Trailer Watch: James Gandolfini’s Last Film The Drop
Adapted from Dennis Lehane’s short story Animal Rescue, Michaël Roskam’s English-language debut The Drop also marks James Gandolfini’s final film appearance. Transposed to New York from Lehane’s preferential Boston setting, The Drop finds Tom Hardy (doing his best Ryan Gosling) and Gandolfini on the hunt for a stolen deposit from the nightly dive bar “drop.” Gangsters, guns, dogs and a Noomi Rapace romance ensue. Obviously no stranger to the mob, Gandolifini appears a bit softer around the edges here than in his iconic Soprano role. The Drop will be released by Fox Searchlight on September 19.
