First up, a new banner poster for "Gangster Squad" has been unveiled, giving the key characters in the film -- coppers played by Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling; Emma Stone's femme fatale and Sean Penn's blustering Mickey Cohen -- all a little bit of shine. You know the story by now: based on a series of articles in the L.A. Times by Paul Lieberman, and adapted by former L.A. cop-turned-novelist Will Beall, the film tells the story of an L.A.P.D. unit set up in the ‘40s to fight the growing influence of the East Coast Mafia under the leadship of Mickey Cohen, a mogul who started as muscle for Al Capone in Chicago.
Co-starring Nick Nolte, Robert Patrick, Michael Peña, Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Mackie and more, "Gangster Squad" opens on September 7th. [Yahoo]
