Try to take your eyes off Emma Stone on this new poster for Gangster Squad
It's hard to resist THE GANGSTER SQUAD. All the essentials are there: great cast, great subject matter, and a good director. The trailers that we have seen thus far are badass. My biggest draw here is seeing Sean Penn as a crazy with power mob kingpin.
A poster for the film has debuted today and it has several of the film's characters on it. It looks as though it may be later broken down into four separate character posters. Honestly, I can't tell if this is a decent poster or not because I have my eyes glued to Emma Stone in both of the inside frames. Two Emma's? A man's dream.
Check out the poster below.
Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and--if he has his way--every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all 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 even the bravest, street-hardened cop...except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O'Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen's world apart. "The Gangster Squad" is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD's efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time.
