Gangster Squad is up there as one of our most anticipated movies of 2012 and it’s one of the first movies of the year to be released. Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve been throwing up exclusives from the movie and today is the third and final one. If you missed the first two you can see our exclusive image here and a trailer (sizzle reel) here.
Gangster Squad has an awesome cast which includes Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Mackie, Michael Peña, Emma Stone, Nick Nolte and Robert Patrick. It’s directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zomebieland, 30 Minutes or Less) and is released in the UK January 10th.
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.
