John Travolta stars in Gotti, for which a new trailer has just been released

“Let me tell you, New York City is the greatest city in the world. I was a kid in these streets and I made it the top,” John Travolta says as John Gotti in the trailer for the upcoming biopic Gotti. If anyone could claim “My Way” as a theme song it was the Dapper Don of the Gambino Crime Family.

Gotti “made his bones doing a piece of work for Don Carlo Gambino,” the trailer tells us. From that day on, the Teflon Don was a man on the rise. Gotti has a similar look to Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas. The film will tell Gotti’s story over three decades, but will largely focus on the years after he was made boss by killing the top guy and then assuming his place. 

Directed by Kevin Connolly, Gotti also stars Travolta’s real-life wife Kelly Preston as Gotti’s wife Victoria. John Gotti, Jr. will be played by Spencer Lofranco  (King Cobra). Chris Kerson from True Detective will play Willie Boy Johnson. Gotti also stars Spencer Pruitt Taylor Vince, Stacy Keach, Chris Mulkey and William DeMeo.

Gotti arrives in US cinemas and on demand in December. No UK release date has been announced.
