“The Many Saints of Newark” performed incredibly well on HBO Max.
According to Variety, the “Sopranos” prequel was the most-watched film on the streaming platform the week of its release, and it was viewed three times as much as the second most-watched film. Variety didn’t specify the exact number of views. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Furthermore, viewership of “The Sopranos” is up 65% week-over-week due to the hype surrounding “The Many Saints of Newark.”
In fact, as a film by itself, it was insanely disappointing. However, if it’s used as a building block, then I think people will view it much differently.
Given the success “The Many Saints of Newark” had on HBO Max, it’s hard to imagine that Warner Bros. won’t push for more movies.
If there’s one thing Hollywood loves, it’s franchises that print money. If “The Many Saints of Newark” gets it done, then it gets it done.
