The crime film is one of the greatest genres to provide audiences with a mainline to adrenaline charged action drama and emotion. If you don’t go for all the fantasy CGI and 3D cinema, Ruben Fleischer’s upcoming old school cops vs. criminals film Gangster Squad (the title even sounds like a pulp novel) might be for you. It looks like a throwback to classics we love like Once Upon a Time in America, The Untouchables and L.A. Confidential.

Set in the 1940s and 50s, the hard boiled tale focuses on legendary mobster Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) and the special group of cops assigned to take him down (led by Josh Brolin) and keep the East Coast Mafia out of California. The film features a superb cast of actors like Nick Nolte, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Giovanni Ribisi Robert Patrick, and Michael Pena.

Alright! Sean Penn is back doing what he does best, playing colorful characters with resonance. We can’t wait to see this one on the big screen! It will hit theaters October 19th.

    Reflections of Lee Tamahori’s Mulholland Falls, with Nick Nolte as the head of
    L.A.’s Hat Squad. It’s good to see Josh Brolin’s 2nd coming proving very strong
    for him, besides Nolte himself. Cant wait to se it.
