Banner Poster for Gangster Squad

Gangster Squad (September 2012)

A new banner-sized poster for Gangster Squad has been released by the studio (right; click for larger image). The use of color and styling in this poster is amazing, giving it a real sense of time and place. Which is …

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.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer from a screenplay adapted from the yet-to-be-published book of the same title by Paul Lieberman (Gangster Squad, St. Martin's Press August 2012 hardcover), the film opens in US theaters on September 7th. Watch a trailer below.
