We all love a good gangster epic, right? Whether it’s a black and white (heat) Cagney classic, the visceral violence of Scorcese, the grandeur of a DePalma period piece or the brutality of a East End brit flick, mobsters, more often than not, make for gripping viewing. We here at Thn are eager to see Ruben Fleischer’s flashy, stylistic approach with fact-based all-star ensemble Gangster Squad. The latest in a long line from the fascinating sub-genre.

The film will see Nick Nolte’s Police Chief assemble an ‘off-the-book’ team of fearless law enforcers to take back the City Of Angels from Sean Penn’s ruthless crime boss, Mickey Cohen. Check out this brilliant featurette for the film co-staring a breathless cast of Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Emma Stone, Robert Patrick, Anthony Mackie, Giovanni Ribisi, Michael Pena, Mireille Enos, Frank Grillo and Sullivan Stapleton.
