TRAILER – The Gangster Squad

 Sadly not the follow-up to the Monster Squad, although this still looks cool.

Ok the main reason I checked this trailer out to begin with is because I genuinely thought this was a sequel to ‘The Monster Squad’. That initial thought was shattered  after twenty seconds passed and no sign of Wolfman or Dracula just dudes in hats and trenchcoats shooting at each other with tommy guns. In any case I thought the trailer looked pretty cool and reminded me a little of the Untouchables which is enough to make me want to watch this.

I will now go back to my letter writing campaign for ‘The Monster Squad 2 ‘

Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, 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. “Gangster Squad” is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD’s efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time.
