Gangster Squad Banners

Gangster Squad has one of the best ensemble casts of 2013 as it hits the big screen in January.

Sean Penn is set to lead that cast while Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Anthony Mackie, Giovanni Ribisi, Michael Pena and Nick Nolte are all set to star.

Ruben Fleischer is in the director’s chair for the film in what is only his third feature film at the helm.

The movie reunites him with Stone after the pair worked together on Zombieland back in 2009.

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 released 11th January 2013.
