The new film, from Michael R. Roskam, carries the weight of being James Gandolfini's final film, and it looks scintillating. Co-starring fellow heavyweights such as the always impressive Tom Hardy, and Noomi Rapace, the crime-drama, based on a book by Dennis Lehane (of "Mystic River" and "Gone Baby Gone" fame) tells the story of a bar where dirty money is flushed under the watchful eye of a bartender who may know more than he lets on when they bar is robbed.

Here's the official synopsis:

"The Drop" follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters - "money drops" - in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv (James Gandolfini), Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood's past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living - no matter the cost.

Roskam, who's film "Bullhead" was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, looks to have created a shady and violent film that deals with the idea of family and loyalty, trademarks of the Lehane sub-genre of crime thrillers. Boasting a dark and brooding atmosphere, Gandolfini seems to be right at home, in what will be the last time he appears in a new film. 

Fox Searchlight is set to release "The Drop" on September 19th. Watch the trailer below.
