He’s Rocky Balboa and John Rambo, dark comic book antihero (“Judge Dredd”) and mercenary squad leader Barney Ross (“The Expendables”) – and he has no idea how to use the three shells (“Demolition Man”). Yes, Sylvester Stallone has burned himself into our memories with a lot of iconic and also quite different roles. However, they have one thing in common: They come from movies. Accordingly, fans of the action star can look forward to a special premiere in the near future. Then With “Tulsa King” the first TV series with Sylvester Stallone in the lead role is already coming up!
The new trailer makes you want more. And it won’t be too long before we get to see exactly that – namely more. “Tulsa King” celebrates its US premiere on November 13th on Paramount+, the new streaming service that will also be launched in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in December (both as an independent platform and embedded in Sky). We assume that the Stallone format will be available in this country right at the start or shortly thereafter.
Dwight “The General” Manfredi (Sylvester Stallone) spent 25 years behind bars, but after a quarter of a century, the New York mafioso is finally released – only to pick up exactly where he left off.
However, his former mafia family does not exactly welcome him with open arms, they even send him to Tulsa to expand the business in that region. And that is tantamount to exile. Manfredi feels abandoned by the syndicate’s rulers, but now sees an opportunity in this: he wants to build his own empire.
While main actor Sylvester Stallone should act as a crowd puller for “Tulsa King”, genre fans probably also know the big, promising names behind the camera of the series. The “Tulsa King” creators, Taylor Sheridan and Terence Winter, are two men who brought to life some of the most successful and powerful gangster stories of recent memory.
Sheridan, who “Sons Of Anarchy” fans should know primarily as Deputy Chief Hale, made a name for himself with his grandiose screenplays for “Sicario” and “Hell Or High Water” as well as “Wind River”, which he also directed himself to talk Winter, on the other hand, is one of the defining figures of gangster television: He was part of the permanent team of authors of “The Sopranos” and finally launched his own, celebrated crime format with “Boardwalk Empire”.
In addition to Stallone, the cast in front of the camera also includes als Tron: Legacy starring Garrett Hedlund, Martin Starr (“Fuck it, full it”), as well as Tatiana Zappardino and Chris Caldovino, who also starred together in Martin Scorsese’s impostor biopic “The Wolf Of Wall Street” were seen. Caldovino was also part of the cast of for several seasons “The Sopranos” (as Billy Leotardo) as well as the cast of Boardwalk Empire (as Tonino Sandrelli).
