'Gangster Squad' Trailer 2: Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone Get Hot and Steamy in New Trailer (VIDEO)
Gangster Squad is back in action -- and it looks like the wait for Ruben Fleischer’s gritty, noir drama may have been worth it.
In the wake of the Aurora, Colo. mass shooting, Warner Bros. — the studio also behind The Dark Knight Rises — postponed the release of the gangster flick, pushing its September 7 debut date to January 11.
A sequence featuring a gunfight in a movie theater had to be edited out of the film. The original trailer, which showed a few seconds of the gruesome scene, was instantly yanked by the studio after the Aurora shooting.
Watch the trailer above.
Gangster Squad tells the based-in-fact story of late 1940s Los Angeles, in which vicious mobster Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs a criminal empire. Tired of being powerless against Cohen and his syndicate, Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) puts together a crew of vigilante cops, working “off the books" to take down the crime boss.Emma Stone. Gosling stars as reckless cop Jerry Wooters, while Stone plays femme-fatale Grace Faraday, who is in bed with both sides.
