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.

Sean Penn: Action Hero? Stranger things have happened -- must we remind you that Liam Neeson is Hollywood's No. 1 butt-kicker? Even so, it's a tad strange to think of the stoic Penn taking part in car chases and gunfights, but that seems like it's close to happening.

After being delayed by 'The Dark Knight Rises' theater shooting, and after a round of reshoots that removed gunplay in a theater setting, it looks like 'Gangster Squad' is back into fighting shape, and now there's a new trailer that shows a lot of new footage (and removes the shootout in the theater).

'Gangster Squad' was delayed, and it seems Warner Bros. is using this time (un)wisely to do more marketing -- like making this horrible new poster that Photoshops the life right out of all of the actors. How could you do this to Ryan Gosling, you guys?!

Sean Penn is one of just a handful of actors who have the ability to completely transform to fit their screen personas. He famously became gay activist Harvey Milk for the lead role in 'Milk,' which won him the Oscar for Best Actor in 2009; and the grieving father in another Oscar-winning performance for 'Mystic River.' Now, he's taking on another transformative role in 'This Must Be the Place,' where he portrays a busted, run-down musician with big hair and tons of makeup. Yes, Sean Penn is portraying Cher...
