By now you’re probably well aware that Ruben Fleischer and Warner Bros. went back and re-edited and re-shot some scenes for “Gangster Squad” due to a theater shooting sequence in the original film that, in the aftermath of “The Dark Knight Rises” theater shooting, was simply a no-go. And so, expect that sequence to be excised completely from the finished film, and this new, latest trailer is a good indication of that. What theater sequence? Exactly. It’s still a slam-bang trailer, though, so take a gander, take a ganderers.
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, Josh Pence, and busting heads January 11, 2013.
