With the release of the first trailer for Ruben Fleischer’s Gangster Squad a couple of weeks ago, Warner Bros. has now released the first set of images for the for the upcoming crime drama.
Starring Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, Emma Stone and Josh Brolin and set in Los Angeles in 1949, the film is a colourful retelling of events surrounding a special task force known as the Gangster Squad’s efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time, the ruthless mob king Mickey Cohen (Penn).
The new images feature a ruthless Penn, Gosling looking charming and being seduced by Stone, and Brolin looking a little angry.
Gangster Squad is sure setting itself up to be one of this year’s must-sees, and we will be able to find out for ourselves from 9th November.
