The Many Saints of Newark
Writer/producer David Chase returns to the world of wise guys in this to his iconic series, The Sopranos, which follows a teenaged Tony Soprano and the mobster Dickie Moltisanti who loomed largely over the show. The late James Gandolfini’s son, Michael, takes over the part of Tony.

No Time to Die
Originally slated for release in April 2020, this is the highly anticipated final outing for Daniel Craig as James Bond. Featuring recent Oscar winner Rami Malek as the villain and acclaimed filmmaker Cary Fukunaga, the film should prove to be a truly epic send off for Craig.
