When beloved Jersey boy James Gandolfini passed away in June of last year, he left a vacancy in the entertainment world that likely will never be filled. Still, though, we have one final film to look forward to from Gandolfini: The Drop, which released its first trailer this week.

Dealing heavily with the Brooklyn gangster underworld, The Drop features Gandolfini opposite Noomi Rapace and Tom Hardy, the latter of which plays the bartender to Gandolfini’s bar owner. The pair allow criminal cash to flow through their bar, serving as a “drop” location for Brooklyn’s seedy underbelly. That is, until a stickup upends the whole enterprice, throwing Gandolfini and his loved ones into a hellish, criminal nightmare.

Shutter Island, Mystic River, and Gone Baby Gone writer Dennis Lehane penned the source novel, so expect this one to be similarly gritty—especially given that Lehane has worked on episodes of The Wire and Boardwalk Empire in the past. At one point in the trailer, Gandolfini says,  “When I walked into a place, people sat up straight, they noticed. I was respected; I was feared. And that met something.” So, let that set the tone for you.

Prior to The Drop, Gandolfini appeared in the 2013 romantic comedy, Enough Said. However, his character in the The Drop is much closer to the Tony Soprano we all know and love—albeit with a little more “regular schnook” thrown in. 

The Drop comes out September 19, but in the mean time, check out the trailer below:
