Five New Character Posters for Ruben Fleischer's 'Gangster Squad'
Though a lot of people didn't really like the most recent poster for Gangster Squad, the new trailer for the revised and delayed film was pretty damn great. Frankly, I like the stylized presentation that makes it feel like an old time gangster film, almost like a gritty Dick Tracy. Now a set of character posters have emerged for Ruben Fleischer anticipated film featuring Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Nick Nolte, Giovanni Ribisi and Anthony Mackie. We're especially anxious to see how the reshoots scheduled in the wake of the Aurora shootings integrate into the final cut of the film. Look below!

Note: We couldn't find these posters posted individually previously, but they still have the old release date and are simply a split up version of this original banner release back in July right here.
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?
