David Chase Gives Us An Idea Of What He's Been Doing Post-SOPRANOS With The First Trailer For NOT FADE AWAY!!
The Kidd here...
Since THE SOPRANOS wrapped up on HBO back in 2007 (Wow... Has it really been five years already?), we've been hearing about David Chase working on his first feature film with no idea necessarily what type of story he'd be looking to tell. Fans of the show were of course hoping for something mob-related, but Chase couldn't have come up with something more different than his previous work.
About the only thing NOT FADE AWAY has in common with THE SOPRANOS is a little James Gandolfini; otherwise NOT FADE AWAY takes the path of a coming-of-age story built around a New Jersey band hoping to chase their dreams. The film is set to premiere over the weekend at the New York Film Festival, and it looks like those in attendance might be in for a good one from a glimpse at the first trailer from Paramount.

You know its not gonna be your standard coming of age story. Chase will bring the goods.

Tom Hanks has already filed suit.

I thought they just ran out of film.

It's called Not Fade Away? And the music in the trailer is fucking Parachute Woman??? I don't care what it's about, they've already got my money
Oct. 5, 2012, 2:37 p.m. CST
Get fucking over it, people. It was the only way to end the series right

Hey, you twerps go on and on about your emaciated stick-chicks and their plastic boobage. I can get one request in there for a flash of full-frontal from "my Tony."

the end of the sopranos is one of the most beautifully shot sequence of all time. Can't wait for this

This cat created imo, the greatest television show of all time. Yes, there were hicups along the way, but to me it was brillant.

Which elevates it above the wire. The 6th season(both parts) are just amazing. The subtext, themes and acting are unparalleled in the visual medium of film/television.

I'd watch Chase directing Gandolifini taking a dump.

That gets my ticket. One of the best actors out there, hands down.

One of the most misunderstood endings as well. The level of artistry on display is something that will never(Mad Men included) be topped. Ever.
Oct. 5, 2012, 6:14 p.m. CST
Not to keep going on about it but anyone who was upset about the sopranos ending read the masterofsopranos blog(just google it) and prepare to have your mind blown
I hope while doing press for this new film that chase is asked if he's read or heard of the blog because whoever wrote it took an insane amount of time. I'd like to know what Chase thinks of someone solving his mystery and how right the guy really was

That "brilliant" cut to black finale was a slap in a face to the show's fans. They're the ones who kept the show on the air all those years, not just Chase or HBO. If no one had watched it, it would have been cancelled asap. Stop praising that pretentious shit ending already.

...is pretty much perfect. Can't wait for this.

best 2 shows I ever saw.

seriously...plenty of friends of mine (including myself) caught up with "the Wire" many years later...only to realise it was just as good as the Sapronos, while being a completely different beast of greatness. YOU will not regret the WIRE joureny. It takes about 5 episdoes into the first season...but then...it sinks its teeth into you...and then a few episodes later...you say aloud, when the an episode ends.."This, THIS fucking show is amazing" you can thank me in a month from now..in another talkback. Get them from your local Library for free and in high-def. Omars coming

I just finished Season 5 about two months ago. The Wire is without a doubt the best show I've ever seen. If anyone is a bit iffy on whether to check it out, CHECK IT OUT. It takes a couple episodes but you will not regret it.

Anyone who doesn't agree is ignorant. It's as brilliant as any cinematic masterpiece. Every single shot of the ending is CRITICAL to the whole of the scene. ndally, thanks for pointing out the masterofsopranos blog, his breakdown of the POV pattern in the last scene is just awesome. David Chase is truly a genius. I'll go see NOT FADE AWAY because I know it will be smart.

A few comments down the original poster in that thread admits he read the story wrong, and that David Chase was NOT saying Tony was dead.

That was band's name too, though I don't know if it'll stick for final cut, particularly considering the sadly unavoidable vampire confusion. No, of course It's not about Springsteen; As I understood it, It's Semi-Autobiographical of Chase's early years. I'm grateful to Chase, by extension, for this film. It just may have played a coincidentally significant role in my own life.

ndally, The Sopranos is onbviously great, but no, it is not operating on a whole other level from The Wire
They're both terrific, and I wasn't aware that the two shows had to compete with each other in some bizarre mindspace where we can't love and acknowledge them both. There are a lot of shows I love. The Sopranos and The Wire are two of them. Stop imagining that there are conflicts between two unrelated works of art.
Oct. 6, 2012, 6:40 p.m. CST
I'm a big fan of "The Sopranos" and Chase, so I'm excited for this.
Oct. 7, 2012, 10:09 a.m. CST
But when discussing "the best of" it's fair to compare the two being as both are seminal moments in TV history but for different reasons. Being as this is a talkback I thought I'd give my opinion on the matter.
Oct. 7, 2012, 11:08 p.m. CST
Add John Goodman and it would be the most awesome thing ever.

There are a lot of elements in that trailer that look to be out of his early life- confrontational relationship with the father, motorcycle crash, etc....
