Must Watch: First Full Trailer for Ruben Fleischer's 'Gangster Squad'
We've seen a couple cool photos from Ruben Fleischer's (Zombieland) period drama Gangster Squad that boasts an impressive cast including Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Emma Stone, Anthony Mackie, Nick Nolte, Bryan Cranston, Michael Pena, Giovanni Ribisi and more. But now the real meat and potatoes have arrived with the first trailer for the film which follows a vigilante police force that fought the gangsters of the 40's and 50's in Los Angeles on their own terms. Sometimes Penn looks a bit like a Dick Tracy villain, but this flick looks amazing and likely a great stride for Fleischer as a director. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Ruben Fleischer's Gangster Squad, available 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 send the film to theaters sometime later this fall. What do you think?
