HOLY SH!T: The Trailer for “Gangster Squad” Has Badass Written All Over It

Gangster-Squad1

After months of behind-the-scenes imagery and teasing news clips, the official trailer for Ruben Fleischer’s Gangster Squad has arrived in all its gun-toting glory.

Based off a famous black list script from Will Beall that eventually found itself at Warner, our first look at Gangster Squad provides just enough action to get your blood pumping and plenty of looks at the all-star cast of Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, Emma Stone, and Sean Penn. The logline is as follows:

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.

You can view the first trailer for The Gangster Squad after the jump. If you like what you see, be sure to catch the film when it opens everywhere later this year.
