Celebrate the arrival ofGangster Squad
in cinemas this week with this clip.
Director Ruben Fleischer
made some waves with his first feature – the genre comedy Zombieland
back in 2009. He followed it up with disappointing comedy number 30 Minutes or Less
in 2011, which was mostly about Jesse Eisenberg
being a dick without owning Facebook.Fleischer
will be hoping for a better response to his latest – the period crime thriller Gangster Squad
. It’s a fictionalised account of the struggle between the forces of the law and the increasingly aggressive actions of organised criminals in and around LA in the 40s and 50s, based on a book by Paul Lieberman
The $75 million film has attracted a hell of a cast – including Sean Penn
as big crime boss Mickey Cohen and Josh Brolin
as the cop hot on his trail. He enlists a reluctant Ryan Gosling
to form a team which can operate outside of the law and refuses to take bribes. Others on the team include Anthony Mackie
, Giovanni Ribisi
and Michael Pena
and there’s support from Nick Nolte
and the marvellous Frank Grillo
. Oh and keeping the female end up is the ubiquitous Emma Stone
, in her second screen pairing with Gosling
after Crazy, Stupid, Love
Today, we’ve got a clip from the film which shows Brolin’s
O’Mara trying to convince Gosling’s
Jerry Wooters to get off his drunken ass and help. Check it out.
We’ve got a bunch of other clips to come, stay tuned!Gangster Squad is in cinemas from the 10th of January.
