In this clip of 'Public Enemies', Johnny Depp's John Dillinger and his gang are forced to defend for themselves when FBI Agent Melvin Purvis leads a raid on the house where they hide.
Yahoo! Movies has got a hold of the first ever clip from "Public Enemies" and has put it out for viewing pleasure. Entitled "Assault", the one minute sneak peek features the action scene wherein John Dillinger and his outlaw gang are fighting back the police raid led by FBI Agent Melvin Purvis in the middle of the night.
From the director of "Collateral" comes "Public Enemies", a movie about charismatic bank robber Dillinger whose lightning raids made him the number one target of J. Edgar Hoover's fledgling FBI and its top agent Purvis, and a folk hero to much of the downtrodden public. It is adapted from Bryan Burrough's book "Public Enemies: America's Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933-34".
Presenting a collaboration of Johnny Depp and Christian Bale as John Dillinger and Melvin Purvis respectively, the crime drama for Universal Pictures sees also the likes of Marion Cotillard, Channing Tatum, Giovanni Ribisi, Stephen Dorff and Billy Crudup in the cast. "Public Enemies" will raid theaters across the U.S. on July 1.
