Opening this weekend, Gangster Squad stars Sean Penn, Nick Nolte, Ryan Gosling, and Emma Stone

Best known for 2009 horror comedy Zombieland, Director Reuben Fleischer’s third film, Gangster Squad, pays homage to 1940s Los Angeles. This gritty police film opens at Harkins Southlake 14 Theatres this Friday. 

Gangster Squad chronicles the LAPD’s fight to keep East Coast mafia out of Los Angeles in the 1940s and ‘50s. The film stars Sean Penn as real-life mobster Mickey Cohen, California’s most notorious gangster of the era, and Nick Nolte as Chief of Police William Parker.

In a bid to bring down Cohen, Parker recruits a special squad to stop Cohen from taking over the city completely. Led by Josh Brolin’s character John O’Mara and Ryan Gosling’s Sgt. Jerry Wooters, the Gangster Squad wages war against the power-hungry East Coast mobster.

Emma Stone also joins the cast as Grace Faraday, reuniting with Fleischer and Gosling of Zombieland and Crazy Stupid Love, respectively.

Given the “R” rating of Gangster Squad, head to Harkins Theatres in Southlake Town Square for just $6, children ages 3-8 can hang out in the “PlayCenter” while you catch the new year’s hottest film.
