Check Out Eight Stylish New Character Banners for 'Gangster Squad'
Not too long ago, a batch of character posters for Gangster Squad showed up online, but they still had the old release date on them. Now some slightly different character banners have showed up giving the spotlight to Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Anthony Mackie, Giovanni Ribisi, Robert Patrick and Michael Peña, but I'm surprised Nick Nolte didn't get his own character poster. It'll be interesting to see if audiences are still interested in the film after the delay from this past September to January. I'm betting it'll win the weekend, but it would've been nice to see how it fared in awards season.
Here are the new character banners for Ruben Fleischer's Gangster Squad from Facebook:
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 send the film to theaters on January 11th, 2013. You still excited?
