Take glimpses of some action-packed scenes while learning how Denzel Washington's Frank Lucas came out on top in the drug industry.
Allowing moviegoers to see more action and suspense they will find in the upcoming "American Gangster", Universal Pictures has brought online a new international trailer for the action drama exclusively at Empireonline.com.
Also can be accessed through AceShowbiz's American Gangster Trailer page, the trailer starts off with a bunch of faces getting beat down before shifting to how Denzel Washington's character Frank Lucas came out on top in the drug industry.
Directed by Ridley Scott, "American Gangster" is based on the true story of Lucas, a heroin kingpin from Manhattan who smuggled the drug into the country in the coffins of American soldiers returning from the Vietnam War. To prepare for his role, Washington spent many times with Lucas and later even bought him a Rolls-Royce as a sign of gratitude after filming wrapped.
