Sean Penn (Fair Game) is at war with Los Angeles in the R-rated crime movie Gangster Squad.

Set in 1949 Los Angeles, the drama film is based on true events. Penn plays Brooklyn-born Mob king Mickey Cohen, who rules the City of Angels, reaping his ill-gotten gains from drugs, guns, prostitutes and, if he has his way, every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it with the protection of his paid goons, as well as the police and politicians under his thumb.

But a small crew of Lapd outsiders are determined to bring down Cohen, led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin, Men in Black 3) and Sgt. Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling, Blue Valentine).
