Fans of the late James Gandolfini, who died of a heart attack in June, are getting a glimpse of the actor’s final film this week with Tuesday’s release of the first trailer for “The Drop.”

In the film, Gandolfini plays Marv, a former criminal boss who owns a bar that serves as a money drop for gangsters. Marv is suspected in a botched robbery. The film, which also stars Noomi Rapace and Tom Hardy, is set to hit theaters on Sept. 19.

Gandolfini was 51 when he died while vacationing in Rome last year. He starred as Tony Soprano in the Emmy-winning series “The Sopranos”and appeared with Julia Louis-Dreyfus in the romantic comedy "Enough Said," which was released in September.

“The Drop,” originally titled “Animal Rescue,” more closely reflects his “Sopranos” role, with lines including: "When I walked into a place, people sat up straight, they noticed. I was respected; I was feared. And that meant something," Gandolfini's characters says in the trailer.

The R-rated film was written by Dennis Lehane and directed by Michaƫl Roskam.

"It was such an honor to work with Mr. Gandolfini, and nothing but a pleasure to see him perform. He was one of the greatest," Roskam told The Wrap last year.

Fans on Twitter were looking forward to the film.
