With hype building steadily around the movie's release, many might be wondering just how to get a taste of the highly-anticipated film. Luckily, there are several ways to get involved. The movie will be available for stream on HBO Max, the premium online video-on-demand service that delivers programming in high definition (HD). Once downloaded, a consumer can select and watch the movies whenever they choose. So how exactly can one go about grabbing an HD stream of The Many Saints of Newark?
The film will be available on Friday, October 1st at no additional cost. To get the full benefits, viewers are encouraged to watch The Many Saints of Newark two or more times. Each new episode is offered on a different day so that viewers who love the film will always have the opportunity to watch it. The first episode will debut on Thursday, followed by "eps" on Friday and Saturday. If a viewer likes the trailers and thought the film was good, they can continue to watch up to four episodes per week. Viewers will not need to pay for HBO service in order to view The Many Saints of Newark online.
The film has also been promoted heavily on various social media platforms. The trailer was even listed among top films of the year on Facebook, which is an indication that people are buzzing about the movie. The Many Saints of Newark was not only one of the most buzzed-about movies released in summer, but it also stars breakout talent Chris Evans, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Craig Robinson, Jacob Lofland, and Mary McDonnell. The movie is based on the true story of the overnight sensation chef Mario Gostic, who opened the popular G&P Italian Kitchen in New Jersey's West Orange Hills.
The film had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival, but it was not able to attract the audience that was expected. It is now scheduled for a nationwide theatrical release on Wednesday, August 5th. Some local theaters have already started showing The Many Saints of Newark. The Telluride Film Festival is a month long celebration of American cinema that highlights films from both the mainstream and indie film industries. The festival will also include music and theater events in addition to an acclaimed selection of classic films.
The trailer was not the only reason for the low attendance at The Many Saints of Newark's premier showing. Audiences were largely disappointed with the film, largely due to poor special effects and script. Many of the scenes were overly brief and had shaky acting. The Telluride Film Festival was canceled shortly after the premier because of threats of violence against moviegoers who did not like the film.
There are no theaters in New Jersey or in the state of Colorado that will be screening The Many Saints of Newark this weekend. The movie is available on DVD but not in any quantity. The remaining theaters will most likely play it on a limited release basis beginning on Tuesday, October 12th. A few other local theaters are expected to show it as well, so it will probably be a hit before it is taken off the market.
