We have great news if you’re looking to watch The Many Saints of Newark online as the movie has just landed on HBO Max (opens in new tab). Subscribers will be able to stream the Sopranos prequel online, and your only other alternative is heading down to your local movie theater.
Make note though if you haven’t signed up to HBO Max yet, you’ll need to sign-up to the Ad-Free tier at $14.99 a month (opens in new tab) instead of the cheaper $9.99. The latter tier has ads, is only HD (no 4K), doesn’t allow downloads, and more importantly, also doesn’t include access to the Warner Bros movie premiers on the same day they hit theatres.
Signups are paid monthly on a rolling contract that you can cancel at any time. You’re also free to knock your membership down to the cheaper tier after you’ve watched the movie if you like.
The movie itself stars Michael Gandolfini, the real-life son of the dearly-departed star of The Sopranos, James Gandolfini. And there’s a striking resemblance, mesmerizingly reminiscent of the malevolence always lurking under the surface in his father’s performance. Other stars that will play arguably more prominent roles in the film include Alessandro Nivola, Jon Bernthal, Vera Farmiga, and a certain legend in Ray Liotta – sadly not reprising his Goodfella’s Henry Hill role again in what would have been very meta if ultimately implausible.
Watch The Many Saints of Newark with HBO Max
HBO Max – $14.99 a month
(opens in new tab)The Many Saints of Newark was released on HBO Max on October 1 and will be available for 31 days before being removed. Expect it to return a few months later once its theatrical run is over. Once it returns, you’ll be able to watch it on the cheaper ad-supported HBO Max tier. You’ll also be able to watch every season of The Sopranos on HBO Max if you want to roll straight into that from the prequel movie too. What. A. Weekend.
HBO Max has been a big hit this year thanks to its strong run of day-and-date cinema releases. Subscribers have saved themselves a small fortune in cinema tickets by being able to watch the likes of Wonder Woman 1984, Suicide Squad, Malignant, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, Space Jam: A New Legacy, Mortal Kombat, and more.
In addition to being able to watch The Many Saints of Newark online instead of at the cinema, you’ll also be able to watch Dune (October 22) and The Matrix 4 (December 22).
There are of course loads of other movies to enjoy, but it’s the incredibly strong selection of box sets that really makes HBO Max one of the best streaming services in the US right now. Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, The Wire, Girls, and more are past classics well supported by newer essential hits like The Flight Attendant, Lovecraft Country, Rick & Morty, Raised by Wolves, Made for Love, and more. And don’t forget, you can cancel at any time.
Where to watch The Many Saints of Newark outside of the USA
Put simply, it’s the cinema or nothing at the moment if you’re outside of the US. Other streaming services like Netflix, Binge, Crave, Now TV, and Amazon Video aren’t getting the movie anytime soon.
If any of those services have picked up HBO content before, they’re a solid shout for eventually getting the movie, but Warner Bros will be keen to see if it can rake in some cash via the reopening of cinemas around the world first.
