Dirty Harry would love 'Gangster Squad,' a movie about cops who operate so far outside the law they make Clint Eastwood's signature detective look like a pencil-pushing dweeb. Assembled by LAPD police chief Bill Parker (Nick Nolte), and supposedly inspired by a true story, the members of the so-called Gangster Squad operate as judge, jury, and executioners. They don't arrest their targets; they "wage war" against their enemy, mob boss Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn). In their quest to bust up Cohen's rackets, the Gangster Squad brandishes about a billion guns and not a single badge. Hell, even Dirty Harry waited until the end of his movie to toss his away.
Hot on the heels of yesterday's announcement that Joseph Gordon-Levitt joined the cast of Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's 'Sin City 2' comes breaking news that Josh Brolin has signed on too and will star as the film's lead.
'Gangster Squad' -- featuring an all-star cast including Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Sean Penn and Josh Brolin -- hits theaters next week, and we're excited to see one of the most anticipated movies of the new year on the big screen. While Warner Bros. released a number of trailers, posters, images and behind-the-scenes footage to get us all pumped, it's now time to bring on the clips -- six clips in fact!
Looks like the 'Gangster Squad' marketing has recovered from the movie's delay and reshoots, as we're now being bombarded with looks at the film. Now there's five character posters that help show the look and feel of the fillm.
Josh Brolin and Sean Penn have been working together often recently. Both appeared in 2008's 'Milk' and will be in next year's 'Gangster Squad.' Now it appears the duo will work together again, though with Penn directing Brolin in his adaptation of 'Crazy for the Storm.'
See all those cool cats up there? They're just chillin', waiting for the new international trailer to be released for their upcoming movie 'Gangster Squad.' Looks like they can finally stop hanging out at the park and go watch that new trailer that was just released today.
Though it might still be missing a release date, Ruben Fleischer's 'Gangster Squad' now has a trailer, which features Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling chasing Sean Penn's Mickey Cohen through Los Angeles. It's more than likely this will be attached to 'Dark Shadows' this weekend, but if you don't want to wait, the trailer's here.
We haven’t seen much of Josh Brolin’s Tommy Lee Jones impersonation for the upcoming ‘Men In Black 3,’ but the brief snippet at the end of the full trailer was spot on. He nails Jones’ laconic line delivery. And almost everyone who has commented on Brolin’s deadpan take said that they love it. I say “almost” everyone because Jones has weighed in. And he doesn’t seem to care for it.
This week's 'Saturday Night Live' is hosted by Josh Brolin with musical guest and Sting soundalike Gotye. We give you a rundown of the episode with all the highs -- two digital shorts this week! -- and lows.
While Josh Brolin playing a younger version of Tommy Lee Jones is certainly a big draw for this summer's 'Men in Black 3,' we've seen little proof of alien life in the teasers and photos... Until now.
