 awards season. Most distributors for the first quarter are delaying theatrical releases or bringing them straight to your home.
