Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures announced today that the release date for “Gangster Squad” is September 7, 2012. The announcement was made by Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. Pictures President, Domestic Distribution.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”), “Gangster Squad” stars Oscar(R) nominees Josh Brolin (“Milk,” “True Grit”) and Ryan Gosling (“Half Nelson,” “Blue Valentine”), and Academy Award(R) winner Sean Penn (“Milk,” “Mystic River”), as well as Oscar(R) nominee Nick Nolte (“Warrior,” “Affliction”), Emma Stone (“The Help”), Anthony Mackie (upcoming “abraham lincoln:Vampire Hunter”), Giovanni Ribisi (“Avatar”) and Michael Pena (“Tower Heist”).
Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (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 (Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart.
Shot entirely in and around Los Angeles, including in many of the actual locations featured in the story, “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. The screenplay is by Will Beall (TV’s “Castle”), based on the book Gangster Squad by Paul Lieberman. The film is produced by Dan Lin (“Sherlock Holmes”), Kevin McCormick (“The Lucky One”) and Michael Tadross (“Arthur”). The executive producers are Ruben Fleischer, Paul Lieberman and Bruce Berman.
Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, a Lin Pictures/Kevin McCormick production, “Gangster Squad.” The film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.
Sony Pictures India announced Monday that it will advance the India release of Amazing Spider-Man to June 29th, ahead of the film’s July 3 U.S. opening.
The Marc Webb-directed summer tentpole also stars acclaimed Indian actor Irrfan Khan (Slumdog Millionaire) as Dr. Ratha, a close associate of Dr. Curt Connors aka The Lizard played by Rhys Ifans. As with most major Hollywood releases here, Spider-Man will also be dubbed in various regional languages.
“Each of the Spider-Man franchise films has broken records on its release in this territory. We are very confident that Indian audiences will enjoy the new reboot of the franchise even more because they are watching it before the U.S. and also, as this film has an India connect,” said Sony Pictures India MD Kercy Daruwala. In 2007, Spider-Man 3 grossed Rupees 680 million ($13.6 million), which at the time, made it the highest grossing Hollywood film here according to Sony Pictures India, until that record was broken by Avatar which grossed over $22 million in 2009.
Sony’s summer lineup kicks off with the May 25 worldwide opening of Men In Black 3 followed by Amazing Spider-Man leading up to the August 3 worldwide release of the Total Recall reboot starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel.
Sony’s other big release of the year, the 23rd instalment of the James Bond franchise, Skyfall, will open in India on Nov. 2, a week ahead of its U.S. release date. The previous James Bond outing, Quantum of Solace, also opened in India a week ahead of its U.S. release date in November 2008.
“Our lineup of strong franchise films with mass appeal and already established high brand recall are ideal for unique and exciting co-promotional activities with like-minded brands, both local and international,” said Sony Pictures India, director – marketing, Divya Pathak. “Many brands are choosing to partner with our blockbusters because of the incomparable scale of these movies.”
“After completing 75 years as a studio in India, 31 of which I have personally been a part of, I can say without a doubt that this is our biggest and most exciting lineup ever with tried and tested record-breaking performance at the Indian box office,” added Daruwala. “On the whole, we have an ideal mix of the biggest blockbuster action movies as well as comedy, drama and family films with an arsenal of great directors and top rung stars.”
Peter Parker finds a clue that might help him understand why his parents disappeared when he was young. His path puts him on a collision course with Dr. Curt Connors, his father’s former partner.
Crazy, stupid, love, indeed. “Gangster Squad” — the “L.A. Confidential”-meets-“Untouchables” crime drama that Warner Bros. still seems set to release this year — has its first trailer, which means “Crazy, Stupid, Love” fans can watch Ryan Gosling charm Emma Stone all over again.
The catch: Gosling is an LAPD officer, Stone is a moll, and Sean Penn’s Mickey Cohen would probably not think twice about killing them both.
Directed by Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”), “Gangster Squad” — which is based on Paul Lieberman’s seven-part Los Angeles Times series “Tales From The Gangster Squad” — was initially locked into an October release date, but was moved to “TBD” in favor of Ben Affleck’s “Argo.” Still, discounting this one as anything other than an early Oscar player seems foolish. In addition to Penn (seemingly using Leonardo DiCaprio’s leftover makeup from “J. Edgar”), Gosling and Stone, the cast includes Josh Brolin, Anthony Mackie, Giovanni Ribisi, Robert Patrick and Nick Nolte. That’s a great roster and all, but let’s focus back on Gosling and Stone.
“You want to take me away from all this,” she purrs. “No ma’am, I was just hoping to take you to bed,” he retorts. Swoon! Get these two a remake of “Bringing Up Baby,” stat.
