We all miss James Gandolfini but have no fear, if you didn't get a chance to see last year's fantastic "Enough Said," the late star still has a final appearance in the crime thriller "The Drop" from director Michaël R. Roskam and written by Dennis Lehane ("Shutter Island," "Gone Baby Gone," "Mystic River"). The main star of the film is Tom Hardy as Gandolfini's onscreen nephew. Fox Searchlight will release the movie on September 19. And it looks intriguing!
Another late star we missed is Brittany Murphy but finally, her last film is being released after hiding on the shelf for a while. "Something Wicked" will open in Eugene, Ore. Why Eugene? Because that's where the movie was shot. If you're in Eugene and want to see Murphy's "Something Wicked," the release date is April 4th and it will expand to 19 other locations. It's a psychological thriller about a couple falling apart. »
The new film, from Michael R. Roskam, carries the weight of being James Gandolfini's final film, and it looks scintillating. Co-starring fellow heavyweights such as the always impressive Tom Hardy, and Noomi Rapace, the crime-drama, based on a book by Dennis Lehane (of "Mystic River" and "Gone Baby Gone" fame) tells the story of a bar where dirty money is flushed under the watchful eye of a bartender who may know more than he lets on when they bar is robbed. Here's the official synopsis: "The Drop" follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters - "money drops" - in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv (James Gandolfini), Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood's past where friends, »

Adapted from his own short story, novelist James Lehane (Gone Baby Gone, Shutter Gone) makes his debut as feature screen writer with The Drop, directed by Belgian director Michaël R. Roskam. It's fitting that Lehane's first big screen work coincides with James Gandolfini's last, the movie filmed before his death last year. A hard boiled crime drama, The Drop see's Tom Hardy as Bob, and ex-con and owner of bar in Brooklyn that serves as a money 'drop' for local gangsters. When the bar is robbed, Bob and his cousin, also the bars owner, Marv (Galdofini) find themselves under threat from the criminal underworld. Everybody seems on top form here, and this seems like the perfect high note for James Galdofini to go out on. Released: 19th September (U.S.)/ 14th November (Irl/U.K.) »

Many moviegoers presumed that James Gandolfini’s sweet natured role in Enough Said, which was released last September and earned him a Screen Actors Guild nomination, was his last film. However, Gandolfini’s final big screen appearance is actually in The Drop, a new thriller from Bullhead director Michaël R. Roskam with a screenplay from crime author Dennis Lehane (novelist of Gone Baby Gone and Shutter Island), based on his short story.
Although Enough Said was a lighthearted venture for the actor best known for playing Tony Soprano on HBO, The Drop feels like a more appropriate legacy for him, given his omnipresence in crime dramas over the years in both film and television.
In The Drop, Gandolfini plays Marv, the cousin of a New York bartender Bob Saginowski (played by Tom Hardy). The film’s title comes from how the “drop bar” Saginowski manages is a place where criminals drop their dirty money. »

Fox Searchlight Pictures has released the trailer for the upcoming crime drama “The Drop” starring Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini, Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts, John Ortiz, Ann Dowd, and James Frecheville. The film will primarily be known for one thing…James Gandolfini’s final film.
The film follows a lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters — “money drops” — in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv (James Gandolfini), Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood’s past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living – no matter the cost. »

Of course, I use the names Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace in the headline because it's more eye-grabbing for more people. I could have also used James Gandolfini (in his final film) or Matthias Schoenaerts if I had more space, but the big draw for me with this first trailer for The Drop (previously titled Animal Kingdom) is that it comes from Bullhead director Michael R. Roskam and was written by "Shutter Island" and "Gone Baby Gone" author, Dennis Lehane (based upon his short story "Animal Rescue"). The film takes an inside look at Organized crime's use of local New York City bars as money-laundering 'drops'. When lonely Brooklyn bartender Bob Saginowski (Hardy) uncovers a drop of a different sort in the form of a battered pit bull puppy that he rescues from certain death, he comes into contact with Nadia (Rapace), a mysterious woman hiding a dark past.

Bullhead director Michaël R. Roskam got to call the shots on The Drop, which scripted by Dennis Lehane (Gone Baby Gone). You probably wouldn’t even need to have that spelled out for you, because this first The Drop trailer very much conveys the feel of films like Mystic River and Gone Baby Gone, perhaps with a bit of Killing Them […]

After stills released a few days ago we now have the first trailer for The Drop starring Tom Hardy & James Gandolfini available for your viewing pleasure. The crime drama is based on Hardy’s character who runs a bar where the local criminals hide their money. The bar is robbed and Hardy, along with his Uncle played by Gandolfini, are caught up in an investigation and possible revenge from the criminals whose money has been taken.
From the looks of the trailer we can expect a dark, gritty and intense drama with some powerful performances; we dread to think what cruel fate awaits Hardy’s pet dog and the fact the movie was originally called Animal Rescue doesn’t install much hope into proceedings.

Fox Searchlight has released the trailer for the crime drama The Drop. Tom Hardy plays Bob, a former criminal and current bartender working at a bar that serves as a money “drop” for local gangsters. When the bar gets robbed, Bob and his cousin/employer Marv (James Gandolfini) find themselves in the crosshairs of an investigation and the criminal underworld. Directed by Michaël R. Roskam (Bullhead) working from a script by Dennis Lehane (Gone Baby Gone), who adapted his own short story, I have high hopes for this one, not only because of the talent on board, but because it's Gandolfini's final film, and I want his filmography to go out on a high note. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts, John Ortiz, Ann Dowd, and James Frecheville. The Drop opens September 19th. Here's the official synopsis for The Drop »

Remember those photos from last year of Tom Hardy snuggling an adorable pit bull puppy on the set of an upcoming movie? Now you can check out the fruits of his fuzzy labor in this trailer for "The Drop," which was previously known as "Animal Rescue."
Hardy co-stars with the late James Gandolfini as Bob and Marv, two Brooklyn guys on the periphery of the underworld. Bob's trying to keep his nose clean, what with the aforementioned puppy and a girlfriend (Noomi Rapace) and a regular gig as a bartender, but he happens to be working at a bar that's used as a money drop for local criminals. He and his cousin Marv get in the middle of a big old mess when their bar is held up and some local guys (led by Matthias Schoenaerts) make off with all the cash.
It won't be easy to watch Gandolfini in »

Tom Hardy and his beard have been getting quite the workout this year. Between Locke and Mad Max: Fury Road, Hardy's facial hair has almost become a character all it's own. Now, the scruff returns with a New York accent alongside Noomi Rapace and the late James Gandolfini in the trailer for The Drop. Coming from Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone), The Drop (previously titled Animal Rescue) follows the gritty crime formula of Lehane's other works in a smaller scale, more indie »

2013 was a pretty awful year for Hollywood in terms of the actors we lost, and perhaps no death was as shocking and unexpected as that of The Sopranos star James Gandolfini, who passed away from a heart attack at age 51 last June. However, filmgoers have still not seen the last of the prolific actor, who posthumously touched our hearts with the bittersweet romantic comedy Enough Said and is also set to star in an upcoming drama titled The Drop.
Today, the first images from The Drop, which also stars Tom Hardy as a bartender whose life takes an unusual turn after he rescues a wounded dog, have surfaced online, and you can check them out below. Of course, while seeing images of Gandolfini is a melancholy experience, I’m also looking forward to seeing his final performance. The actor was such an indomitable presence on screen, as any watchers of The Sopranos surely know, »

Sadly the world lost James Gandolfini last June, leaving us just a couple of final opportunities to see him at work. There was Enough Said, the comedy drama with Julia Louis-Dreyfus, which he shot in the autumn of 2012 and was released last October. His last role was in The Drop, completed just a couple of months before he died. Based on Dennis Lehane’s short story Animal Rescue (and originally titled that), the film co-stars Tom Hardy and is directed by Michael R. Roskam (Bullhead). It’s out in the UK at the end of this year, and the first stills have just surfaced at USA Today.Head to USA Today for more stillsLehane (original author of Gone Baby Gone, Mystic River and Shutter Island) served as his own adaptor for The Drop, which marks his first screenwriting credit. The story involves Bob, a lonely Boston barman (Hardy) and ex-criminal trying to go straight, »
It was only last summer that we heard the very sad news of James Gandolfini’s passing but we’re all very interested to see him back on the big screen for the final time, alongside Tom Hardy in The Drop, formerly titled Animal Rescue.
Based on the short story by Dennis Lehane, you’ll know Gone Baby Gone and Mystic River as some of his other work, it’s directed by Michaël R. Roskam who’s only previous feature was the compelling Bullhead. At a very basic level, we know the film is most definitely an underground crime-drama that’s centered around a lost pit bull that Tom Hardy’s character Bob Saginowski rescues, a wannabe scam artist, and a killing.
