Gangster Squad

Though we've seen both an official US trailer and a similar international trailer for Ruben Fleischer's period crime thriller Gangster Squad, there haven't been any official posters promoting the film. Well, that changes today as a big banner has just shown up featuring character slices, each leading into the next, with a glamorous, retro feeling. I wouldn't be surprised to see some individual character posters like this sometime down the road. Gangster Squad was easily one of our most anticipated films of the 2nd half of 2012, and with a cast like Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Emma Stone, Sean Penn and more, it's easy to see why.

Here's the first banner for Ruben Fleischer's Gangster Squad from Yahoo:

Gangster Squad - First Banner

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?

Whatever effect they used did a number on Mr. Penn's face. I always love a throwback.

I wonder if Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone have done it yet...

This and Lawless are 2 of my most anticipated for the end of summer. Both look terrific in different ways
