‘Gangster Squad’ Gets First Trailer

Posted: May 13, 2012 in Movies

It would seem that the second half of 2012 is set to be the year of the gangster seeing how we’ll be getting the prohibition era film Lawless and now we’ve got the first trailer for Ryan Gosling’s and Josh Brolin’s film Gangster Squad.  Both films look spot on and both films spot star studded casts, it just seems that Gangster Squad will be the lesser of the two movies.

The film stars Ryan Gosling and Josh Brolin as LAPD cops in the late 1940’s – early 1950’s as a gangster, played by Sean Penn, begins to take over crime in the city.  Brolin’s character is tasked with putting together a secret team to go to war with the gangsters and bring law and order back to the city.  It looks gritty and has top notch actors in it, however the first trailer for it just comes across as too “let’s try to be L.A. Confidential” to me.

You be the judge.
