First Trailer for Gangster Squad



Warner Bros. has unleashed the first trailer for the period crime drama Gangster Squad [TFGSQ] on Apple.  Based on real events uncovered by the Los Angeles Times article 'Tales From the Gangster Squad.' the Ruben Fleischer [RFLEI] directed film looks more popcorn like Untouchables than serious like L.A. Confidential.

Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn [SPENN]) 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 [JBROL]) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling [RGOSL]), 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
