Gangster squad has a release date Crimeziners and that date is September 7th 2012. In case you missed Crimezines exclusive announcement of the movie that out Confidentials Ellroy, here is the essential dope— Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show, 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. Crimezine cannot wait, While Sean Penn looks like a Mickey Cohen Lite, we know he will more than make up in attitude what he lacks in weight in his portrayal of the ice-cream loving crime kingpin.
Postscript: Due to the Aurora cinema slayings, The Gangster Squad release date has been delayed until January. The current trailers involve gun toting gangsters spraying a screaming cinema audiences with gunfire… Why is there never a tooled up NRA member on hand when you need one?.
