Gangster Squad Trailer

"We're not solving a case here - we're going to war." Warner Bros has premiered a new trailer for Ruben Fleischer's Gangster Squad, his LAPD cops-vs-mafia period piece based on real stories from the 40's and 50's. As we're all well aware, this was supposed to be released this weekend, but WB pushed it back to January after the Aurora Massacre in order to revise a few scenes that were a little too similar. They're back to remind us the movie still exists with this badass trailer. In the squad are Josh Brolin, Michael Peña, Ryan Gosling, Robert Patrick and Anthony Mackie, plus Sean Penn and Emma Stone, too. Enjoy!

Here's the brand new trailer for Ruben Fleischer's Gangster Squad, in high def from Apple:

The LAPD fights to keep the East Coast Mafia, run by Mickey Cohen, out of Los Angeles in the 1940s and 50s. Gangster Squad is being directed by Ruben Fleischer (of Zombieland, 30 Minutes or Less) from a screenplay written by Will Beall ("Castle"), based on Paul Lieberman's book. The cast includes Sean Penn as mobster Mickey Cohen, along with Brolin, Gosling, Peña, Patrick, Mackie, plus Emma Stone, Nick Nolte, Giovanni Ribisi, Frank Grillo and Mireille Enos. Quite an awesome cast. The film shot late last year around Los Angeles, and Warner Bros will be releasing on January 11th, 2013 after a delay. You still excited?

  • Looks awesome. Can't wait for this.
  • The energy is right in this trailer... and I think for once people can stop hoping that it will be LA Confidential for 2013... this has glorious pulp written all over it!
  • Big Boss
    Did the trailer really end like that, or is someone messin' with me?! Other than the abrupt cutoff, the movie looks great.
    • Its not supposed to cutoff like that... go to Apple Trailers for a better version.
      • Big Boss
        Cool, it's not just me. lol. I'll check the full one out then.
    Ha! Still looks badass.
  • guest
    Pretty sure I just saw the whole movie. Might download it.
  • Cody W
    The action looks badass
  • old fart
    Seems legit.Just one nag though;I hope there won't be too much of that hippity hoppity rap music that kids like so much.Kinda ruins the whole period vibe.
    • It's likely just for the promotional material. The last time I remember 'modern' music played 'out of setting' was in A Knight's Tale, I think. It's kinda funky. I doubt they'll do that here.

        Yeah, "We Will Rock You" would have been better if it was just featured in the trailer and not in the actual movie. Apart from a couple moments like that, it was a pretty good medieval flick. If a bit goofy and sappy.
        • Agreed...but I mean, I don't think people can say they expected to have modern music in that film, or that it didn't catch them off guard. It was certainly something that hadn't been done before to my knowledge...but something being unique doesn't promise that it's great and people will like it
      As long as its not being directed by Baz Luhrman I don't think we need to fear this.
  • Still looks great.
  • grimjob
    Good god this is going to be the shit! Looking forward to seeing Robert Patrick bust some heads again!

    Are we sure they revised it? Or did they just push it back?
    • We're 99% sure they revised it (and pushed it back). An update from Variety in July confirmed the delay which "gives the studio more time to reconceive and reshoot a pivotal setpiece." They then reshot an entire action scene in Chinatown in downtown LA, which you can see prominently in this new trailer near the end of it.
  • too much flash, not enough meat
  • Danimal
    "GOOD LAWD!"
  • dom
    Looks very intense!
  • GWills
    Why does WB have to cut all their trailers to a Jay-Z track??? COME UP WITH SOMETHING ELSE!!!!!!!!!!
  • pmarz
    Anyone else not able to watch these videos in FullFrame unless you go to Youtube? WTF? It used to work
  • castingcouch
    Good decision by Warners to retool that scene. Looks entertaining.
