Gamer Fit Nation had the chance to get a sneak peak at the new movie from Ruben Fleischer, Gangster Squad. The film stars Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, Emma Stone, and Sean Penn as Mickey Cohen. Written by Will Beall, Gangster Squad narrates the story of the LAPD’s fight to keep the Mafia out of Los Angeles in the 1940’s and 50’s. The movie was originally set to release September 7, 2012, but in the wake of the 2012 Aurora, Colorado shooting, was pushed back to January 11, 2013, it’s official release date.
Nationally acclaimed tattoo artist, Mr. Cartoon was asked to take the creative lead on the marketing campaign. From what we’ve seen so far, the artwork involved in the promotional campaign is fascinating and the same can be said for the graphic detail within the motion picture.
This action packed crime film is a solid picture for anyone going to the movies to have a good time. Gangster Squad’s stylistic nature kept the film captivating from start to finish, and the actors did a great job keeping their cool as 1940’s police officers and gangsters. Sean Penn plays a memorable Mickey Cohen, and Josh Brolin is an excellent counterpart. This is a classic good guy vs. bad guy film and I loved every single minute of it!
Make sure you check out Gangster Squad on January 11th!
