The UK branch of Warner Brothers has revealed that it is planning to release on Blu-ray director Ruben Fleischer's Gangster Squad (2012), starring Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Nick Nolte, and Emma Stone. The preliminary release date set by the studio is May 20th.
Crime drama set in the 1940s and '50s in Los Angeles inspired by the real life story of vicious mob boss Mickey Cohen and the LAPD officers who tried to bring him down. After moving to LA from the East Coast, Cohen (Penn) has taken control of the town. A force to be reckoned with, he not only has his gang to do his bidding but a number of policemen and politicians are also under his command. Police Chief Bill Parker (Nolte) instructs Sergeant John O'Mara (Brolin) to wage war against Cohen and his men. With only a small squad which includes his colleague, Jerry Wooters (Gosling), O'Mara attempts to regain control of the city. Meanwhile, Wooters gets involved with the mobster's girlfriend, Grace Faraday (Stone), which, if discovered, will only serve to enrage Cohen further.

Agree on all points about it being shot on digital. The blu-ray cover art, movie poster and the Official Soundtrack Inspired By does a better job of replicating that era. To think people looked forward to this being the modern day Untouchables. Looks like that movie remains timelessly true to its name.
I'll buy it for the price it deserves. I was able to enjoy it to some extent thankfully but at the same time, I've rolled my eyes more than I could count with this one.
Hey, I thought it was a fun movie. A bigger, dumber, modernized, more action-oriented L.A. noir film as opposed to the great L.A. Confidential...entertaining but ultimately empty fluff. Not worthy of purchasing, in my opinion.
Really hope the scene they filmed at work will be on atleast as a deleted scene, It was such a cool sequence. And the play back looked incredible in side the historic Chinese.
fingers crossed, fingers crossed.
the 5 nights they were filming that sequence it really was like having stepped through a time warp, and being inside the Chinese's lobby and auditorium as well as our famous handprint forecourt. every little detail absolutely perfect. And the best part the cast and crew were so respectful to the property. Not every production is like that, some just come in and start banging crap around and breaking things showing no respect, or have extras running around dropping food and garbage everywhere.
The Gangster Squad crew though were amazin, 100 percent kudos to them all, they were All great. The way that anyone who has ever had a film crew at their home or work hopes they will be
