Trailer for GANGSTER SQUAD Starring Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, and Ryan Gosling


Here is the first trailer for Ruben Fleischer‘s (Zombieland) Gangster Squad starring everyone cool in Hollywood.  The trailer is awesome, but that’s easy for me to say because I love watching anything that takes us back to the 1940s.  Sean Penn is gangster Mickey Cohen, Josh Brolin is the head of the LA task force trying to bring him down.

The film stars Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, Emma Stone, Nick Nolte, Michael Peña, Anthony Mackie, and Giovanni Ribisi. Gangster Squad opens 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. “The 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.
