In this week new movie on VOD, Tony Soprano is still alive and well in David Chase’s prequel Sopranos, Many Saints of Newark. In the new film, Michael Gandolfini plays Tony, a role originally played by his father, James.
The latest film from writer-director Abel Ferrara, Zeros and Ones, starring Ethan Hawke this week. Much of the film’s content, which is about a soldier named JJ, who is called to action when Rome is threatened by a mysterious terrorist bombing, was filmed in Italy during his time in captivity. Scary, desolate becomes much more unsettling.
Cryptozoo, an animated feature film by filmmaker Dash Shaw, is a film about a woman (voiced by Lake Bell) who saves mythical cryptids, creatures such as baku and krakens and every other species you’ve heard of in the fairy tales, and take them to a cryptozoo, a safe haven where they can get through the day. Thing is, crypto allows visitors to stare at the animals, so it’s not entirely ideal. The animation style is quite outstanding and the story is unlike any you’ve ever seen, making this movie truly an original.
These are just a few of the titles available to watch on Amazon Prime Video, iTunes, YouTube, and through your cable service this week. Check out which movies are available to buy or rent on demand right now!
The year is 1967 and Tony Soprano (Michael Gandolfini) is just a kid influenced by his uncle, Dickie Moltisanti (Alessandro Nivola). (Dickie would eventually continue with father Christophah, played by Michael Imperioli in the TV series, who only appeared in this series as a voiceover.) Dickie is a member of the DiMeo crime family, and this is the story of his own troubled past and origins, which serves to provide a richer backstory of the characters in it. Sopranos and how they got there, but it’s also an angry guy’s story. It may not fill Sopranos– big hole in your heart, but it’s a nice distraction.
Filmed in Italy during the pandemic, Abel Ferrara’s Zeros and Ones took advantage of the quiet isolation brought by the lockdown to this political action drama. Rome, facing an impending terrorist threat, is essentially under siege and a soldier named JJ (Ethan Hawke) arrives in the city to help stop the attack. Hawke also plays Justin, JJ’s brother, a man who may be delusional, but he may also have some important information that could help JJ.
