First Trailer For Gangster Squad Arrives Online
So far director Ruben Fleischer has made two movies in his career. The first was Zombieland, a way-funnier-than-expected comedy about the end of the world, and 30 Minutes or Less, a comedy about a pizza boy who is strapped with a bomb and told to rob a bank. So naturally a few heads were turned when it was announced that Fleischer would be directing the dark period drama Gangster Squad. Then he added the amazing cast of Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, Robert Patrick, Michael Peña, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Mackie, Emma Stone, and Sean Penn and things looked even better. Now we have the film's first trailer and we want to watch the movie immediately.
Check out the trailer below or in HD over on Apple.
The film is based on the true story of what happened in Los Angeles back in 1949 when New York gangster Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) left the east cost to find a new home in Southern California. Thanks to his status on the opposite coast and the absence of any other mob presence in the city, Cohen was given free reign to rule L.A. as part of his crime empire. Sick of the poison that Cohen was spreading around the city, a small division of the L.A.P.D. officers grouped together to help rid their city of the cancer. The movie doesn't currently have a release date, but if you wish to read more about the movie you can head over to our Blend Film Database.
