TRAILER: Sean Penn Is Ready to Face Ryan Gosling's 'Gangster Squad'
Thursday, October 11, 2012
In the aftermath of the Aurora, Colo., movie theater shootings, Warner Bros. made the decision to remove a scene from Gangster Squad that showed gangsters opening fire in a theater. This move required reshoots and pushed the release of Gangster Squad from this fall to Jan. 11, 2012. With that date now getting closer, the studio released a new trailer for Gangster Squad. The movie stars Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Emma Stone, Sean Penn, Nick Nolte, Anthony Mackie and Michael Pena.
I normally can't stand Penn, but he looks good in this. I will have some trouble hearing the line, "You're talking to God, so you might as well swear to me," without picturing Christian Bale's Batman snarling it to a crooked cop hanging upside down.
