The SopranosCon guys are back for more. Sounds like they're taking our suggestions. Mainly letting celebs handle autograph purchases at their own booth. No ziti!

Famiglia!

Let us once again THANK YOU for attending SopranosCon - what a historic event! We made global news, got mentioned on The Tonight Show, and received blessings from members of the Gandolfini family. We have received thousands of emails, comments, pictures, stories, tags, posts, etc... we are HUMBLED to have your support. We could not do this without you.

We have spent a week going through your emails and are still working through them. But DON’T STOP is our motto, and we have already met as a team to review many of your comments and suggestions to apply to our next event, MobMovieCon! This event will take place at Harrah's Resort and Casino in Atlantic City on April 18-19, 2020. This will be Comic-Con meets ALL mob movies, but we would never abandon the greatest TV show in history. We will also be honoring legendary actors and their work, and films like The Godfather, Goodfellas, Scarface, A Bronx Tale and so many more. This will once again be the first time this has ever been done and the cast members that will be in attendance will once again make this event HISTORIC.

So other than the different movies, what is the biggest change? We are going to host the first ever Mob Movie Awards on the night of April 18th. If you buy a VIP ticket, you will be in attendance when we give out the awards that these actors so deserve, which will all be entirely voted on BY THE FANS. Who will win best film? Best actor? Best hit? Best villain? You'll have to buy your ticket to find out. We will be LIVE streaming all over the world with a variety of hosts and musical acts - think the Academy Awards and The Emmy's – but just for MOB MOVIES AND SERIES ONLY.

What can you expect?
You can expect that we will be stimulating all of your senses. Once you walk into the 125,000 square feet, you will be taken back in history to some of the legendary scenes that have made the mob movie genre so special. You will walk into scenes and enjoy taking photos with real memorabilia from the actual movies. Think Universal Studios meets the mob world. You will enjoy the smells of the foods from our feast with added food vendors that are themed from the movies. You will hear music that will make you reminisce on the first time you watched The Godfather. You will touch exhibits that will take you back into time and feel props that were used in the actual movies. And let’s not forget - YOU GET TO MEET THE REAL ACTORS THAT WER E IN THESE MOVIES/SHOWS.

Do I have to buy boxes of ziti? No. Every cast member will be handling their own booth. You will pay for autographs, selfies or memorabilia directly to the cast members. We will have all prices and times ahead of time. For VIP'S that will be getting a certain amount of autographs with their ticket - they will provided a voucher and it can be used directly with the cast with WHOEVER YOU WANT TO CHOOSE.

How will you handle long lines? We are happy to announce a 3-year deal with Eventbrite – the leader in online ticketing. After the tremendous success from SopranosCon, Eventbrite has decided to partner with us on our events. Representatives will be on location during each event to make sure that the check-in process is smoother than ever.

If I get a VIP package, will it be limited to a certain amount of people so I can get a VIP experience? 100%. The venue has two separate floors. The first floor will be exhibits, the feast, autograph row, etc. On the second floor, it will be strictly VIP's. You will NEED a special ticket and a special pass to get upstairs. During a designated time, you will be ushered into a certain area where you WILL meet and greet the cast. This will be a special time that will be contracted with each cast member that is in attendance. We are limiting the tickets to allow for a professional photograph to be taken for a once in a lifetime keepsake for each of the VIP ticket holders. This will be STRICTLY monitored at ALL times.

Does VIP get me into the Mob Movie Awards? YES it will. You'll have designated seats that will be chosen ahead of time. Your ticket will also come with a sit-down dinner provided by Harrah's Resort and Casino. Lastly, your ticket will allow you to a cocktail reception prior to the start of the awards ceremony.

BY THE WAY ... VIP'S will be choosing the winners of the awards. Yes, you heard that correctly. You will be part of the show. This is going be as historic as we mentioned.

As you can see, we have taken the time to listen and improve all aspects of the event. This once again will be FOR THE FANS. BY THE FANS.

Now the BEST part. My partners and I want to say THANK YOU for being a part of SopranosCon. People came from all over the world and we appreciate you more than you know. Without you - there would be NO events. For that, we are offering you 25% off any ticket if you purchase on Cyber Monday. You will also receive a complimentary signed photo from one of the attending cast members (we will choose) by December 25th. Limited to purchases on December 2, 2019 only, shipping costs may apply.

Why Cyber Monday? Cyber Monday is the BIGGEST shopping day of the year. We want you to be able to purchase tickets for Christmas gifts or if you just want to treat yourself once again. This is a THANK YOU from all of us. This will be the biggest discount we will be offering and its ONLY for you. Use the code SUPERFAN25 at https://mobmoviecon.eventbrite.com or www.mobmoviecon.com.

Let’s get ready to make history again! Merry Christmas!!

Michael, Joe, and Danny

And looking over the movies/shows they will be featuring, some guesses on the biggest of the realistic names they can book would be Steven Bauer from Scarface, Paul Sorvino from Goodfellas, Val Kilmer from Heat, Gianni Russo from Godfather.

Needless to say anyone more prominent ain't doing this.

I could see James Caan MAYBE, that would get me there. Also need Armand Assante, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Tom Sizemore, Martin Sheen, etc., if we are to stretch credulity here. The reality is most of the names they already listed play small roles in those films, as it is. One Sopranos name I'd really like is Joseph Siravo, who played young Johnny Boy, and was a villain in Carlito's Way.

A big coup would be Lorraine Bracco for Sopranos and Goodfellas, but I don't think she wants any part of this shit.

Bracco AND Imperioli, along with a few other odds and ends from other stuff get me super close, as much as I do not want any part of this trip.

Needless to say, I don't see myself going to this. AC is 3 hours away with no traffic and my names won't be here.

Any decent name would get me there if I can stay over and make a trip out of it.
