Not Fade Away

Writer and director David Chase (creator of "The Sopranos") is making the jump from television to features with his first film Not Fade Away, a 60s set coming-of-age drama (formerly known as Twylight Zones) following a rock 'n roll band named The Twylight Zones who try to make it big after being blown away by The Rolling Stones performing on television. The film looks like a great feature directorial debut for Chase, and it's exactly the kind of film for which I'm an absolute sucker. John Magaro and Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows) star in the film with James Gandolfini, Brad Garrett, Isiah Whitlock Jr. and more. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for David Chase's Not Fade Away originally from Apple:

The first feature film written and directed by David Chase since finishing up "Sopranos", Not Fade Away is set in suburban New Jersey the 1960s, about a group of friends who form a rock band and try to make it big. Bella Heathcote and newcomer John Magaro star, along with James Gandolfini, Brad Garrett, Christopher McDonald, Isiah Whitlock Jr. and Lisa Lampanelli. The film is premiering at the New York Film Festival and Austin Film Festivals this fall, where we expect to hear some good buzz. Paramount will be releasing Not Fade Away in limited theaters starting December 21st. We'll keep an eye out. What do you think?

i really like has a "killing bono" vibe - and since i really liked that one, i'll probably enjoy this as well - i'm in!

ethan - this looks like a really nice film and nobody is coming in to watch the trailer - why not change your header to include iron man or batman making an appearance in the trailer and this will have over 50 comments within an's so sad that (for the most part) only super hero films get any real notice on this site anymore.

I hear your concerns... We always post any/everything we think is worthy of being featured, indies or big blockbusters or otherwise. I live for amazing indie/smaller films, so I always try to seek them out. We do our best! Also, just because there are no comments doesn't mean people aren't watching. But yes, I do wish more of these excellent smaller films would get noticed, too.

thanks, buddy. i'm not trying to change the world and my above comment is a little "tongue-in cheek" - but, it's more about a trend i've noticed over the last couple years on here. heck, i remember the green lantern movie had over 50 hits in a short amount of time...... and yet, every week, there are some really great movies you guys go to the trouble of finding for us and many of them get 10 or less comments. like everyone, i have my likes and dislikes; but, i'm a movie fan - and always try to look at everything that comes out. it just makes me wonder why more people aren't looking at these lesser known films....there really are a lot of great indies! hey - did you see "killing bono"? i really liked that. i'm going to watch it tonight - even though i've watched it more than a few times,this trailer made me want to see it again, this evening!

Looks pretty good. I have a feeling Gandolfini will steal this!

looks like garbage from a person who destroyed a great mob series with a lousy ending...david chase can go screw himself, and crawl back to the hole he came from..
