First Look: American Gangster with Denzel and Crowe
The first official photo for the upcoming movie American Gangster, courtest of Collider.com, features the two major stars Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe. The film is directed by Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator) and is about a drug lord in Harlem who smuggles heroin in by hiding it inside the coffins of American soldiers returning from Vietnam.
Denzel plays the drug smuggler Frank Lucas and Crowe plays Detective Richie Roberts.
The film is set in Harlmen in the 1970's and is going to be pretty elaborate with its period references, given Ridley Scott's involvement. I'm looking forward to this one quite a bit as a strong frontrunner this Holiday season. It's good to know that they've already set up some really good films for the winter, as it does get very cold in Colorado and there's no better place to be than inside a dark movie theater watching great movies.
American Gangster is currently set for release on November 2nd up against Jerry Seinfeld's Bee Movie.
