Ah, Tommy Guns. What can’t they do? Well, your laundry, for one, but then you could just use your Tommy Gun to force the old lady down the block to do that, so you know, win-win. Anyways, here are some new images from Ruben Fleischer’s period gangster flick “Gangster Squad”. Yes, it appears they’ve dumped the “The” part of the title and are only going with “Gangster Squad” now. I can dig it.
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.
Starring Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Sean Penn, Giovanni Ribisi, Josh Brolin, Nick Nolte, Michael Peña, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Mireille Enos, Robert Patrick, and Josh Pence.
