Ryan Gosling Goes Violent Against Sean Penn in First 'Gangster Squad' Trailer
Gosling joins Josh Brolin to take down mafia boss Penn, who runs all the illegal businesses in 1949's Los Angeles just after the World War II.


Warner Bros. Pictures finally reveals a very first trailer for Ruben Fleischer's star-studded mob drama "Gangster Squad". The vintage-themed promo is loaded with brutal action scenes involving the likes of Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn, Josh Brolin and Nick Nolte. Also seen in the trailer is Emma Stone, who is pursued to bed by Gosling.

Set in 1949's Los Angeles, "Gangster Squad" follows Penn's Mickey Cohen, who is a ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob. He runs the show in the town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and every wire bet placed west of Chicago.

Cohen runs the dirty businesses 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 the bravest, street-hardened cop, except a secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O'Mara (Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen's world apart.

Director Fleischer once discussed the basic premise of the based-on-true story movie. He told Entertainment Weekly, "It's a good leaping -off point. We've taken some creative license but tried to stay true to the original story and characters as much as possible."

The filmmaker explained the role of Gosling's character in the movie as saying, "Ryan's character also went to war, but when he came back, he was a little disillusioned. So he's more on the fence, hanging out in nightclubs and hanging out with guys who might be gangsters."

"He's less clear on where he stands in terms of standing up against Mickey Cohen," Fleischer continued. "But he finds himself in a love triangle with Cohen and Emma Stone's femme fatale character."

"Gangster Squad" is also supported by Anthony Mackie, Giovanni Ribisi, Robert Patrick, Troy Garity and Michael Pena.
