New 'Gangster Squad' Poster is Retro and Modern at the Same Time
Now that the scorned trailer for Gangster Squad is in the past, it's time to look to the delayed January release of the film. And now the first official poster for the film from Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer has surfaced. It's strange to think this is the first poster, but in looking back there's only been one big quad banner for the film. This new poster uses the same style in that it looks like a vintage poster with contemporary imagery and style. Either way, this poster isn't going to sell the film. It's the cast that includes Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Sean Penn, Josh Brolin and more that will bring in audiences.
Here's the first poster for Ruben Fleishcer's Gangster Squad via The Daily Blam:
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?
