‘Gangster Squad’ Trailer: Sean Penn as Mickey Cohen
The newest trailer for Gangster Squad has arrived. Warner Bros. released the new trailer last night of the new Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) film. Gangster Squad follows LA’s finest cops (Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Mackie) as they try to take down organized crime leader Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn). It’s certainly a period peace in the same realm of LA Confidential, featuring classic cars and outfits from the early 50’s. There’s also a hint at romance between Emma Stone‘s character and Ryan Gosling. They’ve had great chemistry in other films, so it should be exciting to see them have another go.
Gangster Squad doesn’t have a firm release date, but here’s hoping that the film comes to theaters this year.
Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and–if he has his way–every wire 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 (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart. “Gangster Squad” is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD’s efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time.
