Warner Bros has unveiled the trailer for the upcoming "Gangster Squad" crime thriller, starring Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn, Nick Nolte, Robert Patrick, Michael Pena, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Mackie, and Emma Stone. Check it out below.
Plot: Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and -- if he has his way -- every bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It's enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop... except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O'Mara (Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen's world apart.
The new movie is directed by Ruben Fleischer (30 Minutes or Less, Zombieland). It has yet to get a release date.
Looks good. Great cast, good story good director and good distribution company. To bad they f*cked the poodle on the Jay Z soundtrack. Sometimes its OK to NOT have rap on a soundtrack you douchelipjackmuffins
Ahh this looks cool. We need more films set in this era. LA Confidential automatically springs to mind and comparing any film to that masterpiece will leave me underwhelmed so I'm gonna watch this on it's own merits. Ryan Goslin's further cementing his place as one of the better actors in Hollywood and Brolin is trying to re-salvage his reputation after Jonah Hex and the most probably sh*t MIB3. I'll try catch this at the pictures.
Off-Topic: Get the Gringo the Lethal Weapon actioner for which you people were hoping. More like Edge of Darkness but set in a place full of dirty, sweaty Mexicans and some stock violence. Also, a kid.
Not really Mel's action come-back I see. He better hop on Expendables 3 or else I might forget he's even alive.
End of Watch and this are my two movies to watch, just look at the cats for both films. Incredible! Sean Penn will get an oscar nom, I'm betting on it. Though Ruben is still learning as a director, he shows potential. Just hope this doesn't pan out like Public Enemies, which I blame Mann for F**cking up.
What? GET THE GRINGO is not Mel's comeback?...bummer. He still has MACHETE KILLS to START salvaging his career. LOL.
I won't dog him until people let him behind the camera...now, if he f*cks THAT up...then his stock will go down in my book.
And regarding THE BEAVER, I still say that sh!t should be blamed on the director. Actors are tools to paint a potrait of a movie. Foster clearly needed unstable orange, but instead used Mel f*cked-up green, IMO.
