Lucky for us dudes, there are plenty of big blockbuster movies to look forward to this year – whether you are headed to the theaters or would rather watch from the comfort of your own man cave.

Fans of the iconic HBO television series The Sopranos have been waiting with bated breath for the release of the show’s much anticipated prequel film The Many Saints of Newark. Taking place in1960s New Jersey, the film will follow the origin story of the fictional Soprano family crime syndicate. No matter how fans might feel about the show’s controversial ending (no spoilers!), they were definitely happy to hear that series creator David Chase was on board to direct the film adaptation. Fans will get to see an even more enlightening look at the upbringing of infamous Sopranos crime boss Tony Soprano on the big screen. There are a lot of awesome looking movies coming out this year, but we honestly can’t hide our excitement about this one in particular!

Opening on: March 12, 2021, with simultaneous release on HBO Max

Black Widow

Marvel fans rejoice! The comic book juggernaut turned Hollywood powerhouse is back with yet another adaptation of its cinematic universe. Black Widow follows the story of spy and combat expert Natasha Romanoff, played of course by the one and only Scarlett Johansson. There aren’t a ton of details out about the film as of now, but don’t worry Black Widow fans! We can certainly guarantee this film won’t be nearly as interesting or cover as rich of a world as the so-called “SOPU” (Sopranos Universe) featured in The Many Saints of Newark.

90s kids will rejoice this summer as the long awaited sequel of Space Jam finally arrives! We’ve been hearing about a reboot of the beloved 1996 Looney Tunes flick starring the iconic Michael Jordan for what feels like decades. While the full Space Jam 2 cast has not been released as of now, fans of the original will be excited to see NBA superstar LeBron James leading the way for what will definitely be a star studded squad. Speaking of a “new legacy,” let us remind you that the late James Gandolfini’s own son Michael will be playing the role of young Tony Soprano. Now that’s pretty amazing.

Fast & Furious 9

If you love the Fast & Furious franchise, you’ll definitely love this. Fast cars? Got em. Guys with big muscles? Oh you betcha. Fight scenes? Most likely. The movies in this franchise usually follow a pretty clear storyline that super fans will love, but for those looking for a film that packs a punch and does it with a little bit more nuance…dare we suggest The Many Saints of Newark?

The Many Saints of Newark

Look we know we’ve already included the release of The Many Saints of Newark on this list, but we can’t downplay how exciting this movie is going to be for big Sopranos fans like us. It really is a blessing to be able to see the origins of our favorite fictional New Jersey crime syndicate. Quite frankly we were bummed when we heard last year that the release date would be pushed to 2021, but we understand. Good things come to those who wait.

Opening on: March 12, 2021, with simultaneous release on HBO Max


Honestly this is kind of nerdy stuff right here…but we love it! The trailer absolutely kicks ass. Unfortunately it might be tough for us to squeeze a watch in on this one. We’ll likely be on our third or fourth rewatching of The Many Saints of Newark and won’t have time to see any other movies. Maybe we’ll check it out in 2022 though!

Opening on: October 1, 2021, with simultaneous release on HBO Max

A Quiet Place Part II

The success of the 2018 horror flick A Quiet Place, directed by and starring John Krasinski along with his wife Emily Blunt, was honestly a bit of a surprise! It’s rare for horror films to transcend the genre and receive both box office and critical acclaim, yet A Quiet Place managed to do both; grossing over $340 million and earning Academy Award nominations. The real life couple are back for a sequel as they continue to navigate their family through a post-apocalyptic world inhibited by deadly monsters with a crazy sense of hearing. Those freaky monsters almost sounds as harrowing as the villains that Tony Soprano faced over the years, but we’ll let you be the judge of that.

Opening on: April 23, 2021

Top Gun: Maverick

It appears that 2021 will have no shortage of movie sequels thanks to the addition of Top Gun: Maverick! Tom Cruise is reprising his role as fighter pilot Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, and he doesn’t appear to be pulling any punches. He’s been known to do a lot of his own stunts in the past, and Top Gun: Maverick is no exception. You know what other 2021 release that will probably have some cool action scenes of its own? The Many Saints of Newark. It might not feature fighter jet scenes taking place thousands of feet in the air, but a good old fashioned shootout or a car chase is just as cool.

The Sopranos

Let’s just cut past the bullshit: if you’re going to see The Many Saints of Newark you have to first watch the television show that inspired it: The Sopranos. Doesn’t matter if it’s your first time with the series or if you’ve already seen it, you have to watch it again. What other television show presents such a robust and thought-provoking world that captures the intricacies of modern life, the myths behind “The American Dream,” and the role that our past plays in our present? It’s a truly remarkable storytelling experience unlike any other that covers anger, sadness, depression, humor, gabagool, loyalty, and so much more. Seriously if you don’t watch this whole series before The Many Saints of Newark comes out were going to be pissed off. We’re going to break into your house and sign you up for a free trial of HBO Max using our own credit card just so you get a chance to watch this unforgettable television show.

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run

This looks pretty fun. We’d like to believe that Tony Soprano enjoyed Spongebob Squarepants from time to time.

Opening on: February 2021 on VOD and CBS All Access
