Kind of a surprise, given that he barely features in the trailer, and his name isn't even given an on-screen mention like all the other stars of the movie.

But glad to see our man Anthony Mackie get some Gangster Squad character poster love. 

After its release date was pushed back, thanks in part to the the Aurora shootings in July, the film is now set for a January 11, 2013 release.

The film centers on the battle between legendary gangster Mickey Cohen and the hand-picked mystery team tasked to bring him down.

Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, Michael Pena, Anthony Mackie, Robert Patrick, Giovanni Ribisi and Nick Nolte, star.

    Based on the trailer that has been showing as part of the previews of other movies, I am on the fence about this film. It looks like it may be a good action film, but some of the dialogue/accents in the trailer are extremely cheesy.

    I read the script away-back-when and - I think - Mackie's character uses knifes in the movie, but they give him a gun on the poster. Either way, the script was solid, it's a dude's action flick from beginning to end. I hate that they had to rewrite and/or reshoot one particular scene due to the batman-theater-shooting, I believe there was a similar scene in the script about the bad guys shooting up a movie theater.

    Great poster pic. Anthony Mackie has to be one of my favorite actors now hands down.
